USA Gymnastics Board Directors Resign Over Sexual Abuse Scandal

The executive leadership of USA Gymnastics’ board of directors has resigned in the wake of the sexual abuse scandal involving former US team doctor Larry Nassar, the governing body announced Monday.

Board of directors chairman Paul Parilla, vice chairman Jay Binder and treasurer Bitsy Kelley tendered resignations effective a day ago.

“We support their decisions to resign at this time,” said Kerry Perry, who was named president of USA Gymnastics in September.

“We believe this step will allow us to more effectively move forward in implementing change within our organization.” (AFP)
