    A longtime and prominent track coach and former Olympian was arrested in Los Angeles on Wednesday and charged with one felony count of sexual battery by fraud for allegedly molesting one of his former athletes. The arrest reportedly comes as the result of an Outside The Lines investigation that detailed allegations against coach Conrad Avondale Mainwaring made by 31 different men, stretching as far back as the mid-1970s.
    Another report on the same story mentions that he was reported to police in several cases but never arrested.

    A couple of prominent names within "who he's coached".

    as a guy who hurdles 15.54 and 54.67 in Montréal, he's hardly worth the descriptor of "Olympian"

    ps--you're never a "former Olympian"; you is or you ain't.

    But relevant in this case because I am sure he leveraged the "Olympian" bit to help him get jobs in and out of the coaching world.

    He was on my radar, but there I couldn't think of anything else to do. He does not appear to have ever been a USATF member, so he would not fall under the jurisdiction of SafeSport.

    Here are some of the links that were out there previously. He was rumored to have been banned from the UCLA track a few years ago.

    I have come across the name Conrad Mainwaring in reports and results of club athletics in the UK from the 1970s. One of PVP's links includes an allegation of abuse from Leicester. It refers to Saffron Lane which is where the city's track is.

    No reason why you should have heard of him.

    He was pretty well known in the local area. Not well known nationally.
