BEYOND THE WALLS: Sexual abuse in American men…

BEYOND THE WALLS: Sexual abuse in American men’s gymnastics:


Coaches and officials with USA Gymnastics, then known as the U.S. Gymnastics Federation, and U.S. Olympic Committee staff were aware of Moyer’s sexual abuse, Riegel alleges, but took no steps to stop it or report Moyer, a U.S. national team coach, to law enforcement during Riegel’s career.

“I was sexually abused by my personal coach from 1973 to 1981, and due to the absolute failures of the USGF (USAG) and USOC, it wiped away my youth, cut short my career, and left me with wounds that never heal,” Riegel wrote in a letter to USA Gymnastics and SafeSport last October.

Neither location nor occasion deterred Moyer’s abuse, said Riegel, speaking publicly on the record for the first time about his alleged abuse. The abuse took place at Moyer’s apartment, Riegel alleges, at local hotels and racquet clubs, at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, the U.S. Military and U.S. Air Force academies, the night before Riegel, at 12, was launched onto the global stage at Madison Square Garden, at U.S. championships, and while competing for the U.S. national team at international competitions in foreign countries.

“It was never ending,” Riegel said.
