U.S. Olympic Committee moves to revoke USA Gymnastics' status as national governing body

The U.S. Olympic Committee on Monday moved to oust USA Gymnastics as the sport's governing body.
USA Gymnastics has been criticized for the way it responded to several scandals, including longtime team doctor Larry Nassar pleading guilty to molesting 10 gymnasts. In a statement, USOC CEO Sarah Hirshland said USA Gymnastics has unsuccessfully tried to "change its culture, to rebuild its leadership, and to effectively serve its membership." USOC has been working closely with the board of USA Gymnastics, but it's still struggling, and that is "not fair to gymnasts around the country." USA Gymnastics has had two CEOs over the last year, with interim CEO Mary Bono, a former Republican congresswoman, stepping down last month amid pressure.
A three-person panel will now hold a hearing, then issue a report to the USOC board recommending whether or not USA Gymnastics should be stripped of its recognition as governing body. The USOC board will make the final decision.
