  • I watched the documentary on this subject on Netflix, last night; Athlete A. I was moved by the courage that it took for the first few ladies to come forward, and inspired by those who have come out more recently, while still performing in Elite Level Gymnastics and on the national team. It is also encouraging to see that a relatively small newsroom picked up the story, and refused to let it go. Recommend watching it if you have the chance.

    • Here's another Nassar story. I

      Headline - Larry Nassar has spent thousands in prison but still owes victims nearly $58,000

      https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news...early-n1275346

      Other news sources are reporting the same story. WaPo has a long one, but it's probably behind their paywall.

          • I read some of the testimony given by Maroney. How those young ladies have made it past what that sleaze did to them is astonishing. The strength it had to take to push that out of hour mind and perform at the level they did is truly amazing.

              • Só, what happens to gymnastics now? This is a lot uglier than doping. Presumably, more people go to jail. Where does the $425M come from? I’m guessing that isn’t in the petty cash fund. I doubt they have many real assets. Insurance?

                  They have about 4 different insurance companies - some of which have agreed to pony up the money, but a few are holding out.

                    I have a vague recollection of a Chicago area insurance company that went down when the Chicago diocese had to pay the victims of their child molesting judgements.

                    • This is from today's The Sports Examiner, Rich Perelman's international sports newsletter. Looks like getting closer to the insurance companies covering the settlement costs.

                      Gymnastics ● In advance of Monday’s hearing on the proposed Disclosure Statement for the re-organization plan in the USA Gymnastics case before the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Indiana, another insurer has joined in agreement with the distribution plan.

                      Great American Assurance Company, which had $41,287,985 in coverage outstanding, has agreed to be part of the settlement plan put forward by USA Gymnastics, the U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Committee and the Survivors’ Committee. Only TIG Insurance Company, with listed exposure of $106,201,818 – or 25% of the targeted $425 million total – has not agreed so far.

                      The new plan documents show TIG to have 18 claims against it.

                      Having all but one (very large) insurer as part of the settlement agreement is a strong argument for the plan to be approved, but there are technical objections to it which will be heard on Monday. No allocation plan of who would get how much money has been filed yet.
