At the Heart of Gold – May 3rd on HBO

I had high hopes for new USAG CEO Li Li Leung.

She asked to be judged not on her words, but her deeds.

Shortly after that statement USA Gymnastics bungled the vetting of a first full-time director of sports medicine and science. That’s a position that would truly help the organization.

At the Heart of Gold argues that Nassar succeeded despite the many complaints against him because the people who could’ve done something about them never acted on them.

He belonged to a system that protected him and cared more about his importance in winning gold medals than the wellbeing of the girls he harmed.  …
