USOC To Form Outside Agency To Address Misconduct Issues

The USOC today is expected to announce the formation of an outside agency "aimed at addressing sexual and physical misconduct in sport," titled the SafeSport Working Group on Investigation, Adjudication & Sanctions. This comes after U.S. Speedskating reached a settlement with a group of athletes who said that they were "physically and emotionally abused by a former head coach." There have been allegations of sexual abuse in swimming and other sports (USA TODAY, 7/30).
