difference.It sure looked like it, he said.

USA Gymnastics, the organization that develops the Olympic team, repeatedly failed to report allegations of sexual abuse of underage gymnasts by coaches to authorities, according to an investigative report by the Indianapolis Star?that was posted on Thursday. Mens Under Armour Scorpio Running Shoes .The organization, which boasts over 120,000 gymnasts at 3,000 gyms, had a policy of dismissing allegations as hearsay and filing them away unless they came directly from a victim or a victims parents, the report said. Two former USA Gymnastics executives testified under oath to this policy as part of a 2013 lawsuit filed by a coachs victim.Legally, however, suspected child abuse must be reported to authorities.The 2013 lawsuit, filed in Georgia by the daughter of Lisa Ganser, involves a coach named William McCabe. According to the Star, USA Gymnastics was alerted to the possibility that McCabe was abusing children as far back as 1998. An owner of a gym from which he was fired sent a letter to USA Gymnastics saying that McCabe should be locked in a cage before someone is raped.In court filings obtained the Star, USA Gymnastics said allegations made against McCabe by two gym owners were third-hand hearsay and said the organization had not received a complaint from a member athlete or parent of a member athlete.USA Gymnastics also argued, according to the Star, that mandatory reporting laws did not apply to it because it was an organization, not an individual.According to the Star, Ganser enrolled her daughter in a McCabe-run gym in 2002 and, more than a year later, received an anonymous packet with allegations against McCabe, including complaints that had been sent to USA Gymnastics. She contacted USA Gymnastics and was told there were no complaints against McCabe, according to the newspaper.In 2006, Ganser found disturbing emails on her then-11-year-old daughters computer. She called the FBI. Investigators learned that the emails had been sent by McCabe, who was pretending to be an Olympic star, the newspaper reported.McCabe was eventually accused of molesting girls as young as fifth-graders. He pleaded guilty in 2006 to sexual exploitation of children and is serving a 30-year sentence.Although USA Gymnastics would not reveal just how many complaints it receives, the Star reported that the organization had compiled dossiers on more than 50 coaches. The contents of those files remain sealed as part of the Ganser case, but the Star has filed a motion asking to make them public. The newspaper did uncover details of four coaches, including McCabe, who were charged with child molestation or sexual exploitation.One coach, Marvin Sharp, was reported to authorities by USA Gymnastics four years after it received a detailed complaint against him, according to the Star. The former coach of the year, who had mentored multiple Olympians, was charged in federal court and then committed suicide in jail.USA Gymnastics issued a statement on Thursday responding to the Stars report.Addressing issues of sexual misconduct has been important to USA Gymnastics for many years, and the organization is committed to promoting a safe environment for its athletes, it said, in part. We find it appalling that anyone would exploit a young athlete or child in this manner, and recognize the effect this behavior can have on a persons life. USA Gymnastics has been proactive in helping to educate the gymnastics community over the years, and will continue to take every punitive action available within our jurisdiction, and cooperate fully with law enforcement.The statement concluded:?With the judge considering whether to dismiss the pending lawsuit in Georgia, there are limits on what the organization can say publicly during litigation. Nonetheless, USA Gymnastics provided the Indianapolis Star with substantial information on its policies and procedures to demonstrate the organizations commitment to the safety of its athletes within the scope of its jurisdiction and governance structure. We feel the Star left out significant facts that would have painted a more accurate picture of our efforts.Martha Karolyi, the USA national team coordinator since 2000 and a coach in the United States since she and her husband, Bela, defected from Romania in 1981, said Thursday in Rio that she hadnt read the entire news report yet.I just overheard something and I do not think the accusations are right. I dont think they are right, Karolyi told ESPNs Johnette Howard after the womens teams training session. I think USA Gymnastics is one of the most caring organizations about the children. ... But just working with USA Gymnastics for so many years, I just know how much effort is done that everything be done