"Six podcasts without further. Ado Folks here's my conversation with Brian. Crookham we will see you next week. Nick Bruce Yeah no so let's Let's get started here if now still a good time to talk general thoughts on the current you say to the academy going into twenty twenty. Obviously now I'd say borderline pipeline with I think four out of the last five years signing a bunch of players and then obviously growth of the the academy and now you know a a second year and maybe some lessons learned on how that relationship with the city fax could be productive for both parties. Yeah I mean to us us. We do the academies in a really good place right now You know there's been a lot of public Talk about how young players are a centerpiece visa. How we want to build a club whether that be young players come out of our Kademi or promising young pros at a that are being bought in and our player transactions? And you know it's more than just stuff that's written in newspapers it's The organization is Kinda putting their money where the mouth is. And there's a real commitment from our ownership group To assist and in turn to get the academy up to effective staffing levels Obviously a big proponent and A the building of the academy and You know as house was Paul before that and in Tim Hinchey and a lot of guys in in the past that have had a vision for a long time for this to to to to really be a centerpiece that we build around. And and that's finally come into fruition and Over the last year we've added a fulltime academy director which kinda filled a gap that? When when I started to spend a lot more time in US oh About five years ago we didn't necessarily have somebody that could I'd spend time on all the little details that didn't have a team themselves and so to have a very talented Knowledgeable Academy Director Director and Chris Cartlidge. Come in and kind of be able to deal with the day to day details of of getting right for the players That are in our system has has been unbelievable beneficial and on top of that. We've added dedicated people in sports science and more resources and things like technology Video and in those pieces That really help us with the process. I think the academy itself is in a really good place and The you know the system itself with the kind of the progress that we've been able to make with a switch box relationship as well as in good shape so Pretty happy with where we are today. Excellent stuff I wanNA take a moment. You mentioned a lot of good staff in there who I've had communications with on the academy the Front and in general but Robin Frazier obviously coming in in his first full year with the rapids. And if I look at his past professional experiences not at his own fault but obviously the New York Red Bulls were very much in a win now moment there when he was there obviously spending big money on guys like Kay hill and then tear anri as well and I think in joining Toronto. FC where Greg Vanney had his roots Knee Academy that they've certainly produce a lot of really good players but then also had a lot of senior guys who took priority and maybe you you know both the rapids earn a better situation. Robin is in a situation to work with some of these young players. The academy kids even just the young centreback who the teams acquired in the last last season. You know what's Robbins approached the academy and how involved is he even in some of those conversations are just awareness of what some of the young prospects are doing. Well Robin Robin from early on. I mean clearly. His background Shows his interest in the player development side of things. And and as you mentioned you know he he's been been in situations where that successfully brought players through He one of the things that was very attractive about him. In the hiring process was is his Not only willingness but his his aptitude and bringing young players along and so Obviously the first couple of weeks weeks him getting in there were pretty hectic but quite frankly early on in that process we were able to sit down Not only with Robin myself myself and poorly. But we also had Allen College when he got hired as well as Chris Cartilage and some guys from the academy are under nineteen coaches says Marcella service and Everybody was able to sit down in the room. And you know talk about that planning At the same time and we're continually scheduling You know regular meetings for for that entire group talk about quite of all. WHO's coming through how we're GONNA come through? What and what are the gaps that we need to fill in what information needs to get to these young players to make sure that They can be integrated successfully. And you know that's showing not only at the end of last season While Robin was there and some of the postseason training but also in preseason and their number of young boys in preseason here we've got a bunch of USO preseason as well so You know he's he's one hundred percent Bought into the not only the ideology but also the process and and being a part of those conversations on a regular basis excellent. Soften I just I wanNA touch on one other thing and then we'll get a few of the other questions that I had for you in terms of bringing in some of the sports science guys obviously poor expend a big advocate of sports science analytics. And that has a number of different applications on the first team but how is either in that staff or own on its own academy front. Being applied lied whether it's sports science or nutrition. Obviously some of these kids are young enough to where the concept of recovery may be a little bit new to them just because their bodies. You're young enough that they don't have to deal with that and obviously nutrition can be a critical part for them even if right now. It's not a problem you know. If they're eating burgers cake every single day. Yeah yeah well it. It's gotta be a an entire approach to develop and the person that can be successful here and