USA Today reported that “U.S. Center for SafeSport delivered a chilling assessment of sexual misconduct in the sport of figure skating . . . saying that in the course of its work on sexual misconduct allegations against the late national pairs champion . . . , as well as other figure skating cases, it discovered ‘a culture in figure skating that allowed grooming and abuse to go unchecked for too long.’” It was further reported that a SafeSport spokesperson stated “If you want to change the culture of this sport, people have to come forward. All covered individuals (USFS member coaches, staff, board members and officials, among others) have an obligation under the Code to report, and the Center does enforce that obligation. As we’ve seen with gymnastics, it takes brave people speaking up and enough of them to get a culture shift.”
