Sexual Abuse Scandal Engulfs Olympic Athletics
Olympic-level athletics in this country is under pressure. A series of high-profile scandals in USA Diving, USA Swimming, USA Gymnastics and USA Taekwondo suggest that sexual abuse and exploitation are common and widespread at the highest levels of international competition.
Ohio State University Under Fire
Many universities have also come under fire, in part because colleges and schools are often affiliated with the United States Olympic Committee in some regard. We've seen allegations of negligence in relation to sexual abuse recently leveled against Michigan State University, the University of Southern California, and now, Ohio State University. We have every intention of getting to the bottom of this problem.
New Lawsuits: Ohio State Failed To Protect Athletes
In two breaking new class action lawsuits, former student-athletes say they were abused for years by doctors and coaches bound to protect them. In one case, a former Olympic-level diver accuses Ohio State of failing to protect her from William Bohonyi, a USA Diving-affiliated coach who taught through the Ohio State Diving Club. The second case revolves around Richard Strauss, a now-deceased team doctor who may have molested hundreds of young men from 14 different sports at the school.
Both lawsuits claim that high-level administrators at Ohio State ignored repeated reports of sexual abuse, choosing to maintain their prestigious positions and lucrative sponsorship deals rather than protect young student-athletes.
