The United States Olympic Committee has a huge problem. In hundreds of civil lawsuits, young athletes from across the county accuse the Olympic organization of failing to protect them from horrific sexual abuse at the hands of pedophile coaches and volunteers. USA Swimming, USA Diving, USA Gymnastics and USA Taekwondo have all come under fire.
Buckeyes Shocked By Sexual Abuse Allegations
Over the last 30 years, nearly 300 Team USA-affiliated coaches have been accused of sexual misconduct against young athletes. Now, this growing scandal has spilled over to affect the universities and colleges that are affiliated with Olympic-level training and competition. The Larry Nassar scandal in USA Gymnastics has implicated Michigan State University, where Nassar served as a doctor for years. And Ohio State University, where USA Diving coach William Bohonyi has been accused of sexual abuse, has also come under scrutiny.
In a new class action lawsuit, one former student-diver accuses Ohio State and USA Diving of creating a culture in which young athletes were vulnerable to dangerous sexual predators. In court documents, she says that no Olympic-level sport is free from sexual abuse and exploitation.
Investigation Launched Into Ohio State Track & Field
In light of the Nassar scandal, and a similar crisis at the University of Southern California, we believe that these serious allegations against Ohio State must be taken seriously. To understand the extent of this problem, we're reaching out to members of the Buckeyes track and field community who have experienced sexual abuse at the hands of coaches or volunteers.
Have you or a loved one been affected by this issue? We want to hear from you. Some abuse survivors may even be eligible to pursue legal action and demand accountability from responsible parties.
Your Rights As A Student-Athlete
As a student, you have a right to live free from sexual abuse and exploitation. As we've seen in so many universities recently, many schools aren't taking their obligation to protect seriously. But survivors can fight back. Hundreds and hundreds of young women are filing civil lawsuits against the schools and athletic clubs that left them vulnerable to dangerous pedophiles.
