According to a new congressional report, the U.S. Olympic community prioritized “medals and money” over the safety of its athletes. The report concluded that this culture of winning contributed to widespread instances of sexual abuse. The report comes after more than 350 women testified that former USA Gymnastics team doctor Larry Nassar abused them during his tenure. Reuters reported that USOC CEO Sarah Hirshland expressed gratitude for the House committee’s report. Hirshland said, “Sexual abuse, harassment and discrimination have no place in the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic community, and it’s on all of us...to foster a healthy culture for competitive excellence."
