In next week’s issue of Sports Illustrated, Olympic Sports writer Kelli Anderson delves into an update of the latest in sexual abuse, which we’ve received a preview version of.
The information won’t be anything new to frequent readers of most swimming websites on the internet, like SwimSwam, but digs back from the beginning, basically, peeling through cases like Rick Curl and Everett Uchiyama. It concludes with a summary of the latest developments in the SB 131 bill in California that was vetoed by governor Jerry Brown.
At any rate, it’s a worthwhile recap of what’s happened so far in a publication that has been picking up steam on its coverage of swimming the past few weeks (primarily positive news, thankfully) so pick up a copy on newsstands this week if you’re interested in reading the perspective from a more mainstream publication. We won’t spoil the fun, but Sports Illustrated did get a comment from USA Swimming on what Uchiayama’s accuser told the organization after he was finally banned in 2010, which is something we haven’t heard before.
