AN EXPERT INVESTIGATION INTO THE FAILURE OF A NATIONAL GOVERNING BODY TO PROTECT DOZENS OF YOUNG FEMALE SWIMMERS FROM ABUSIVE COACHES
In this superb investigative report, Brian Ross and his team exposed a problem few would suspect: more than 30 youth swim coaches have been banned over the last decade for sexual misconduct. Dating back several decades, Ross interviews victims, parents and one current coach to piece together dozens of cases of sex abuse complaints. With insight, balance and fairness, the program revealed the systemic failures of USA Swimming, the national governing body assigned to protect young female swimmers. Ross confronted the head of the agency in a skillful interview. This groundbreaking report led to change and action at USA Swimming to protect young swimmers.