you know it's not just the the the Maybe the nutrition or physical or the technical part of some of the psychological pieces. And they've got to deal with as well and you know having a more complete not Player Education Plan that that addresses all those things specifically in sport science You know all of our academy kids kids from fifteen Basically post maturation or all on GPS every day we're monitoring workloads And making sure that we get right right and that's really important because we now have guys that are balancing they may do a session with the academy especially USSL team obsession with the first team and Klay Amac's somewhere in there during the week and trying to get the workloads right for guys who are still physically developing is just as important as it is for for a professional It's it's been in a game for a long time and and I would say that it's also important. You know that would go those habits with the young ones as well even are twelve and thirteen and fourteen because they to have to deal with you know as they go through much ration- things like CIBA's and Osgood slaughters and things of that starts to tug on tendons and and You know so so. Managing the loads managing the nutrition managing you know basically their schedules that allow them appropriately covering it was one of the biggest things that we had to fight coming into. The game was the concept that you gotTa do more all the time to Get better and what we find is a lot of our academy. Kids will get almost a month off during the holidays and he'll come back they were grown They will have you know their bodies. He's all of a sudden say. Hey this is the time to to kind of blossom here so you know we're very conscious of that from from every aspect and the least on on how they're able to handle those stress levels even psychologically good stuff I had a number. I've had a couple conversations going back to about a year ago with Pork and a few other staff who kind of expressed that the last couple of years have been really fruitful in terms of you know signing Sebastian Anderson at the beginning of last season Zain then Cole and Sam I think court was maybe the year before that so you know four out of four years and that maybe the current crop right now just need a little bit more time and you know it's not necessarily a bad thing. Obviously you know. I think those four guys were signed to the first team and introduced when they were ready and maybe some players just need that full time. I'm with the or maybe even beyond that or the opportunity to go to college and there could be some personal educational family decisions that are brought in there. But can you just speak to. Maybe that generational racial variation and how you kind of plan and manage that given that some guys mature at different age and some just maybe need a little bit more time. Either biologically or tactically exactly. Yeah I mean every single player that Kinda fallen that high potential category is going to mature differently as it relates to the game but physically. Psychologically all that and you know if you look at Bassett Anderson. Even Abe Rodriguez those guys that are still still eligible for our academy. So you know we talk about maybe having a little bit of low in homegrown signings over the next year so basically this because we've already signed guys out of those classes as well. You know we. We've got a couple of two thousand two's Anderson and Rodriguez that have already signed pro contracts. Obviously aid side with the switch box last last year and Sebastian With our first team Bassett's two thousand one so we're talking about young guys that are that are still academy eligible throw Hundley the and vines and guys that are just aged out in the last year or two There's a lot of players that have been been part of that and you know I think when you look at that maturation process There will be guys that all of a sudden take-off they maybe they've physically physically matured and now they're just in a great place to to be able to handle some of the physical demands of it. Maybe they have grown up a little bit and psychologically logically. They're able to handle it and they see a game fast all of a sudden and they can You know they can deal with the with the decision making demands demands of the professional game and being around professional players. So you know again. It's it's so individual and their development plans then build around the things strengths that also you know highlights and things it was like we can make a difference to move them down that path and everybody's GonNa react differently data that and You know as we go The time line is very rarely a time line. We're just give them chunks that they can it off and chew on in when a good will get motivate more exelon stuff Speaking of that point in terms of bringing kids on and you know introducing the concept of the first team whether it's training or actually signing with them and maybe they need to go down the US L. or something else. I had a really good conversation with Kohl Bassett. Maybe four or five months ago and he kind of expressed that you know once it was coming into twenty nineteen. He wanted to be just one of the guys. He didn't want any special treatment. He don't want anybody buddy patting himself on the back because he was the youngest homegrown and this that and the other thing you know maybe seven Anderson coming in and breaking a lot of his records kind of help with that from Humility standpoint but can you kind of speak to on one end of the string. You maybe have the treatment that ultimately led to Freddy Adu and where he is at one place and maybe maybe the ways that the New York Red Bulls dealt with Tyler Adams to prepare him for where he's at right now. We're kind of on two ends in terms of hyping. The kid up up giving him some confidence giving him the pat on the back or maybe being a little bit hard on him and maybe this is maybe more of.

