Widespread Sex Abuse of Young Female Swimmers Continues To Plague USA Swimming

As I’ve related previously, Yahoo Sports and its affiliate ThePostGame sent me to the Olympic Swimming Trials in Omaha last month to wrap up a long feature on what has happened — and not happened — since ABC’s 20/20, two years ago, exposed the issue of systematic sexual abuse in competitive youth swimming.
In its wisdom, and in something of a “profile in caution,” Yahoo chose not to publish the story I delivered.
I am grateful to MomsTeam.com for stepping in. This superb sports parents’ information site is run by Brooke de Lench, author of The Home Team Advantage: The Critical Role of Mothers in Youth Sports (HarperCollins).
