ROME -- Juventus two prized acquisitions were on full display in a convincing 3-1 win over Sassuolo in Serie A on Saturday. Daeshon Hall Jersey .Gonzalo Higuain scored twice in the opening 10 minutes and Miralem Pjanic added another before the break as the Bianconeri warmed up for a Champions League it has designs on winning.Everyone says Juve will win everything -- the league, Cup and the Champions League. But that hurts us, because we lose perspective, Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri said. Weve got to play the matches and win them on the pitch.Higuain and Pjanic were each making their first starts for Juventus after transferring from rivals Napoli and Roma, respectively.Higuains move broke the Italian transfer fee record at 90 million euros ($100 million) after scoring 36 times last season to break a 66-year-old Serie A mark for goals scored in a single season.Pjanic, the crafty Bosnia playmaker, arrived for a more modest 32 million euros ($36 million).Higuains new partnership with fellow Argentina forward Paulo Dybala didnt take long to function. Five minutes in, Dybala provided the through ball for Higuain to finish off a counterattack with an angled shot inside the far post.Five minutes later, Higuain produced an acrobatic effort to redirect in a headed pass from Sami Khedira.The partnership with Dybala is improving. But I just got here. Weve got time, Higuain said. Im really happy to have come here.Pjanics first goal of the season came following a rebound of his own shot off the crossbar.It wasnt all perfect, though.Goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon came up empty handed when he leaped to grab a corner, allowing Sassuolos Luca Antei to score when the ball bounced off his feet.It marked the second time Juventus has conceded a goal from a corner this season, after conceding two all of last season.Still, Juventus has a full nine points from the opening three rounds as it aims to become the first club to win Serie A for six consecutive years.Napoli, last seasons runner-up, is two points behind in second place after a 3-0 win at Palermo.On Wednesday, Juventus hosts Sevilla in the Champions League aiming to improve on its runner-up finish from 2015.Compared to two years ago, Allegri has a much deeper squad to choose from. Among those who started on the bench were standouts such as Mario Mandzukic, Dani Alves, Patrice Evra, Juan Cuadrado, Hernanes, and Andrea Barzagli.Sassuolo was the revelation of Serie A last season, finishing sixth, but has won just one of its opening three matches in this campaign. The club from near Modena was missing its star forward, Domenico Berardi, who was injured.---NAPOLI-POST HIGUAINNapoli is doing just fine without Higuain.Jose Callejon scored twice and Marek Hamsik opened the scoring for the Partenopei in a 3-0 win at Palermo.After opening with a disappointing 2-2 draw at promoted Pescara, Napoli followed that up with a 4-2 win over AC Milan and has now extended its unbeaten start to three matches.Hamsik put Napoli ahead early in the second half with a shot from the center of the area that went in off the crossbar and Callejon doubled the lead three minutes later by crouching down for a header after being left unmarked inside the box.Callejon added another with a shot from the edge of the area.Often obscured during Higuains tenure at Napoli, the former Real Madrid striker Callejon has scored four goals in two matches.Napoli returns to the Champions League at Dynamo Kiev on Tuesday.Palermo coach Roberto De Zerbi made a disappointing debut after Davide Ballardinis resignation.---Andrew Dampf on Twitter: www.twitter.com/asdampf Curtis Samuel Youth Jersey . The Canadian squad, skipped by Jennifer Jones of Winnipeg, got on the board first with two in the second end, and followed that with two more apiece in the fourth and sixth ends.

Uihlein, the former Oklahoma State star who won the 2010 U.S. Amateur, birdied four of his last eight holes to finish at 15-under 273 at Santo da Serra. "Im just thrilled," Uihlein said "To do it playing well on the back nine, coming down the stretch, is sweet. ... I just knuckled down I guess. It was all putting that did it today, I was just trying to free up and they started to roll in so it was nice." The 23-year-old Uihlein earned a European TTour exemption through next season. Taylor Moton Youth Jersey. His father, Wally Uihlein, is the chief executive golf apparel and equipment manufacturer Acushnet. "You grow up quick out here and that was the main reason I came over," Uihlein said. "Its been a good process so far and hopefully I can keep going."

Tullo, the third-round leader, had a hole-in-one on No. 4, but had four bogeys in a 71. Scotlands Craig Lee closed with a 71 to finish three strokes behind Uihlein.

