    How tragic is it that it went on for so long, and the girls thought that was just the way it was! The #metoo movement is so overdue.

    Uh, I think the Karolyi's are at high risk here, and likely laying very low, talking only to lawyers.

    That's not the entire article....

    Let's put those pieces together ó and understand why Nassar's trial should be just the start of the investigation and not an end. His years of criminal sexual assaults on gymnasts could have happened only with the assistance of U.S. sports officials and coaches, such as Martha and Bela Karolyi and John Geddert, who let Nassar violate basic medical norms on their watch. It could have happened only because they were willfully blind to his "pelvic adjustments" on young women athletes, for which there was no good reason. It could have happened only because they failed to exercise the most basic, common, fundamental good sense in protecting children, allowing him to probe girls ungloved and sequester himself with them without any nurse present. Here is how negligent they were: The girls were required to see him in their hotel and dorm rooms at night. Alone. On their beds.

    Gymnastics was very important to my daughter but some of the other athletes and a couple coaches have been very damaging to her and the damage may never be fully repaired. Gymnastics is still a major part of how she sees herself despite the seeminly unnecessary difficulties.

    A daughter of a friend of mine was allegedly treated sexually inappropriately by her college volleyball coach to force her to transfer. Do not know the details and that happened a couple of decades ago.

    Later add-on.

    The facts that Nassar was a physician rather than a coach bothers me the most.