"It was because USA swimming believed the coaches contention that the relationship was consensual, and I just want to say it's not possible to have a truly consensual relationship. Given the power dynamics. And the fact that coaches literally hold the key to an athlete's Olympic dream and their future. So I understand that USA swimming now banned such so-called consensual relationships. But given that will you commit to revisiting the previous complaints of athletes who said they were sexually abused relationship. The coach claims was consensual. Absolutely. This is my top priority. Since I've been at USA swimming will continue to do that. There's nothing more important than the safety of our athletes at the same time. We will also need to be working in conjunction with any new complaints. Because those are the center for safe sports. So again will need to be working together in order for us to to make it happen that I'm certainly more than welcome to meet with any survivor. No CEO, Tim Hinchey just. The request is really for a commitment to revisit those cases where consideration of coaches out position. It was consensual kept the coach from being banned. So I look forward to continue to hear more about that. I see that the chair and ranking member are back. I just wanted to close Mr Andrews, I appreciated your saying that it is possible to win and still keep athletes safe. And obviously, the two are not mutually exclusive. But obviously an athlete's autonomy in safety comes first. And I think it's really important in this day and age that we acknowledge we can do both state. You very much. Senator hasn't. Thank you, very much Senator Jerry Moran subcommittee chair live from Capitol Hill. Ask a couple of questions, and then we'll turn to the ranking member. One of the things I'm told I should be concerned about is with us center for safe sports. And it's beginning to be up and running in the sense that there is a slowness in the response. And I would like to know whether that's true. And what your experience has been. It's important for victims for survivors to have the reality as well. As the impression that they are being listened to. And that's one of the things we've heard from those survivors in numerous conversations is it was as if no one cared. So if we're going to create a culture in which athletes feel comfortable in reporting in this case to the US center for six sports, they need to know, there's a prompt and real interest in their wellbeing. Their story can be told and actions will follow. What's the what's the experience that you've had in the timeliness of US center for safe sports responding to your athletes, or would you not know that because only the athletes? Oh that. That there are some for which we wouldn't know because the report is made directly to the center, but I would say that your comments are accurate. The center is being overwhelmed with the volume of investigations as being required to carry out. And as a result does require more support from all of us. Financially a non financially to both improve its processes and critically. It's timelines and the case for emotional, physical abuse complaints. They're still dealt with the national governing body level. And a certainly I want to be dealt with more quickly because simply were less overwhelmed than the center is time. Anyone miss Cameroon? We're ready to speak. My question would be is that the experience or anyone have any specifics in which they can provide today for our our hearing record miss Canada. We don't have specifics. I mean, similar to Mr Andrews with weightlifting, we sometimes make the the complaint for someone or where we can tell something's going on. Because we've been asking if someone is a member but bottom line it does take a while. And again, I think it's because they're overwhelmed. Anyone else? As reason last week in our United States aquatic convention in Jacksonville, sat in her safe sport committee meeting, and we heard loud and clear that the response of this has taken too long and they're concerned because they're not getting any calls back, regardless of what the complaint is Tim Hinchey. That's a that's a useful thing to know. I mean, a number of you have testified about getting additional taxpayer resources you indicate that they're overwhelmed overwhelmed for lack of. I understand there's a volume and complaints, but overwhelmed because of process and procedure or overwhelmed because they're just not enough people to do the work or both. I would say this degree of both. They're still new. They're still learning. And if you look at the history of the US anti doping agency now recognizes the gold standard around the world they suffer from similar issues at the start of their life. We have a Pacific issue for Moran. We had a sexual harassment of a child complain, which we heard nothing for several months from the center resulting taking lost measure against that individuals national governing body, but I do believe it's both of the items that you said, it's a both need to employees more investigators to ensure that the time is reduced and also expertise additional expertise to continue to improve their processes as they become a more mature organization, Phil Andrews, USA weightlifting sort of say processes, what are the process? We could have. Is. Just the acknowledgement of the complaint of something being filed. So that again, there's knowledge that someone's paying attention. Let me ask this question. A number of you indicated the importance of the support from maybe you in particular, Mr. Steele, financial support from the USOC. Describe to me. I mean, all all four of you, all of you have different resources different magnitude of of your programs. What is it that the US Olympic Committee does for you financially by that? I mean, what kind of dollars? Are