Sarah Ehekircher at ‘Olympians Rising’: ‘Is the media keeping USA Swimming’s dirty little secret on sexual abuse?

Published October 25th, 2018, Uncategorized

As we reported in advance, Sarah Ehekircher and attorney Jonathan Little did meet Wednesday with top USA Swimming officials (though CEO Tim Hinchey, who seems to have swerved them on his schedule at the last minute, was not among them). Concussion Inc. will have more shortly on what came out of the meeting.

In the meantime, Olympians Rising — a group of athletes dedicated to fixing the broken U.S. Olympic Committee — has published a guest column by Ehekircher under the headline “Is the media keeping USA Swimming’s dirty little secret on sexual abuse?” It is highly recommended. See https://www.olympiansrising.org/newsupdates/guest-blog-is-the-media-keeping-usa-swimming-s-dirty-little-secret-on-sexual-abuse.

Readers here will recall that last month Ehekircher ferreted out information at the U.S. Center for SafeSport website about newly banned coaches that has gotten zero media attention. From the site, Concussion Inc. pulled down the SafeSport “interim suspension” of conveniently retired coach Steven Lochte, creepy father of Ugly American Olympian Ryan Lochte; see http://concussioninc.net/?p=13252. As usual, there were no takers from other news outlets.