Tony Stewart got back to his happy place on Tuesday, in more ways than one. Duke Riley Jersey .Stewart, who grew up in Rushville, Indiana, and owns a ranch near Columbus, spent much of the day at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, the track that captivated him as a boy and ultimately motivated him to be a champion racer of both stock cars and Indy cars.The prospect of going to IMS perks up Stewart anytime, even if it means doing hours of media and promotion for the 23rd annual Brickyard 400, set for July 24. But IMS president Doug Boles had a trick up his sleeve this time to make a working day more pleasant: He and the IMS team conceived and built a temporary 3/16-mile dirt track inside Turn 3 of the IMS oval and brought out a handful of USAC Midget cars and drivers for hot laps.Talk about Stewarts happy place.Im addicted, he admitted. As soon as I saw it, I thought, Well, Im going to need to run a couple laps. I knew it was a possibility but I didnt know for sure. I had stuff [a drivers suit and helmet] with me. The worst thing you can do is drop me in the middle of a racetrack ... of course Im going to drive.Theyve been sending me pictures and videos of the progress since Day 1, Stewart added. So Ive been looking forward to this day. Its pretty impressive to be able to do something like this in such a short amount of time.Stewart had actually been talking to Boles on and off for the past three years, having what-if conversations about the possibility of a short track on the IMS grounds. With the popular local driver having announced his retirement at the end of the season from full-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series competition, the opportunity was there for IMS to give the Hoosier native a unique parting gift hes not likely to forget anytime soon.Every year we talk and he said, We could do pavement and it would be fun, but man, you need a dirt track, Boles related. It was a pretty easy decision for us. Tony has meant a lot to the Speedway, not only because hes been able to run both of our big events, but as much as anything because he grew up here. He is pretty vocal in saying that this is his favorite race track and the place hes always wanted to win.So we wanted to have some fun with Tony and our friends at USAC helped us lay this out, he added. This is temporary, but if it makes sense, there may be a day that you see something like this here for special events at the Speedway.For Stewart, it was an opportunity to reconnect with his short track roots in a low-key environment out of the public spotlight.Following the trail blazed by Jeff Gordon a few years earlier, Stewart blitzed the USAC championship trail in the early 1990s, becoming the first driver to win all three Triple Crown championships (Midget, Silver Crown and Sprint) in the same season in 1995. He parlayed that into championship success in the Indy Racing League before switching disciplines to stock car racing in 1999.Now 45, Stewart has become one of NASCARs top stars, winning the Cup series championship three times (2002, 05 and 11) as well as nearly every important stock car race with the exception of the Daytona 500. Hes also a successful team owner, both at the USAC level as well as the co-owner of the Stewart-Haas Racing Cup team that he drives for.But in recent years, he has grown tired of the demands of a modern NASCAR driver. He expressed his unhappiness as recently as two weeks ago, just prior to the surprise victory at Sonoma Raceway that should land him in this years Chase for the Sprint Cup.He has made it clear that even though he is retiring from the Cup series, he clearly still wants to compete somewhere.He always continued to run Sprint and Midget cars on the side throughout his IRL and NASCAR career, and despite a pair of life-altering sprint car accidents in 2013 (when he broke his right leg in an accident at Southern Iowa Speedway) and 2014 (when his car fatally struck driver Kevin Ward Jr. at Canandaigua Motorsports Park, resulting in a lawsuit that remains unsettled), his love for grass-roots racing remains intact.Fallout from the Ward accident, as well as a sand buggy accident in January in which he sustained a broken back, has kept Stewart out of his beloved dirt track cars for nearly two years. Thats why it was such a treat for him to turn laps on the dirt at IMS in a Midget prepared by his old car owner, Keith Kunz.The smile on his face when he stepped out of the No. 71 car normally driven by Carson Macedo said it all. Stewart lapped with former USAC and Indy car driver Sarah Fisher and multiple USAC titleholder Bryan Clauson, running three-wide at one point on the narrow, flat oval.That was fun -- a good time, he exclaimed. It brought back a lot of memories. I havent been in a midget for 2? years and I miss it. The tough part is I dont fit this car very well. These drivers are much smaller than I am. It was great to get back in a Keith Kunz car and I guarantee you it would be fun to do this more often. Bryan was getting around there pretty good.This is the ultimate, he added. We all wish we had this in our backyard to go play. Only six more months and I get to play in these all I want.Stewart remains a staunch supporter of the USAC trail, whether a driver wants to pursue stock cars or Indy cars as a career goal.If you can control a car on a track like this, thats the kind of car control you need to race an Indy car or a stock car around the speedway, he said. The skills that these guys learn and pick up at an early age running these type of cars go a long way.But its hard to get here. I hit the lottery; I got lucky getting my opportunity to come here. Theres a lot of drivers that deserve the chance to come race at Indy and they have the talent to do it.Stewart never accomplished his original goal of winning the Indianapolis 500; his best finish was fifth in 1997. Even though he never got to drink the traditional winners milk, a pair of Brickyard 400 victories (2005 and 07) served as a fair consolation prize.On Tuesday, Boles presented Stewart with a commemorative IMS milk bottle -- filled with dirt from Smokes Turn 3 playground.I dont know if it will taste that good, Stewart quipped. But thats as close as Im going to get to drinking milk. Takkarist McKinley Jersey .

Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona said Tuesday morning that video showing him extending a middle finger to a camera during Game 3 of the American League Championship Series on Monday night against the Toronto Blue Jays was a nervous habit and not intentional. Budda Baker Youth Jersey .God, I was so embarrassed when I heard that or when somebody asked me that after the game, Francona said on ESPNs Mike & Mike. I think I have a nervous habit of kind of picking my face a little bit.I would never do that [intentionally], he said, before quipping, My goodness, I mean maybe in the clubhouse, but not out there.During the TBS telecast on Monday night, a camera captured Francona in the dugout in the first inning. Francona looked at the camera as it zoomed in. He held up his right hand, middle finger extended, and brushed it under his right eye.No, shoot, I was so embarrassed when somebody told me that, Francona said. Thats just a quirk of fate.After Monday nights?4-2 victory, the Indians hold a 3-0 series lead over the Blue Jays. Cleveland is within one win of its first pennant since 1997.

Benji Marshall is reportedly set to be thrown a lifeline by Brisbane as the veteran playmaker seeks an NRL swan song.The former St George Illawarra half is poised to sign a one-year deal with the Broncos, Channel Seven reported.The 31-year-old earlier in the year knocked back a $300,000 offer from the Dragons before falling out of favour after a lacklustre 2016.He was dropped for the penultimate last game of the season by coach Paul McGregor and appeared set to be without a club for 2017 before the likely cut-price deal tabled by the Broncos under coach Wayne Bennett.The former New Zealand Test pivot has a long association with the master coach, having played under him with the NRL All Stars and they were both a part of the Kiwis 2008 World Cup win.If he does ink a deal with the Broncos, he is likely to play most of the year in the Queensland Cup with the Broncoos boasting quality halves in Anthony Milford and Ben Hunt.

However Marshall would give them much-needed depth, especially with both Hunt and Milford on the cusp of State of Origin representation with Queensland next year, especially if Johnathan Thurston, Cooper Cronk and Michael Morgan suffer injury.Marshalls manager Mario Tartak last week said he was in discussions with three Sydney clubs.Marshall also took to Instagram to apologise to Dragons fans for their lack of success during 2016.I am personally sorry for the results on the field this year and the part I played in that, Marshall said.But Im glad I could be a part of last years team in making the finals for the first time in four years which was a highlight for me.

