In response to recent USA Badminton news:

On Wednesday, USA Badminton became one of several National Governing Bodies to appear in the news recently regarding a letter from the USOC.

USA Badminton was originally audited by the USOC in 2018. Another audit was completed in early 2019 and it has been determined that USAB has already made significant progress and substantial improvements in the area of athlete safety. Athlete safety is of the utmost importance for USA Badminton and we will continue to make improvements to our processes and systems to move in the right direction. 

USAB will continue to work with USOC and is committed to doing what it takes to uphold the high standards of excellence required as a National Governing Body in the United States.