we talking about? Depends on the year of the the quad. Because the percentage does does change, but I would say on average probably sixty five sometimes up to seventy percent of the total revenue that comes in is from the USOC. And we're talking about roughly. Two millionaire, and those are those numbers you indicated they change from year to year. But do they Chevy change as a result of the? New attention focused on sexual abuse is there's you're talking about money that is utilized across the board. Not just related to this issue. This two million dollars. That's money that supports your governing body broadly. It's very specific to athlete programming. Okay. That is the only thing that's used for. So what does that mean? That means coaches taking care of the team traveling around the world fielding teams buying equipment. It has to be related to a sports program for the athletes, and has that increased as a result of an effort by the USOC to deal with the issue that that's the topic of this. I don't believe so anyone else. I would echo Darren statement. We get about fifteen percent as direct athlete funding to our national team athletes. So they have a chance to live and compete at the highest levels. It's not for this initiative or two point seven percent and again hasn't increased due to this initiative. Okay. Thank you, sir. Blumenthal is recognized. Thank you. I have another meeting. So I'm going to have to depart fairly soon. But I want to ask a few questions here. First of all do any of you. Use what are called flagged lists? There was an AP report in two thousand ten that USA swimming has a secret in quotes flag list. In addition to the public banned list, do any of your organization. Use a flag flag list. In addition to the banned list. We don't call it a flag list for those that have a criminal charge that we've become the that we get to know about then we certainly would flag their entry to membership request for membership. And we would deny that membership at headquarters. Others have the same practice. No. We don't have that practice. And then also we do the background checks on all coaches. It's required and people that are in a position of power. And so anything would be flagged. They are two and Cam it with USA figure skating, so you're right. Practicies Mr. Hinchey that you use the flag list relating to charges but abandoned who convictions that correct? Kittery state your question. Sorry. I'm sorry. Could you repeat your question? Sorry you use the flag list to include individuals who've been charged. So if there are currently not a member of our organization, and they have a criminal charge. Then we will denote that. So that if there is a request for membership. We can deny that. And you ban. Individuals who are conducted at the distinction anyone that has been a member I go through the process of hearing or gets convicted then we would ban them at that point. Have you taken action against norm have across one of the individuals whom he sexually abused? Jhansi? Thomas Johnson is in the audience today. I'm not familiar with that case prior to my arrival to USA swimming. But I know that he's not a member of USA swimming, could you verify whether he has been banned. Not to my knowledge. What about Paul Bergen? He's a swimming coach who is not banned. Apparently. But glad to be on the flag list and who allege allegedly sexually abused Olympic swimmer. Dina Deirdre beginning when she was eleven years old. I'm not familiar with that could you get back to me about this evening. Mr steele. My office has been told that a female athlete on the USA bobsled and skeleton team was exposed to the sexually explicit content. Are the mail coaches, photographs or other material subsequently other athletes were exposed to? Could you tell me whether you were informed by the United States Olympic committee Representative these sexually explicit content incident. Was not informed by the USO see about this. But I did hear about this. That was. Basically what you just said occurred. So immediately. Started asking questions to find out what happened. Disciplinary action taken. To the extent of a of a warning. It was a warning about. Procedure the situation. Was it wasn't as. As I been described. More than one person is my understanding. Yes. Because multiple athletes had the electronic device that had access to those those images. So the procedures worked or not. The private athlete complaint procedures. Yeah, they worked. It was. It was dealt with no action was taken. No. Because of the circumstances. Other other than I don't have time to completely explore all the details. But I'd appreciate it written account. I will provide that thank you. Would anyone here oppose establishing a inspector general within the US Olympic Committee? No, I'd encourage it. Well, let me ask the question different way. Would you? In fact, encourage it. Absolutely. Yes. Yes. Thank you. Would you encourage establishing an athlete advocate within the US Olympic Committee? And would you voluntarily commit to increasing athlete representation to a majority on your boards and committees to ensure their voices and concerns are heard. Which I can't be too. I'd be happy to do that. I think we'd want to research. So that it's not the majority we could increase the minority. But well, it's twenty percent now asking that you commit to increasing it to a majority we would not be able to do that at this time majority. Why? I think part of the what you have to look at and this is some of my opinion. But also the. Learning and life experiences that come with developing as from young person to an adult and Kenneth. People that skated at a high level that are involved in that administration, but they've timed out for the ten year maximum, and I think you need a good balance you need that life. Experience the.

