IG has been increasingly posting Spanish content in recent years. I was pleased to meet their translator in Doha.
In her fight to end sexual abuse, the Olympic champion is challenging the very institutions she led to glory.
I remain so impressed that it’s the athletes pushing this issue forward. Not USAG, not the American Medical Association, not the NCAA, not IOC. Not coaches.

Gymnastics is in the headlines everywhere.
How many parents in future are going to avoid the sport for their children, … just in case? 🙁
On the up side, children who do participate in Gymnastics should be safer. Education programs will be emphasizing coaching ethics and child safety.
The rule of two. (Or Three.) Here’s the Coaching Association of Canada version:

Of course some of the mainstream media doesn’t understand Gymnastics. But they do understand headlines.
I messaged Dr. JONATHAN LAPOOK of CBS NEWS yesterday explaining they had the headline wrong. Nassar was a doctor, never a coach.
They still hadn’t fixed their mistake as of today. No response from Lapook.
See the elbow in the right bottom corner of that photo. It’s a hospital worker from the middle of the country, who doesn’t feel that she can come forward without threatening her livelihood.
Stop to consider the courage it takes to stand up and make such a painful, personal accusation.
Our thanks to Rachael Denhollander, the first to publicly accuse Larry Nassar.
