The following statement is attributable to USOC Chief External Affairs Officer, Patrick Sandusky:

“We are aware of USA Gymnastics bankruptcy filing and we are reviewing the filing. Financial stability and viability are essential for a national governing body to operate in the best interests of the athletes.  We are reviewing the effects of the bankruptcy filing on the pending proceeding to revoke USA Gymnastics’ recognition as the national governing body for Olympic gymnastics in the United States.

As the leader of the Olympic community in the United States, the USOC is committed to fulfilling its responsibility and obligation to ensure that each organization accepted for membership as a national governing body has the capacity and capability to provide the support, protection, and services that we expect for all Olympic athletes in the United States.”
