    A one-time Olympic hopeful has filed a $10million lawsuit against famed figure skating coach, Richard Callaghan, and the sport's governing body, accusing them of covering up nearly a decade of sexual abuse.  Craig Maurizi, 57, who currently coaches figure skaters himself, alleges in the complaint that Callaghan 'used his position of trust and authority to psychologically groom Craig for what turned into nearly a decade of sexual abuse'. According to the suit, the alleged acts occurred in the 1970s and 1980s. Maurizi's suit also accuses US Figure Skating, the sport’s national governing body, and other institutions of conspiring to 'circumvent their own internal procedures to sweep Craig’s complaints under the rug'. 'I’m still haunted when I allow myself to think about how Callaghan manipulated my mind and body to make me dependent on him, how he abused me under the guise of being a father figure when I was most...

    By EDDIE PELLS, AP National Writer DENVER (AP) — John Carlos wants to abolish the rule that bans protests at the Olympics. The renowned Olympic protester has written a letter with an influential group of American athletes, calling on the IOC to put in place a new policy done in collaboration with athletes from across the globe. Carlos and Tommie Smith raised their fists on the medals stand at the 1968 Mexico City Olympics to protest racial inequality in the United States. They were sent home for violating rules that ban such protests. Those rules remain in place today, though in the wake of global demonstrations against racial injustice, the IOC has recently expressed willingness to rethink them. “Carlos and Smith risked everything to stand for human rights and what they believed in, and they continue to inspire generation after generation to do the same,” the letter said. “It is...

    The first gymnast to report pedophile doctor Larry Nassar's sexual abuse to USA Gymnastics has revealed how she was punished for coming forward - as her parents claim that their child was not picked for the 2016 Olympic team because she chose to speak out.  Maggie Nichols, now 22, was the first athlete to official report the sexual abuse she faced at Nassar's hands to USAG back in 2015, and in a new Netflix documentary Athlete A, the former national team member and her parents reveal how the organization not only covered up her claims, but seemingly penalized her for speaking out.   In the documentary - which is named for the 'Athlete A' label given to Maggie before she chose to waive her anonymity - the family, from Minnesota, explains that they were told not to report Nassar's abuse to the authorities, and reveal how USAG actually used Maggie's Olympic...
    CHICAGO (AP) — Elk Grove Village is holding its own version of “The Bachelor.” It has a nice green rose with five zeroes behind it. Now it’s looking for the right partner. With Olympic leaders concerned about funding heading into the Tokyo Games, Elk Grove is looking to sponsor a U.S. federation in another bid to generate exposure for the Chicago suburb after attracting some lucrative attention for its partnership with college football’s Bahamas Bowl. “We’re the bachelor and we’re going out to the bachelorettes, or we’re the bachelorette going out to the bachelors,” Mayor Craig Johnson said. While Elk Grove is looking to have a little fun with the project — it’s asking for potential suitors to send in videos it plans to post online and show on its TV station — the Olympic movement also could benefit from a blueprint for more creative advertising and marketing deals.

    When the Olympics returned to Los Angeles in 1984, Kimberly Carlisle went to the Grand Canyon, avoiding the wondrous sights and sounds she couldn’t enjoy. She wouldn’t watch the next Games, either. By 1990, she’d been retired from swimming for seven years. She worked in journalism and sales. She was married. She’d soon be pregnant with her first child. And she packed her swim bag. A business trip brought Carlisle to Moscow a decade after Soviet tanks rolled into Afghanistan, triggering the U.S. boycott of the 1980 Summer Olympics, which denied her and 465 other Americans their dream. Carlisle could not have redemption. She could not have recognition. She would settle for catharsis. She remembered what it was like in Montreal, where any visitor could pay a small fee and swim at the 1976 Olympic facility, integrated into the city’s fabric. Finally, she could touch Russia’s once-forbidden water, too. When...
    DENVER (AP) — The U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Committee is creating an athlete group that will look into loosening restrictions on protests at the games. CEO Sarah Hirshland tweeted the plans for a new group, which is being formed in response to George Floyd’s death last month and the worldwide protests that followed. Floyd, a black man, died May 25 after a white Minneapolis police officer pressed his knee into Floyd’s neck while Floyd was handcuffed and saying that he couldn’t breathe. The USOPC put out a statement last week signaling its solidarity with black athletes, but received blowback from several athletes, most notably hammer thrower Gwen Berry, who is serving a 12-month probation for raising her fist on the medals stand at the Pan-Am Games last summer. The USOPC has consistently cited the IOC’s Rule 50, which bans inside-the-lines protests at the Olympics, as a reason for its...
    LONDON (AP) — The tennis rankings that come out after the 2021 French Open will be used to determine who qualifies for the postponed Tokyo Olympics. The International Tennis Federation said Tuesday that its eligibility rules will be the same as originally set up for Tokyo, with requirements related to minimum participation in Fed Cup or Davis Cup — and an appeals process for players who do not meet those standards. The cutoff for ATP and WTA rankings points for the 2020 Games originally had been Monday, the day after this year’s French Open was supposed to end. But because of the coronavirus pandemic, the Olympics were pushed back a year from next month to July 2021. The 2020 French Open also was postponed and is now scheduled to start in September. Next year’s French Open will end on June 6, so the WTA and ATP rankings of June 7...
    TOKYO (AP) - It’s been 2 1/2 months since the Tokyo Olympics were postponed until next year because of the COVID-19 pandemic. So where do the games stand? So far, many ideas about how the Olympic can take place are being floated by the International Olympic Committee, Japanese officials and politicians, and in unsourced Japanese newspaper articles coming from local organizers and politicians. The focus is on soaring costs, fans - or no fans - possible quarantines for athletes, and cutting back to only “the essentials.” No one blames the IOC for not knowing what conditions will be a year from now. And from the IOC perspective, there is no need yet to speak frankly and possibly alienate Japanese politicians and citizens, sponsors and TV broadcasters, and athletes. The IOC executive board meets on Wednesday and will hear a brief presentation from Tokyo organizers on a remote hookup, explaining where...
    (CNN)Working two jobs is a lot for anyone to take on, let alone an elite athlete on a mission to make her first Olympic Games. That's been the reality for British shot putter Sophie McKinna who has been balancing her dream of Olympic glory with work as both a custody officer and gym instructor for years. Her work with the local constabulary makes up the majority of her income and serves as a perfect distraction from her sporting career, even if things get occasionally heated. "We're like the bouncers. If people start kicking off, we deal with that so it's an interesting job," she told CNN Sport. "It gets the blood pumping sometimes when you have someone difficult."
