小编摘要:美国体坛,尤其是游泳和体操等行业长期以来不断传出教练性侵队员的丑闻。近日,美国前国家女子体操队主教练唐·彼得斯被证实曾性骚扰两名队员,已被美国体操协会禁止终身执教,他在协会名人堂中的位置同时也被清除。

导读美国体操协会上周举行了纪律听证会,两名在彼得斯手下受训的、当年17、8岁的队员证实她们彼得斯与她们发生过性关系。美体操协会随后宣布了对彼得斯的终身禁教决定。不过,根据加州法律,由于诉讼时效已过,彼得斯性骚扰队员一案不会被提起公诉。彼得斯此前已宣布退出教练岗位并辞去了俱乐部主任一职。

 

A former Olympic gymnastics coach accused of sexually abusing two athletes in the 1980s has been banned for life by USA Gymnastics and his place in the federation's Hall of Fame revoked.

Don Peters, head coach of the 1984 U.S.women's Olympic team, was declared "permanently ineligible" after a disciplinary hearing by USA Gymnastics last week. Peters has already resigned from his coaching and director positions at his SCATS gym in Huntington Beach,Calif., and his ban will be published in USA Gymnastics' magazine and on its website.

Two former gymnasts told the Orange County Register that Peters sexually abused them in the 1980s, when they were teenagers. In a Register story on Sept. 25, Doe Yamashiro, a former U.S.national team and SCATS member, said Peters began fondling her in 1986, when she was 16, and had sexual intercourse with her when she was 17. A second woman, who asked that her name not be used, told the Register that Peters had sex with her in 1985 when she was 18.

The alleged abuse can't be prosecuted under California law because the statute of limitation has expired.

Peters was one of the country's top coaches in the 1980s, and his SCATS gym produced several national team members. He was head coach of the U.S. team at the 1984 Olympics in Los Angeles, where the Americans won eight medals, including Mary Lou Retton's gold in the all-around.

USA Gymnastics requires its professional members, which include coaches and gym owners, to undergo criminal background checks every two years. The federation also has a Participant Welfare Policy that includes standards of behavior for coaches and staff members as well as reporting procedures if abuse is suspected. Sanctions for those who violate USA Gymnastics' code of conduct include termination of membership and/or a lifetime ban.
