… the judge ordered the TTGF (Trinidad and Tobago Gymnastics Federation) to compensate Williams for its decision to withdraw her from representing this country in the 2016 Rio Olympics, and instead replace her with Canadian-born alternate Marisa Dick. …
I’m surprised to see this ruling.
In many sports any athlete can be replaced by Federations for many reasons. Can a judge rule on whether or not an athlete should be withdrawn?
That said, I was in Rio for the Olympic Test Meet podium training. Thema did not look injured to me at the time.
TTGF might appeal, of course. I doubt they have $200k in the bank.
Gymnastics coaches are obviously well remunerated. 😀
Aside from the Football head coach, six of his assistants make more than $400k.
Simone has a sideline of Caboodles products for sportswomen.
#3. Biles, a four-time gold medalist at the 2016 Rio Olympics, hasn’t lost any steam in the years since she dominated the Games. Biles ranked in the top 5 in social media followers across every social platform and was also bolstered by strong search interest.
#4. Raisman, a three-time Olympic Gold medalist (and Rio teammate of #3 Simone Biles), shares her teammate’s skill for social media. Search interest also factored into her jump to #4: as a vocal figure in the USA Gymnastics scandal, Raisman has consistently been in the news.
