Paedophilia in sports
OK, not directly about sports but related to it.

There have been big revelations, with literally hundreds of reported vuctims, regarding paedophile coaches and instructors in youth football (soccer) in the UK. It is an obvious opportunity in hindsight - lots of naked kids in the showers, a bit of "massage" here or there, special training sessions . . .

They are now looking into others sports for similar activity

But, it seems that this is actually an old story resurrected, probably, due to the recent rush of other paedophile activity amongst well known people.

Could be 20 odd years old:

Anything like this anywhere else?

Tomorrow is precious, don't ruin it by fouling up today.

RE: Paedophilia in sports
Girls/women's gymnastics has had a male coach accused of sex abuse and I think there was also an olympic team USA gymnastic doctor that was abusing girls. Just in the city I live in I've read about a couple of high school girls volleyball coaches being fired for sex abuse.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Dr. Larry Nassar? Yeah, he seems creepy. Never met him, but did go to an MSU meet once when I lived in PA. I knew a former assistant coach there (who is now an associate head coach at Iowa State).

Gymnastics is a weird one. I like the sport a lot. But at the olympic level, there are lots of minors. Still, it's a sport I can't begin to do!
