Below is an email sent on February 19 by Susan Woessner, USA Swimming’s director of safe sport. We have removed the name of the recipient.
Now that Woessner is on record as “committed to trying to right” the Alex Pussieldi wrong, perhaps she can respond to Concussion Inc.’s question about how she and her assistant Liz Hoendervoogt fumbled/blew off an eyewitness complaint regarding Pussieldi’s behavior, by Florida parent J.P. Cote, just last year.

Yes, Nancy Fisher is with USA Swimming, not a reporter. I understand your frustration and I can only offer frustration myself when I review the file and wonder why more was not done then. I can tell you that we are committed to trying to right that wrong now.
I am sitting on a plane taking off shortly – can I call you this afternoon when I land?
