USA Gymnastics announces members of the 2018-19 USA Gymnastics Athletes’ Council:

5 new members were added as USAG Athlete Representatives. So the members of the Athletes’ Council are now:

  • Women’s gymnastics: Ivana Hong (2018-21), Terin Humphrey (2014-19)
  • Men’s gymnastics: Sho Nakamori (2016-19), Steve Legendre (2018-21)
  • Rhythmic gymnastics: Ava Gehringer (2016-19), Rebecca Sereda (2018-21)
  • Trampoline and tumbling: Alex Renkert (2018-21), Austin White (2016-19)
  • Acrobatic gymnastics: Dylan Maurer (2016-19), Jessica Renteria (2018-21)
  • USOC AAC: Nastia Liukin (2017-20)
  • USOC AAC Alternate: Sho Nakamori (2017-20)

Very glad to see Steven Legendre was made an athlete representative, since he was outspoken about Vitaly Marinich, former head coach of MAG at USOTC, sexually assaulting his wife and USAG allowing him to remain a coach throughout Rio and quietly retire/step down, making people think he was let go of due to US MAG’s performance in Rio instead of sexual assault. I hope Ivana is a much better at her job than the awful Terin Humphrey. Also, I didn’t know Nastia had an official position as part of the Athletes’ Council. That makes her dismissal of the abuse from Valeri and Nassar more concerning…

Paul Parilla also made this statement about those who will be leaving the council:

“On behalf of USA Gymnastics and the Board, I want to thank David for
his service as the Council chairman,” said Paul Parilla, chairman of the
USA Gymnastics Board of Directors.  “David has been a proactive and
involved representative for the athletes, as well as leading the efforts
of the Council. We appreciate all that he has done for the athletes and
the organization. We also want to express our appreciation for the
other athletes who have fulfilled their terms on the Athletes’ Council,
Nicole Barrilleaux for acrobatic gymnastics, Kalon Ludvigson for
trampoline and tumbling, and Syndey Sachs for rhythmic gymnastics.”

… Also how has Paul Parilla not been fired yet??? More people than Steve Penny need to go and Parilla is one of the first that should be out.
