The Vieth report has been released: [Link]
I am going to "toot my horn" and a "very large tuba" for the rest of you who have contributed to this subject...
I am happy to say that most if not all changes that were suggested on this blog are within the Vieth report begging for immediate implementation. Well done guys!
The past two months have been difficult for me; (I have an eventful life) and these recommendations within this report has made a great start to my new year.
To be clear these changes, soon to be taking place within USA Swimming, were brought about by the victims, the disenfranchised coaches, an ex-board member, the Safe Sport arm of USA Swimming who in the last three years has had swim uphill against internal politics, and finally you the readers.
I thank all the readers who debated me, schooled me, informed me as to how child protection should be done. I even thank the those that posted anonymous or overt insults for you kept this topic going and made me look even more credible despite my lousy spelling and grammar.
It's now time to blog about swim workouts, jellyfish, and racing.
