That sounds like a good move.Riley McCusker has made a gym and coaching change.
I hope that training alongside Jade Carey will be a positive experience for Riley.
And.......TSL has made an update video about this.
Not at camp. They should do it in competition.I suspect that Simone loves competing more than I love pasta, but wouldn’t it be a kick in USAG’s ass if she refused to participate in camp, donned her teal leo, and just sat in the middle of the floor with Lee and McCusker? That might be the only thing that gets them to stop talking to the lawyers and start doing what’s right.
Actually she can't because she's gone pro. But I support basically any for of protest at this point.She should threaten to move to the NCAA track. (I know she wouldn't because of the Olympics but it would be good to see USAG's head explode at the idea that she might not be there because she's competing with her college team.)
Today, we have just learned this gem about USA Gymnastics’ finances.
Just burn it all down, already.
That tells me they’re still paying lawyers to try to stay alive and avoid any semblance of a full investigation. The harder they try, the more expensive the lawyers get.Today, we have just learned this gem about USA Gymnastics’ finances.
Just burn it all down, already.
Between August and October 2018, Office of the Inspector General investigators and FBI agents from local field offices interviewed Olympic champions Aly Raisman, McKayla Maroney and Jordyn Wieber, and Maggie Nichols, a 2015 World champion, and their parents about the FBI’s investigation of Nassar, according to interviews and documents obtained by the Southern California News Group.
The Justice Department, however, still has not released the OIG report on the FBI’s role in the Nassar scandal a year and a half after the OIG official leading the investigation told parties in the case that the investigators’ report had been forwarded to the Justice Department’s Public Integrity Section. Two federal prosecutors in the PIS also confirmed they had received the report nearly a year ago, an attorney involved in the case said.
“The Department of Justice Office of the Inspector General is investigating the allegations concerning the FBI’s handling of the Nassar investigation, and the victims and the public should rest assured our findings will be made public at the end of our investigation,” Stephanie M. Logan, senior public affairs specialist for the Office of the Inspector General, said in an email to SCNG last month.
Terin Humphrey has now come forward as a Nassar survivor.
Warning: There are graphic details in the linked OC Register article. I wanted to warn anyone here that would need to know this before they read the article.
While [Terin] Humphrey, later an NCAA champion at Alabama, served as an athlete representative for USA Gymnastics between 2009 and 2019 and member of the Olympic and World Championships teams selection committee and continued to have an uneasy feeling around Nassar, she did not come to terms with her sexual assault until memories of the abuse were triggered by treatment for her pregnancy last year, according to Humphrey and a sworn statement under penalty of perjury by psychiatrist who examined her earlier this month. Humphrey said she was unable to even tell her husband, Uriah Holcomb, about the abuse until last month.
