Hanney said: “I think when the money gets involved, people will say and do different things. I think there’s a lot of money out of it.
The arbitrator’s decision on Haney’s appeal is expected in the coming days, with one of his lawyers, Steven Altman. He said he hoped that Hanney’s suspension would be rescinded because the USA Gymnastics case hearing was biased and flawed, and “as a practical matter, the kangaroo court.” Allman said that seven of Honey’s charges were not even trained by him, and that Jim offered a fun atmosphere during intense training that usually required mastering the sport’s daring moves.
“When they were doing gymnastics, it was serious,” Altman said. “They worked on life-threatening skills for the day.”
USA Gymnastics said in an email statement Sunday that Haney’s hearing was fair and impartial, and to comply with the requirements of the organization’s procedures, as well as the law that oversees the Olympic Games in the United States.
Hanny admitted that she could be intense in the gym. But she said that most of the time “everyone is smiling and laughing and playing music.” She carefully created an atmosphere in the gym, she said, knowing that parents had given her time with her children from morning to evening. The program, Hanney said, involves closely monitoring online learning, holding a certified teacher during the day, and emphasizing safety.
As a young gymnast, training in an elite program for a while, Haney worked with hardy coaches who yelled at the girls, missed them, and made them step up daily, then the gym. Listed the weight of all on the bulletin board. In order for the girls to lose their weight, the coach forced them to wear rubber suits or 20-pound belts and jog around the gym, she said.
“It didn’t bother me and didn’t bother me, but the kids next to me, it could really bother and scare them,” he said, adding that he never lost the weight of his gymnast And forced them to lose weight. “I think what I’ve learned in the last year is that a lot of it comes into perspective. Every man. Every athlete. Every coach. They have their own perspective of things.”