"Thank you all very much, and we'll start the questioning with Senator Cortez maskco. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you offer for being here. I know this is the fourth hearing. And I so appreciate the chair and ranking member and and continuing down this important discussion. And Mr. I want to thank you for sitting down with me yesterday and talking with me. So the question I want to start for the panel. That I have is to what extent are you personally and end your leadership in staff, actively engaging with both the athletes advisory council as well as victims of sexual abuse to help direct your programming to stamp out the culture of abuse that has enabled what we have seen these predators to target athletes. Can you talk a little bit about what you're doing individually or within your organization? Let's start this. Go down, Mr Andrews plays. We thank you Senator. We have tried to create a culture since two thousand sixteen of really putting athletes at the heart of everything we do ultimately Africa who we serve first and foremost, they're the people who step on the platform left the heavyweights in all case, literally. To your question. We have on our board, our athlete USOC athlete. Advisory council. Representative who has an alternate. We have a second athlete on all board. We also have in common move. I suspect every national governing body on own athlete advisory council, which we worked with directly as I mentioned in my opening remarks that as the body that actually has the final approval as a whole on our so I can procedures for example. To your point. I mentioned in my opening remarks specific actions that we've taken as a result of the feedback all victims of abuse, not just in all sports, but in others. Plus, I myself personally as my staff available. By phone Email and at events, so let me let me make it a little easier because I appreciate that. And more specific because I this is an area worked in. Now, we need to change the culture, and we need experts to come in and help normally I do I think we all do we're trying to address this issue. So what are you doing in general to change this culture? What have you put in place who have you what experts have you relied upon to come in to help with education to help with training to help with understanding how we change this culture. Is there anybody that you've reached out to you in the professional field to address this issue? And I've only got five minutes I'm going to ask if you don't have anything like that. But just please say so so then we can move on. No. Our our biggest experts on athletes are athletes. Okay. Thank you. Thank you. I appreciate the direction. What we have done is in the fall last year. We hired a say spot council who is in taking all the information and has that expertise. We currently are looking for another position to hire. Which will address the civically education and training are a is very involved. Mark Ladwig are a chair is here today with us, and we really have engaged our athletes to speak up and have a voice, we have a new campaign, if you will called your voice, and it's educating it's the better known skaters more public facing to come into communities and work with children in that community to to help them understand that they do have a voice, and they can speak up. So and then we've also worked on education and training, and after speaking to survivors, so we could make it more focused. Okay. Thanking Mr. Angie. We have several different. We last six months or so we've had an opportunity several different groups of national team athletes that are trained center. So he invited them to lunch to speak to them directly getting their feedback and asking for them what they need more from us and how we can further. Engage. We are a large organization that has three thousand clubs. So are safe sport department has an ability to get out to as many zone meetings regional meetings or invite ourselves to talk about curriculum engages athletes. Most recently, we started a first settler athlete leadership conference last April in Houston that I attended I spoke to these athletes these athletes are the thirteen to seventeen year olds that are not necessarily going to be Olympic ethics, but those that are at their local clubs that have an opportunity to influence a greater number than we can't of their teammates. We've met with them and talk to them from a content perspective, we've taken some criticism based on meeting with some survivors on our content. So we've called distribution we've hired presidium to come in and audit that fully we look forward to having that content improved and listening to the athletes on the best. Possible methods to distribute that and even last week at our convention, we met with some of our safe sport fellows, which again, local club athletes, and they were very critical of the fact that we're not helping them with the right tools and specifically with social media communication. So that'll be the next expertise we hire outside. Thank you. Tim Hinchey with USA swimming. We also have AC members are part of the board. We have regular communication with them. Getting feedback in the athletes is one of the most important things in identifying maybe some unknown issues that they're out there. And so that's one of the things that that we do pretty much an annual basis. It's best post-season survey for the athletes, and they're very candid about what they're happy about what they're not happy about. In addition to that are doing culture training with the entire organization. It's not necessarily related to safe safe sports because that isn't the primary issue or an issue that we've experienced really in quite a while. But. The