Walter Winkler was upgraded from an interim ban to a permanent ban by the U.S. Center for SafeSport, while two others were given interim sanctions.
Winkler, of Cheyenne, Wyoming, was previously included in the Safesport database under “interim measure – restriction.” He was sanctioned for allegations of misconduct as of February 21, 2018.
But earlier this month, Winkler pleaded guilty to sexual abuse of a minor, admitting to having inappropriate sexual relationships with two minors in the 1990s.
He’s now been upgraded in the SafeSport database from the former interim restriction to a “permanently ineligible” tag. His entry now shows “criminal disposition – involving a minor” instead of the former allegations of misconduct. His entry does still carry the “subject to appeal / not yet final” tag, which typically means he could still appeal the Center for SafeSport’s decision.
Gary Goodner II
Gary Goodner II has been added to the database for allegations of misconduct. He is under an “interim measure – restriction.” Goodner II is not to be confused with Gary Goodner, Sr, his father, who is already permanently banned by the U.S. Center for SafeSport for sexual misconduct.
Both Goodner, Sr and Gooder II are listed as being from Tampa, Florida. Goodner, Sr was a Puerto Rican Olympian and former coach with Tampa Bay Aquaics, Flagler County Swim Team and Flagler Palm Coast High School, among others. He was banned in late 2014.
Goodner II is listed as the president and head coach of Team Velocity Swimming out of Temple Terrace, Florida.
The Center’s database now lists Savannah Reis of Brandon, Mississippi. Reis is under an interim measure – suspension for allegations of misconduct. Reis was added to the database on July 24.
A Madison County Journal story from 2014 lists a Savanna Reis as coaching PEAQ swim team along with her husband. And a team photo in The Northside Sun lists Savannah Reis as a coach in the caption.
