After Sex Abuse Scandal, USA Swimming Approves Athlete Protection Measures

"What concerns me is we seem to have forgotten our youth members," Saltzstein wrote. "Instead of really focusing on child protection or even following through on the basics, we seem to be worried about the image and how the sport works."

Saltzstein alleged that USA Swimming did not renominate him after he spoke out and filed a complaint with the U.S. Olympic Committee.

USA Swimming denied that Saltzstein had been dropped as retaliation, saying in a statement, "The arbitrator's decision in this case was not in any way based on Mr. Saltzstein's original complaint that USA Swimming retaliated against him because of his position on USA Swimming's response to allegations of sexual misconduct by swimming coaches. In fact, during the hearing, [Saltzstein] withdrew his retaliation claim after his counsel admitted that they had put on no evidence of retaliation."