training's important, and that involves engaging with the athletes and finding out what what gaps they see? So people academy is the group that we're working with on that. And. That's pretty much it. Thank Darren steel with USA bobsled and skeleton nightime said, thank you. Thank you. Thank all of you for being here today. And thank you for working to act, the safe sport, others Asian act and sexual abuse and six for authorization exit. We passed here in the congress. Senator Shelley Moore Capito the athletes in front of us two panels ago. I believe the question I asked was kind of surprised at the answer that I got. Realizing the Israeli athletes at the top of their sport. And at the same time young still formulating mind at the same time. So I asked him about mental health and sports psychologist, and I was surprised that none of them as I recall expressed the accessibility to any kind of mental health, professional or sports counseling. Because a lot of sports, obviously, there's a very big mental aspect to it as well. So I'm interested in knowing. I'll start with you miss Kamat at at figure skating how the engine is a maintaining mental health options for the young athletes, and are you providing those or is or how is that being provided for your wear that there is any kind of professional are they aware of it? Or is there something like that? Thank you. Yes. We do provide it for our lead athletes, and they're made aware of it. We have what's called an international selection pool, which is top athletes from which we draw are the kids that we send the athletes we send internationally, and we then have team USA once you get to travel. So those individuals that are on our I s p they have these services available to them. Are they using them or do, you know, they are using them? And especially when we get to the Olympic level. We definitely have ongoing. Providers that we use. Sometimes what happens is they they start with while. They're in Colorado Springs, their meet with USOC. Psychologists or mental health service provider. And then when they go back to their home. They we follow up and make sure that there's a provider there. But even right after I became president. There was a request for it until I got to see firsthand what we do. But we take it very seriously. Because as you mentioned, it's a huge component. When you get to the elite level does anybody else? Want to comment, Mr. Hinchey? Yes. Our swimming. Our national team services director who manages are currently sixty athletes international team program is in contact with them individually and collectively about resources that we have to provide mental health care. In addition to other medical services. Sports medicine directors as well as interacting with medical services people deal Olympic training center, as well as other places that we travel so we try to travel with somebody that has the ability to support that we have a sports psychologist also travels with us to our most important of Olympic gold medal or gold level meets which are international. But it is something we're hearing a lot from some of our most famous athletes and current national team. And it's something that our national director wants to do more. Yeah. Yeah. I just saw actually billboard with Michael Phelps talking about mental health, and I see it too as an ass not just to help them meet reach maximum performance. But also if there is a situation where a coach or a trusted individual in their life is abusing them in any way that is another outlet for that person in the privacy of a medical professional to to be able to speak more freely and more openly. So I'm glad to know that that is going on the other question, I asked was about their medical records. Obviously this involved the doctor in Michigan. It didn't seem it seemed that they're again, there was a lot of I don't really know where my medical records. Aren't he gave me prescriptions? I don't know who kept track of all this what kind of things. Are you all doing to make sure do you all have? Access to medical records. Or is that kept within the privacy, the individual athletes and guardians have access to this one? It's necessary. How how do you work those kinds of? Privacy issues along with. Oversight issues. Anybody want to start with that this is air of C span radio programming from Wednesday. Yeah. I can we does Gators in our situation are trained individually, they decide who their coach should be and things like that. So they're distributed with throughout the country. And so they have their own personal care provider your regular doctor. They would see or if they're training perhaps in Colorado Springs, and they would have a provider they are as officials and as president of US figure skating, I do not have access to those records. They're hippo. We do have a centralized. We have people that are I should say are. Can have that knowledge when we're deciding to send out athletes because athletes do agree when they're going to travel that they are healthy. So that address your question it does it does. I just think that as we as anybody knows if you're if you have your own home provider, and let's say you're over in Europe competing with your team. And you're a young man or woman, and you have a headache or something. Or you've hurt yourself? You're administered some kind of prescription medication. You can see how the records could maybe not jive as happens in regular. Regular medical care as well. Even if you're staying in the same community, you might go to a specialist in the general practitioner and all this getting your records centralized I think is important to better health care. But also to more transparency where young athletes might be more..

