  1. Dear Ms. Humphrey,
    Please, accept my heartfelt support for all of your work in, and on behalf of gymnastics. You demonstrate a wisdom far beyond your years, and I am grateful for your honesty. I hope the entire gymnastics community will rally around your passionate story. I understand your attempts to be a “team player” that were misled and betrayed by those in leadership. Your courage is palpable.

    If I may quote Bill Bradley:
    “As the ancient Greeks understood, great athletes not only accept the ordeal of competition and the trial of strength inherent in it, but also show us a connection between what we do each day and something that is larger than we are and lasts longer than we do.” Former Senator, Bill Bradley, p 107, Olympic Odyssey

    And, to the leadership:
    “To see what is right and not to do it is cowardice.” Confucius

    Lately, cowardice seems to find itself clothed in the robes of law.

    Respectfully,
    William A Sands, PhD, FACSM
