I'm not a sailor. You caught me.
And look, I'm not saying that it's wrong for these girls or the other coaches or parents or whoever to show support for Liukin. I guess I'm just having a hard time seeing how he is a victim in all of this. No one is suggesting he lose his gyms or be put on the ineligible list or be sent to jail. I haven't even seen him named in any of the lawsuits. He chose (based on his own statement) to step down from a job. Sometimes when you are a highly visible figure inside of an organization that screws up so royally that's going to happen. I, like 99% of the gymnastics community, have never met Valeri Liukin. Therefore, I have to go off of the comments made by his former gymnasts. Some have had nothing but praise, some have been very critical. Taking this as a whole I feel that him stepping down was the right choice to help USAG move on with a fresh start. I don't wish any ill will on the guy and I'm sure he will continue with a perfectly successful career as a gymnastics coach. If he was wronged in some way then he should probably start speaking up for himself because he has been essentially silent throughout this entire process.