LIVERPOOL, England -- Sadio Mane grabbed the winner in the fourth minute of injury time as Liverpool beat Everton 1-0 on Monday to head into Christmas in second place in the Premier League and extend its recent dominance of Merseyside derbies. Walace Brazil Jersey .Substitute Daniel Sturridges low long-range shot dribbled against the post and Mane tapped the rebound into an empty net, sparking wild celebrations among Liverpool supporters that saw two red flares thrown onto the playing surface.After a 227th derby match that was frantic and bereft of quality and scoring chances, Liverpool moved above Manchester City and back to within six points of Chelsea, which has won its last 11 league games.Evertons struggles in this local rivalry continued -- the blue half of Merseyside has been victorious only once in the past 20 meetings -- but Liverpool didnt look like a side that started the match on top of the leagues scoring charts with 40 goals until Mane came to the rescue.The plan of Everton was wild football, Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp said. It was a battle and we were ready for it.It wont be a match that lingers long in the memory, except for the dramatic late goal and a shocking challenge by Evertons Ross Barkley on England teammate Jordan Henderson that could easily have earned him a red card. Instead, it was one of four bookings in a fixture that has produced more red cards -- 21 -- than any other in the 24-year history of the Premier League.It was pretty late, Henderson said. I know him well, Im good friends with him. Obviously he mistimed the tackle and he apologized after. Its a derby -- it doesnt matter if youre friends off the field.Continuing their momentum from the 2-1 win over Arsenal at Goodison Park last week, Evertons players tore into Liverpool in the frantic opening minutes that were marked by high energy and misplaced passes. Everton defender Ramiro Funes Mori set the tone with a powerful early header and the hosts were both stronger in the tackle and first to the ball in a febrile atmosphere.They didnt look like scoring, though, and Liverpool had established an element of control by the half-hour mark. Divock Origi snatched at a low cross by Nathaniel Clyne in the 37th, sending his effort wide, and the first half ended with neither side having a shot on target.Liverpool stayed on top after halftime, with Everton goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg blocking Roberto Firminos attempted lob before hobbling off injured after clashing with teammate Leighton Baines. The lengthy period of treatment for Stekelenburgs injury was the main reason for the eight minutes of stoppage time, of which Liverpool took full advantage.The ugly lunge by Barkley on Hendersons right ankle angered Liverpools players and coaching staff, sparking a melee on the field involving most of the players. Finally there was some spice to the match.Sturridge came on for Origi and with one of his first touches, the striker sent in the shot that led to the winning goal and ended Evertons nine-month unbeaten home record in the league.It was intense, Klopp said. Not the greatest football but its how a derby should be.---Steve Douglas is at www.twitter.com/sdouglas80 Dani Alves Jersey .S. Open champion Justin Rose birdied the first hole with a blind shot he hit to a foot of the pin, and he stayed in front Tuesday until he completed a 4-under 67 for a two-shot lead over Jason Dufner in PGA Grand Slam of Golf.

Novak Djokovics surprise withdrawal from the event means the pair will take centre stage with a first meeting since the Montreal Masters last year.In Canada, Wawrinka was forced to withdraw with the Aussie 4-0 up in the third and final set - although the match will mostly be remembered for Kyrgios sledging his opponent with some unsavoury remarks. The pair have one win apiece from their two previous showdowns and are both bidding for a second title of the year in the absence of the world number one.  Djokovic out in Dubai World number one forced to withdraw Djokovic withdrew from his quarter-final after losing the first set against Feliciano Lopez, complaining of a problem with his eye, so the tournament will seek a new champion for the first time since 2008 - the Serb and Roger Federer have won the last seven events.Kyrgios has been in sparkling form for the last couple of weeks, winning his first ATP Tour title in France when claiming the Open 13 in Marseille and now, despite being unseeded, he has moved into the last four in Dubai, seeing off third seed Tomas Berdych in straight sets on Thursday. The 20-year-old got the better of Berdych for a second week in succession and he was pleased to overcome some injury and illness scares of his own.I wasnt in the greatest shape. I think I got a bit of food poisoning last night. I was really surprised with the performance I gave out there today to come out there and beat a quality player and in tough conditions. Its probably my favourite win over the past couple of weeks, Kyrgios said.Its tough, especially with Tomas. Hes so diligent with everything he does. Hes so professional. So for me to come out there and put in a great performance like that, I just took my chances when they came.Wawrinka eased past Philipp Kohlschreiber in their quarter-final; after a tight opening set he raced through the second without losing a game as he looks to add to the title he won in Chennai earlier this year. Kyrgios ousts Berdych Aussie continues fine form in Dubai Spaniard Lopez was the beneficiary of Djokovics exit and next up for him will be the mercurial Marcos Baghdatis in the second match on court. Rafinha Jersey. Lopez advanced to his first semi-final of the season following Djokovics unfortunate withdrawal - the sixth seed has also seen off Guillermo Garcia-Lopez and Lukas Rosol to reach the last four. Marcos Baghdatis is bidding for a first title since 2010 Baghdatis was at his brilliant best on Thursday to see off two-time winner this season Roberto Bautista Agut in straight sets - the second seed he has beaten having dumped out Viktor Troicki in the first round.However world number 24 Lopez will have to overcome a 1-3 record against Baghdatis if he is to remain on course for a first singles title since Eastbourne in 2014.The pair have not met since Indian Wells in 2012 when the Cypriot was a comfortable straight sets winner - Lopezs only victory a fourth round epic at Wimbledon in 2008.Baghdatis has not won a title since Sydney in 2010, while he has only made one final since 2011 but he is likely to have the majority of the crowd support behind him when they take to the court in the second semi-final.You can follow all the action from Dubai live on Sky Sports 3 from 1pm on Friday.

