    The United States Olympic Committee moved to decertify
    U.S.A. Gymnastics on Monday.
    The move, which comes after years of complaints about the national governing body’s handling of sexual assault complaints, is considered the nuclear option for the U.S.O.C. It essentially allows for the national committee to take over the operations of the individual sport’s governing body, especially the
    high performance team, which will be under the management of the U.S.O.C. for the foreseeable future.
    “This is a situation in which there are no perfect solutions,” Sarah Hirshland, the U.S.O.C.’s chief executive, said in a statement. “Seeking to revoke recognition is not a conclusion that we have come
    to easily. In the short-term, we have to work to ensure that U.S.A.G. gymnasts have the support necessary to excel on and off the field of play. We are building plans to do just that. In the long-term, it will be the critically important responsibility of the recognized Gymnastics NGB, whether the existing organization or a new one, to lead gymnastics in the United States and build on the supportive community of athletes and clubs that can carry the sport forward for decades to come. We are prepared to identify and help build such an organization.”

    Good. They didnt just look the other way, they actively covered for Nasser. The C suite is lucky they aren't going to jail