properly.Asked if the news would affect the Olympic team, Karolyi replied, Absolutely not.Were here at the Olympic Games. And then, if there are any other issues, we will address it afterward, she said.Mihai Brestyan, the coach of American gold medalist Aly Raisman, said Team USAs staff will try to protect the gymnasts from any distractions the report might cause.We have concerns, but we try to keep the kids away from that right now, Brestyan told ESPN. [The allegations] are a problem, but we cannot resolve that right now, here this week. Stephen Curry 2 Shoes For Sale . -- Arizona knocked off some quality opponents, rolled over a few overmatched ones and grinded out victories even when things didnt go so well. Ua Scorpio Chrome . -- Cam Newton pranced into the end zone, placed his hands over his chest and did his familiar Superman pose. http:///...ua-phenom-proto.html.com) - Christian Ponder will get another chance to prove himself for the Minnesota Vikings, with head coach Leslie Frazier announcing Wednesday that the struggling quarterback will start this weekends game against the Green Bay Packers. DENVER -- The Denver Nuggets are suddenly looking like an offensive juggernaut.Kenneth Faried scored 25 points, Emmanuel Mudiay had 22 and the Nuggets beat Carmelo Anthony and the New York Knicks 127-114 on Saturday night.Its two games in a row that weve never trailed, said coach Michael Malone, whose Nuggets beat Portland 132-120 two days ago, posting a season high in points in the process that also coincided with the insertion of Wilson Chandler and Nikola Jokic into the starting lineup.If that starting group can play as well as theyve played on both ends of the ball then that really helps out our deep bench when they come into the game. Its just been a combination of our depth, guys playing well, guys embracing the change and who knows where its going to lead to.Added guard Gary Harris: I wouldnt say we turned a corner yet but if we keep playing like this, its going to be good.Anthony, who missed the Knicks loss at Golden State on Thursday night with a bruised right shoulder, had 29 points against his former team but remained winless in five trips to Denver since he was traded to New York in 2011.It was the lack of effort that we put out there tonight, Anthony said. To give up 127 on the road. To be honest, you cant win too many games like that. Today we played one step behind and tried to get it going. They maintained their lead and ran what they wanted to run. I just thought we didnt put forth the effort tonight.The Knicks have dropped nine in a row in Denver overall. Kristaps Porzingis scored 22 points, but New York concluded its five-game road trip with a third consecutive loss for its first three-game slide of the season.In the first NBA matchup of brothers Willy Hernangomez of the Knicks and Juancho Hernangomez of the Nuggets, Willy finished with 17 points. Juancho didnt get into the game until the final minute and went 1 for 2 at the free-throw line. Stephen Curry 2 Shoes Grey. New York trailed by eight at the break, but it closed to 70-66 on a 3-pointer by Brandon Jennings. Denver responded with a 15-3 run capped by Farieds reverse dunk, running the Nuggets lead to 85-69 with 4:28 left to play in the third quarter.Denver carried a 96-80 lead into the fourth quarter and stretched it to 19 when Danilo Gallinari, who came to Denver as part of the Anthony trade, connected on a 3-pointer with 6:07 left.TIP-INSKnicks: G Derrick Rose, who has been bothered by back spasms, was given the night off after experiencing some discomfort during the pregame shootaround. It is stiff, he tries to get it loose and then it feels like it might turn into a spasm, so he doesnt want to really jar it or turn hard on it, coach Jeff Hornacek said.Nuggets: Their nine consecutive wins at home against the Knicks are second only to their home streak against Chicago, which has lost 10 in a row in Denver. ... Denvers starters combined for 73 points and all five had at least 10 points for the second straight game.MISSING ROSEHornacek admitted the absence of Rose seemed to make a difference.It sure looked like it, he said. Brandon (Jennings) has the ability to drive in there too, but Derricks finishes really draw guys into the lane and then where Derrick will kick out, Brandon will dribble out, draw it to somebody, but I dont think other teams are as concerned with Brandon finishing at the basket as Derrick.UP NEXTKnicks: Get a two-day break before returning to action Tuesday night when they host the Indiana Pacers.Nuggets: Complete a three-game homestand by hosting the Dallas Mavericks on Monday night. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys ChinaCheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