The following was told to espnW by a former gymnast whose coach was found guilty of rape of a child and indecent assault and battery on a person over 14. Justin Braun Sharks Jersey . She felt compelled to share her ordeal after recent reports that USA Gymnastics has repeatedly failed to report abuse cases?in the hopes that her story, when added to the voices of other young women, can help to enact change.?To prevent retaliation or harassment, we are not identifying her or the coach involved.It had been three years since we started having sex when the man who would later be convicted of raping me took me to an abortion clinic. He had scheduled the appointment for after my 18th birthday so that I wouldnt need a parent to sign their permission for the procedure.We went to a clinic that was an hour from where he lived and he dropped me off at the corner because he didnt want to be seen. I went in by myself, and I sat there in this room full of scared young women, all of whom had someone to support them except for me.I was taken into the back room. I remember lying down on the table and then waking up on the table. But I was in a total daze. They wheeled me out into the waiting room and I said, Im ready to go. And when they asked whether someone was there to pick me up, I said, Im sure hes waiting outside.And there he was, waiting in his car. He took me to a restaurant, and I ate two bites of food, then ran to the restroom and vomited violently. We went back to his house and he had to go coach gymnastics, so he left me there. And I remember thinking, What the f---? Why am I doing this? Why isnt somebody taking care of me right now?I had my follow-up appointment scheduled for a week later, and during recovery youre not supposed to have sex. But the night before I was supposed to go, he forced me to have sex with him because he just couldnt wait that long.I thought, What am I doing with this guy? This wasnt a real relationship.Youd think that any interactions with a child predator would be scary, but my first moments with that coach?didnt scare me one bit. I was a gymnast, and he came up from Connecticut for a meet with our gym in Massachusetts, and then all of the gymnasts and coaches went to an amusement park together.I was 13 years old, and I remember thinking he was very handsome and exuberant and had this larger-than-life personality. He was 33, and everybody wanted to be around him. He was one of those people who made you think, I would like him to notice me.On that first day, we were all standing in line for a roller coaster, singing the Billy Joel song Captain Jack. He came up to us, a bunch of 13-year-olds, and was like, You know what that song is about, right? And we said, Its about a captain! Captain Jack? And he said, No, that song is about masturbation.And I dont know if Id even heard someone say that word out loud before -- and obviously never a gymnastics coach. Looking back, it was this icebreaker. He threw this word out there, and all of a sudden we went from being coaches and athletes to having an adult conversation. And every teenager wants that, right?At the end of the day he gave me a jacket from his gym, and I was the only person he gave one to, so I thought, This is somebody who is so interesting and everyone wants to be around him, and yet hes paying attention to me.I can trace everything back to that day. I wasnt the best gymnast in the gym, so his attention was a way for me to stand out. This amazing coach has noticed me. From that day onward, I was excited to see him, and wed see each other fairly often at gymnastics meets and at a summer camp.For two or three weeks in July, he and two other coaches would run a gymnastics camp. It was usually held on a college campus, and wed train during the day, stay in dorm rooms at night and do some normal summer camp things when we werent in the gym, such as campfires and talent shows.But it was far from a wholesome camp experience, at least for me. Once you became a junior counselor around age 14, you were a part of the staff, and although you still trained during the day, you were allowed to hang out with the coaches at night, drinking and playing games that included things like strip poker and group showers. And that sexual environment often carried over to the daytime workouts.Once, I finished a tumbling pass at camp and was walking past the coach when he turned to another coach and said, in front of me, Its taking all of my willpower not to go after that one. I was 14 years old, walking past him in a leotard.It didnt matter to me that this older coach shouldnt be making those comments. From my perspective, it was just nice to be noticed. This gymnastics camp was billed by our coaches as something special -- youre part of it, and its a family. Whatever happens here stays here. And if people didnt subscribe to this and stopped coming to the camp, they would be shunned. God, you didnt want to be outside the circle.As gymnasts, we were conditioned to show how tough we could be, how little emotion we could show. We were trained to say that nothing bothered us and not show any sign of fear or pain.It all clouded my ability to see that what was happening with