Sport Sex Scandals: A Comparison Between Penn State and USA Gymnastics

  • Linda Fuller

Abstract

Beginning with a broad perspective on sport sex scandals, this critical commentary compares two of the worst: the 2012 Penn State child sex abuse scandal by a football coach and the 2019 revelations about sexual assault on more than 368 female gymnasts by their national team doctor and how, in both cases, cover-ups and failure to take action were prevalent.
