New Class Action Says Sexual Abuse Is Rampant In Team USA Training

In her class action lawsuit, recently filed in federal court, a former Olympic-level diver who participated in Ohio State's Diving Club says she was exploited for years by William Bohonyi, a diving coach affiliated with USA Diving and the United States Olympic Committee. But her lawsuit's allegations don't end with USA Diving.

Cross Country Runner

In court documents, the young woman claims that Olympic-level sports across the nation, including at Ohio State's many prestigious USOC-affiliated programs, are a breeding ground for rampant sexual abuse and exploitation. The problem, she claims, spans across all 47 of the United States Olympic Committee's 47 national governing bodies, from USA Gymnastics to USA Track and Field.

How Widespread Is Sexual Abuse In Olympic-Level Athletics?

Our experienced attorneys are taking these allegations very seriously. In light of the Larry Nassar scandal in USA Gymnastics, we believe similar crises may be about to break in other sports. Nassar, a doctor at Michigan State University, molested over 300 young women in his doctor's office while serving as a doctor for USA Gymnastics.

Thankfully, Nassar has now been convicted for his crimes and the young women he abused are pursuing justice against USA Gymnastics and Michigan State University by filing their own civil lawsuits. But if this problem is as widespread as many survivors believe, similar scandals could be on the horizon at other schools.

Since 1982, almost 300 Team USA-affiliated coaches and volunteers have been accused for sexually assaulting young student-athletes. It's a crisis of epic proportions.

Attorneys Launch Investigation Into Ohio State Cross Country

With damning new allegations leveled against Ohio State University, our experienced attorneys have no choice but to stand up for victims and demand accountability. We've launched a full investigation into Ohio State's sexual abuse reporting and response policies, with a particular focus on investigating individual complaints of sexual exploitation.

If you or a loved one were victimized while training in cross country at Ohio State, we need to hear from you. To understand the extent of this alleged problem, we're reaching out to members of the Buckeye cross country community to learn more. You can find more information for free.