this coach was wrong.The first time he kissed me was in a moving truck. I was 14. He was driving. It was at the end of camp, and we were bringing mats back to one of the gyms. I remember he asked me to come sit on his lap -- while the truck was speeding down the highway. My heart was racing, knowing that something was going to happen. I was completely inexperienced with boys at that point, and then all of a sudden my coach was French-kissing me.Not long after, we were alone, and he had me put my hand down his pants and touch his penis. I knew this was not normal, and afterward I felt sick to my stomach. I couldnt sleep. I couldnt talk to anybody the next day. Now when I look back, I can see clearly that it was a violation -- that I had trusted this person, and he went way too far. At the time, I thought I was ready for something like this. But when this very adult thing happened, I wasnt ready at all.We talked later about it on the phone, and he said, Maybe you cant handle this. Maybe you arent as mature as I thought you were. He was challenging me. I was supposed to rise to it, not shy away from it. So I said, No, no, I can handle this. I do want to be with you. And I actually thought we were in a consensual relationship.He would say, You cant tell anyone. I could go to jail. What we have is special; no one will understand. That never triggered in my mind that something was wrong. I wanted to think that we did have something special, and I never told anyone.He continued to pursue me. We had intercourse when I was 15. It wasnt pleasant -- it was painful. But I remember walking away and feeling proud of myself, like I got through it. It was like in gymnastics, when you do that move that youre so scared to do.The thing I was most scared of was getting caught, because I thought I was going to get in trouble. I thought I was the one doing something wrong.The turning point for me wasnt that abortion at age 18. It was about two years after that, when I was hanging out with a couple of the gymnasts he coached, and I heard about a woman he was dating. I thought that he was cheating on me, so I went back to his house, where Id been staying, and started searching for evidence.I found a letter one of his former athletes wrote to him, talking about how he manipulated her into having sex with him when she was 15. She said she remembered the first time he entered her and how she cried, and how he would bribe her with gifts and money not to tell anyone, that she would sneak out of her house to meet with him.I didnt understand. It felt like I was reading about myself. I started to realize that I wasnt special -- he had done the same thing in the past. He was a predator. I couldnt believe there was another me out there.I confronted him about it, but he somehow twisted it around so that I was in the wrong for snooping in his house. He raged at me, and I was scared of his anger. I came away feeling guilty -- that I had done something wrong. And I wanted to believe that I was wrong about what Id found. So I didnt walk away, but I was very suspicious from that point forward, and finding that letter was the best thing that could have happened to me. It shifted my path forever.A few months later, he called me and told me that three women -- in addition to the woman who had written that letter -- had accused him of sexual abuse and that there would be an article coming out in the newspaper. He said he felt horrible that hed ruined so many peoples lives. It was the one moment when he displayed any sense of wrongdoing. Later, he would fight tooth and nail against the allegations. He said the girls were all older than 16, the age of consent, and that yes, he had relationships with them, but considered it dating because hed been only 25 at the time.I often wonder why I stuck by him as I watched the investigation go on. But I never felt a draw to stand beside these other women. There was a part of me that still wanted to hang on to this idea that his relationship with me was different.The accusations from those four women didnt lead to any criminal charges because they couldnt prove the girls had been under 16. But he was banned from USA Gymnastics in 1998. He could no longer be a member. He made a big deal out of it at the time, but I remember thinking that it didnt seem to have any impact on his life. Maybe parents didnt fully understand what had happened because he tried to garner a lot of sympathy, claiming it was all untrue and unfair. Only a few parents took their gymnasts out of his gym, and he competed with his team under different organizations instead of USA Gymnastics. He still was a director at the camp, and it seemed as if other coaches stood by him.When I look back at this, it makes me feel very frustrated by USA Gymnastics. I often think that I could have been saved if its policies were different. It all comes from the leadership down, and unless the leadership stands up and says, We are not going to tolerate this, nothing will change*. It needs to say, Anyone who crosses a toe over the line were drawing here is going to be out. You will be banned. Well talk to our sister organizations, and you wont be able to find a loophole and