"Very Helpful." I had no idea what to do. I just knew I had to do something.
Hundreds of young women have filed suit against USA Gymnastics, accusing the Olympic organization of failing to protect them from the advances of Larry Nassar, a Team USA doctor working out of Michigan State University. But Nassar, now a convicted child molester, is only the tip of the iceberg, these young plaintiffs say.
Olympic Sex Abuse Scandal Engulfs Ohio State
In their lawsuits, the women accuse the US Olympic Committee of presiding over a wide array of "national governing bodies," including USA Gymnastics, USA Swimming and USA Diving, where sexual abuse, molestation and exploitation are extremely common. And what began at Michigan State University has quickly come to implicate other university systems.
The controversy has now spilled over to Ohio State, where many of the University's prestigious sports programs serve to train and cultivate future competitors on Team USA. In a new lawsuit, a young female plaintiff accuses Ohio State of failing to protect her from a USA Diving coach's sexual advances.
The problem, however, is not exclusive to USA Diving, she says. Olympic-level athletics, as overseen by the US Olympic Committee, is a breeding ground for sexual abuse and horrific misconduct, the plaintiff claims, as executives and coaches alike attempt to protect their prestigious positions and huge revenue by ignoring reports of sexual abuse and allowing pedophile coaches to victimize student-athletes.
