Rick Curl, former swim coach and founder of the prominent Curl-Burke Swim Club in the Washington, D.C. area resigns amid scandal

Amid the excitement of the Olympic games, one former Olympic hopeful is speaking out on the darker side of youth sports. Kelley Currin says she was molested as a teen by Rick Curl, her former swim coach and founder of the prominent Curl-Burke Swim Club in the Washington, D.C. area. Currin tells Michel Martin how the abuse began and ended, why the family did not pursue criminal charges, and her advice for parents of young athletes to spot potential predators.

This covers sensitive material and may not be comfortable for some listeners.
