I was taught to hide the pain: Former gymnast Abby Pearson

Abby Pearson, who is a former gymnast has claimed that she was sexually and emotionally tormented by her Canadian coaches. She said she was being groomed and her coach made inappropriate advances towards her, making her do things against her will, whether it was in private or during practises. Her allegation have come up against Dave Brubaker and Elizabeth Brubaker. Dave was the coach fo the 2016 Canada Olympics gymnast team, but he has been banned now.

The abuse never stopped. My male coach would regularly snap the back of my sports bras when I started wearing them. I was taught that gaining weight and puberty were a bad thing. Injuries were rarely taken seriously, and I was taught to hide the pain
