    I believe almost all coaches who get these kids at a young age have sexually abused them. All these Olympic athletes are emotionally vulnerable and the parents turn the kids over to coaches when they are about 6-8 years old. The kids surrender everything to the coach to succeed. Stories are always coming out about the abuse but most of it is covered up. It is the Olympics dirty little secret. There are probably dozens of Sandusky's coaching future olympic athletes. These parents will do anything to get their kids a medal.

    Much about the industry that drives Olympic athletes is seedy and disturbing.

    You have some countries like China, Russia, N. Korea, ect. where the state is heavily involved in "recruiting" children and "creating"(or trying to) future Olympians. They're trying to cherrypick the "athletes" at age 3 or 4 and pluck them from their families and send them off to the factory to separate the wheat from the chaff and start "molding" them.

    It's bizarre.

    Then you have what is common in the USA and similar countries where you have the deranged parents and abusive coaches they hand them over to molding children into future Olympic athletes for their own ego and glory potential earnings.

    Crazy parents or totalitarian states aren't the driving forces behind all of them of course but seems pretty common.

    The coaches get paid in plugs.

    Parents hand their kids over to other people.
