‘Athlete A’ Netflix Documentary: A Disturbing Look at the USA Gymnastics Scandal


Last month I caught Athlete A Netflix Documentary - 2020. The documentary follows the Indianapolis Star reporters that broke the story about USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar's abuse and hear from gymnasts. I followed the story when it broke - not as closely, so I didn't know coaches were the original issue of abuse complaints. Through the documentary, you find there is an entire culture of hidden abuses and complete and total lack of concern for the girl's wellbeing. Their only concern was WINNING. Unfortunately, this is indicative of our culture today. Destruction of souls is okay as long as the ultimate objective is achieved: WINNING, MAKING MORE MONEY, BEING MORE POPULAR, etc. etc. WHO ARE WE??? Check it out when you have a moment. It is thorough, compelling and quite disturbing. #spmgmedia