have access to kids. You cant run a gymnastics camp.I moved across the country shortly after he was banned to pursue a graduate degree and because I knew I needed to get away from him.After moving, I was talking to a fellow grad student who asked, So what was your longest relationship? I told him seven years, and he couldnt believe it. I told him it started when I was 14, and it was with someone 20 years older than me. It was the first time Id said any of this out loud.And this guy just looked at me and says, You know thats illegal, right? I felt like I had broken through into another universe, where there were clear lines and boundaries. I didnt have any of that in gymnastics. And I thought, Holy s---, what happened to me was wrong.I didnt want to bring him down, though. I just didnt want to be a part of it anymore. So I tried to reclaim my life far away from New England. But my part in it wasnt over.A close friend was training to be a therapist, and one day, in 2006, she talked to her own therapist about the way our gymnastics coaches had treated us. She also told her what had happened to me. And her therapist said, Thank you for sharing that with me. Im required by law to report this. It was just like that.The therapist told my friend that we could report it ourselves if we wanted to, or she would do it. I felt like my entire perspective shifted again. Even though I knew that it had been illegal, I still thought of the relationship as mostly consensual. Id never thought that what happened to me was a crime that needed to be reported right away, and for the first time I realized this could be happening to other girls, right then. I knew I had to report it.The process of going to trial would deter anybody from reporting sexual abuse. The district attorney warned me that it would feel like I was the one on trial. I didnt know what that meant when he said it, but I lived it. Everything that you do is under scrutiny. Your character is questioned. People blog about you and call you a liar and say this is unrequited love or youre just doing this to get attention.Throughout the three weeks of trial in 2010, the defense attorney would say things like, Are you sure you didnt lie in your journal? Or, Werent you a very mature 14-year-old? It was degrading and infuriating, and then we finally got to the end, and the prosecution team told me I needed to be prepared that the jury might come back with a not-guilty verdict.My heart was pounding when they read the verdicts, and I just froze when they said guilty on every count: rape of a child (three counts) and indecent assault and battery on a person over 14 (two counts). In the elevator as I left the courthouse, I collapsed and cried hysterically. I am so grateful for that jury.During the trial, many people had come forward with stories of abuse from the same man. I met the woman who had sent the letter that I had found in his house -- the letter that had changed my life. I remember this amazing sense of community, that all of these women whom Id never met before could tell the same story about their childhood as I could. There was so much positive energy in such a negative situation. We had been an army of women, and the pain wed suffered as kids was validated by that verdict.Ive had people tell me how strong I was to go to court and take this guy down. I know its meant as a compliment, and I try to hold on to that. But if I could go back and have none of this happen to me, I would do that in a second.When I look back on my childhood, I wonder who I would be without this experience. I still have nightmares that coaches are coming after me, looking for revenge. Im scared of when he gets out of jail. Its something that will always be with me, and I know I can never get those years of my life back.Some of the best people in my life have constantly reminded me that we are not our experiences -- that, as the quote says, we can take the lesson but leave the situation. And I do take this: We brought a group of women together who were so scared and alone, ashamed and hurt, and we created a community of survivors. And we made sure that this man could never hurt another girl.*In a statement to espnW, USA Gymnastics said?it received a complaint about the coach in 1997 from adults who had previously been athletes in USAG. The organization hired a retired FBI agent, who investigated the complaint and spoke with local authorities. The investigation resulted in the termination of the coachs professional membership, public notice of that termination and a lifetime ban on his participation in sanctioned competitions and other events. None of the existing USAG staff was with the organization at the time the original complaint was filed.It is heartbreaking and unacceptable for a young person to have the intolerable burden that results from being a victim of sexual misconduct, USAG chief executive officer Steve Penny said in the statement. We share the outrage that sexual assault victims and their families feel. This is why USA Gymnastics has implemented SafeSport training?and created educational materials that encourage members to contact law enforcement first when reporting incidents of abuse.

