"And it's time for three stories. You should know the US Olympic Committee is moving toward decertifying, USA gymnastics. That's where we're going to start this. This week, and I'm joined by Lindsey Gibbs of think progress. Welcome back Lindsey, thanks for having me. And by only games own Karen, given Hello, Karen. Hi, Craig, Lindsay Europe. As Craig just mentioned this week. The US Olympic Committee finally announced that it was going to decertify USA gymnastics, which means it's taking steps to remove it as a governing body of the sport Sarah Herschel, and the CEO of the US see told all the members of gymnastics community, you deserve better. This is a step that survivors of sexual abuse by former Olympic Dr Larry Nassar have been calling for for years. It is well well overdue. So you might be asking why? Now, let's just say the turmoil. USA gymnastics just keeps turning up a notch about three weeks ago they hired. Interim CEO Mary Bono. This was three weeks after firing their former President Mary Bono lasted four days on the job. After her announcement came out that she tweeted, very anti Nike things. It also came out that she had worked for the law firm that it helped USA gymnastics cover up Larry Nassar's abuse, the New York Times just reported that just last week USA gymnastics miraculously found a bunch of documents that people had been searching for for two years. They just happen to kind of show up in the Indianapolis office. These were under the couch. So the Olympic Committee has gotten a lot of praise for this. But it just seems like it's for such strange reasons to me and not because hundreds of people thousands even were abused. It's mainly because of their incompetence that the us OC is taking over what a reason Karen, what do you make of this? I really I mean, I agree that this is long long overdue. But I gotta say when Sarah her Sean said, you deserve better to the athletes. My initial response was you do you deserve better than the USO. See, you know, like keep in mind that this organization's role in the Nassar cover up is still being investigated. And at the very very least the US see new in two thousand fifteen that Nasser was being accused of abuse abuse continued for a year in that year. Forty women were abused. And this is the organization who's taking over to clean it all up. This doesn't seem like it's. Really going to work, especially since it's not just USA gymnastics that this happened in its USA, swimming, USA taekwondo. So I don't know that I really trust the USOC to take on this task captain Renaud is going to clean up the gambling in this establishment. It definitely seems like a bad idea. But I don't know that we have better ideas. And the one thing that I've heard in response to all of this is well what's going to happen to the gymnastics team? What's going to happen to our standing internationally? And my response to that is who cares. That's the sports end of it. And I think the athletes have shown that they are far more responsible and far more resilient than anyone in charge of this mess over time. We're going to have wonderful gymnast again because we always seem to produce them. And they're going to find a place to be the real issue is finding a safe place for them to be a competent place for them to be. So I don't care if this sets us back quite a bit for a little while we got to fix this stuff. Plus, we're still winning. We still have Simone biles. So we'll be fine. I think you know, I just think it's so important to remember that the UC is not the heroes of the story is Karen beside, you know, it's the survivors. It's these athletes survivors who've spoken out and continue to demand accountability. They're the ones who got this done. It is an important step. It should not be the. Final step this week. I'm going to talk about something a little less fraught than that. I'm gonna talk about old guys talking about baseball, which is which is always full of all kinds of nastiness in idiocy..

And he hopes that after the election people will find a way to come together. Kelsey Snell, NPR news, homestead Florida. There's been a major development in the world of Olympic sports. The US Olympic Committee has moved to decertify, USA gymnastics. The sports governing body this so-called nuclear option comes after a widening sexual abuse scandal involving athlete. Seats and a former team doctor in announcing the decision. The head of the Olympic Committee said today that the sport deserves better Alexandra Starr has been regularly reporting on USA gymnastics for NPR and she joins us now. Welcome. Thank you. Good to be here. So why did the USOC ultimately decide decertifying USA gymnastics was it's only option at this point. The organization has been in a freefall since last year when the former team doctor Larry Nassar was sentenced to the equivalent of life in prison for molesting hundreds of athletes over the course of decades, and in the last twenty months, the organization has cycled through three leaders one of whom Steve penny was arrested last month for allegedly tampering into the investigation into Nassar. So it's just been kind of a big dumpster fire for a while. And he's exactly what is USA gymnastics. I mean, it's the governing body of the sport. But what does that mean, they select the athletes who serve on the national team? So that's a very important role. They developed marketing plans and strike sponsorship deals another big deal. They also work to decide like which clubs are members. So all of those are legitimate important roles and for the last year and a half. It's basically been leaderless. I mean, they've just gone through scandal after scandal, and they can't seem to find their footing. So what is this decertification mean for gymnasts across the country? How they individually feel this as they're going to practice trying to train. I think there's a big difference between USA gymnastics and the female team, which is extraordinary. There was just the world champions chips. Just right. This week Simone biles won a record four gold medal. Wow. She's extraordinary. So in a sense, the paradox here is that the female team has really never been stronger and at the same time, the national governing body just can't get it together. I would argue that the example of these women has kind of allowed the organization to coast by and we'll see now if the leadership becomes more or less commensurate with a team that they're supposed to be fronting and representing now how temporary is this. The US Olympic Committee taking over is it just until a brand new governing body can be formed and put into place, or is this kind of the way it will be for indefinitely. There was this is this happens, very rarely. But the US Olympic Committee did take over a USA taekwondo and that so-called receivership they were on probation for about two years. I don't know if the same thing will repeat in this circumstance, but it could be a while. And the fact that they're resorting to this just shows how bad things were because they do not do this often. I was gonna say like how unprecedented is this to see the governing body of the sport be decertified. It's happened four times. But it's happened to organizations. This is just the fourth time that it's happened. It's happened to organizations like USA handball and USA taekwondo. Honestly, those sports do not have big followings for this to happen to like such a star sport. Lightning nasty is a very big deal. That's reporter Alexandra Starr, thank you very much. Thank you. You're listening to all things considered from NPR news next up on the program. They will check in with some of the so-called, hotly. Contested gubernatorial races going on in the mid western portion of our country. More of all things considered.

There was this is this happens, very rarely. But the US Olympic Committee did take over USA taekwondo and that so-called receivership they were on probation for about two years. I don't know if the same thing will repeat in this circumstance, but it could be a while. And the fact that they're resorting to this just shows how bad things were because they do not do this often. I was gonna ask you like how unprecedented is this to see the governing body of a sport be decertified? It's happened four times. But it's happened to organizations. This is just the fourth time that it's happened. It's happened to organizations like USA handball and USA taekwondo. Honestly, those sports do not have big followings for this to happen. To like such a star sport likes him Nastase is a very big deal. That's reporter Alexandra Starr, thank you very much. Thank you. You're listening to all things considered on WNYC, hotly. Contested gubernatorial races in the mid west are testing, whether President Trump's two thousand sixteen win in states like Ohio, Michigan and Wisconsin represent a lasting shift or a blip. We'll visit those contests.