"And Michigan State University provide testimony and answer questions as to how the rampant abuse by Dr Nassar. Was able to perpetuate for as long as it did Scott Blackmun, the former president of the US Olympic Committee and Martha Corolla the former national team coordinator for USA gymnastics were invited to attend but declined for medical reasons. Critical topics were covered in that hearing, including USA gymnastics, USA gymnastics, mix mishandling of critical medical records failed communications to and within Michigan State University related to sexual abuse reports against their employees and most important to complete lack of cooperation demonstrated by Mr. penny in his refusal to answer questions in the third hearing. We heard from current leaders of the same trouble organizations regarding which aspects of their system and culture had changed and how they plan to implement serious reforms moving forward. Specifically, we're joined by Mr John Engler interim president Michigan State University. Ms Susanne lions acting CEO of the US Olympic Committee. Miss miscarry Perry recently, the former president and CEO of USA gymnastics, and Mr. Han Zao, chairman of the US Olympic Committee athletes advisory council, I appreciated their updates and hearing and continue to monitor the work that they're doing to empower amateur athletes and prevent abuse. It is my belief that hearing from a variety of national governing bodies of different sizes resources and challenges is necessary to make policy recommendations as we move forward. As such joining us today as Mr. Phil Andrews, the CEO of USA weightlifting mister net Kamat president of USA figure skating, Mr. Tim, Hinchey, the third president and CEO of USA swimming, and Mr. Darren Steele, CEO of USA bobsled and skeleton. We have also received written testimony and expect responses to questions for Mr. Steve McNally, the executive executive director of USA taekwondo, I will conclude. My opening remarks by reiterating the bipartisan approach that this subcommittee has taken its comprehensive investigation. We're in consultation with law enforcement with survivors and advocates we've worked closely together to define meaningful reforms in the best interest of athletes and their families without I will return to the ranking member center Blumenthal for his opening statement, Senator Jerry Moran is a subcommittee chair live coverage and I to have an apology, which is I think at three fifteen we're going to have a vote. So we'll have to interrupt at that point true. But I'm glad that we're beginning. And I wanna thank everyone for being here. Witnesses and most especially this courageous and strong survivors who are with us in hearing room. I am grateful to Senator Moran for his leadership and our partnership in these hearings and this effort to really achieve systemic change. Not. Yes, awareness, but real change. And I want to join in thanking chairman thune and ranking member Nelson for their support in this effort, the survivors are really the heroes here their profiles encourage that. Inspire us to move forward. In the last couple of weeks. We've seen many come forward and demonstrate the bravery. It has taken for. Men and women to brave the nightmare of public shaming and character assassination and threats potential retaliation all of the deterrence that 'cause only a fraction of the survivors to report sexual abuse. So my thanks to them again. And we will be thanking you repeatedly. I am sure. But let's remember that Larry Nassar's image in an orange jumpsuit. Followed years literally years when his crimes were disregarded or Nord. Predators succeed with their crimes because they are skilled at grooming. And they are masters of deception monsters are often hiding in plain sight. And they are often aided and abetted by people who turn the other way. Who fail to report or take action in the face of his criminal action? I have lengthy remarks which I'm going to put in a record. But I want to say that today we're going to hear from leadership at NGDC's, some large and other small winter summer outdoor and indoor team and individual emphasizing that the predatory crimes here go well beyond just gymnastics at his point number one. President here today are heads of the national team for swimming figure skating weightlifting bobsled and skeleton some of the engineers have to answer for their own troubling malfeasance in resolving sexual misconduct..