It shifted my path forever.A few months later, he called me and told me that three women -- in addition to the woman who had written that letter -- had accused him of sexual abuse and that there would be an article coming out in the newspaper. He said he felt horrible that hed ruined so many peoples lives. It was the one moment when he displayed any sense of wrongdoing. Later, he would fight tooth and nail against the allegations. He said the girls were all older than 16, the age of consent, and that yes, he had relationships with them, but considered it dating because hed been only 25 at the time.I often wonder why I stuck by him as I watched the investigation go on. But I never felt a draw to stand beside these other women. There was a part of me that still wanted to hang on to this idea that his relationship with me was different.The accusations from those four women didnt lead to any criminal charges because they couldnt prove the girls had been under 16. But he was banned from USA Gymnastics in 1998. He could no longer be a member. He made a big deal out of it at the time, but I remember thinking that it didnt seem to have any impact on his life. Maybe parents didnt fully understand what had happened because he tried to garner a lot of sympathy, claiming it was all untrue and unfair. Only a few parents took their gymnasts out of his gym, and he competed with his team under different organizations instead of USA Gymnastics. He still was a director at the camp, and it seemed as if other coaches stood by him.When I look back at this, it makes me feel very frustrated by USA Gymnastics. I often think that I could have been saved if its policies were different. It all comes from the leadership down, and unless the leadership stands up and says, We are not going to tolerate this, nothing will change*. It needs to say, Anyone who crosses a toe over the line were drawing here is going to be out. You will be banned. Well talk to our sister organizations, and you wont be able to find a loophole and have access to kids. You cant run a gymnastics camp.I moved across the country shortly after he was banned to pursue a graduate degree and because I knew I needed to get away from him.After moving, I was talking to a fellow grad student who asked, So what was your longest relationship? I told him seven years, and he couldnt believe it. I told him it started when I was 14, and it was with someone 20 years older than me. It was the first time Id said any of this out loud.And this guy just looked at me and says, You know thats illegal, right? I felt like I had broken through into another universe, where there were clear lines and boundaries. I didnt have any of that in gymnastics. And I thought, Holy s---, what happened to me was wrong.I didnt want to bring him down, though. I just didnt want to be a part of it anymore. So I tried to reclaim my life far away from New England. But my part in it wasnt over.A close friend was training to be a therapist, and one day, in 2006, she talked to her own therapist about the way our gymnastics coaches had treated us. She also told her what had happened to me. And her therapist said, Thank you for sharing that with me. Im required by law to report this. It was just like that.The therapist told my friend that we could report it ourselves if we wanted to, or she would do it. I felt like my entire perspective shifted again. Even though I knew that it had been illegal, I still thought of the relationship as mostly consensual. Id never thought that what happened to me was a crime that needed to be reported right away, and for the first time I realized this could be happening to other girls, right then. I knew I had to report it.The process of going to trial would deter anybody from reporting sexual abuse. The district attorney warned me that it would feel like I was the one on trial. I didnt know what that meant when he said it, but I lived it. Everything that you do is under scrutiny. Your character is questioned. People blog about you and call you a liar and say this is unrequited love or youre just doing this to get attention.Throughout the three weeks of trial in 2010, the defense attorney would say things like, Are you sure you didnt lie in your journal? Or, Werent you a very mature 14-year-old? It was degrading and infuriating, and then we finally got to the end, and the prosecution team told me I needed to be prepared that the jury might come back with a not-guilty verdict.My heart was pounding when they read the verdicts, and I just froze when they said guilty on every count: rape of a child (three counts) and indecent assault and battery on a person over 14 (two counts). In the elevator as I left the courthouse, I collapsed and cried hysterically. I am so grateful for that jury.During the trial, many people had come forward with stories of abuse from the same man. I met the woman who had sent the letter that I had found in his house -- the letter that had changed my life. I remember this amazing sense of community, that all of these women whom Id never met before could tell the same story about their childhood as I could. There was so much positive energy in such a negative situation. We had been an army of women, and the pain wed suffered as kids was validated by that verdict.Ive had people tell me how strong I was to go to court and take this guy down. I know its meant as a compliment, and I try to hold on to that. But if I could go back and have none of this happen to me, I would do that in a second.When I look back on my childhood, I wonder who I would be without this experience. I still have nightmares that coaches are coming after me, looking for revenge. Im scared of when he gets out of jail. Its something that will always be with me, and I know I can never get those years of my life back.Some of the best people in my life have constantly reminded me that we are not our experiences -- that, as the quote says, we can take the lesson but leave the situation. And I do take this: We brought a group of women together who were so scared and alone, ashamed and hurt, and we created a community of survivors. And we made sure that this man could never hurt another girl.*In a statement to espnW, USA Gymnastics said?it received a complaint about the coach in 1997 from adults who had previously been athletes in USAG. The organization hired a retired FBI agent, who investigated the complaint and spoke with local authorities. The investigation resulted in the termination of the coachs professional membership, public notice of that termination and a lifetime ban on his participation in sanctioned competitions and other events. None of the existing USAG staff was with the organization at the time the original complaint was filed.It is heartbreaking and unacceptable for a young person to have the intolerable burden that results from being a victim of sexual misconduct, USAG chief executive officer Steve Penny said in the statement. We share the outrage that sexual assault victims and their families feel. This is why USA Gymnastics has implemented SafeSport training?and created educational materials that encourage members to contact law enforcement first when reporting incidents of abuse.
