COACHES’ ASSOCIATION RESPONDS TO PUBLIC, DERAGATORY COMMENTS
BOWLING GREEN, OHIO (February 10, 2020) – In response to comments made by an analyst during Saturday’s live broadcast of the Arkansas vs. Missouri men’s basketball game, the coaches’ association released the following statement today:
“The Women's Collegiate Gymnastics Association denounces the objectification of our student-athletes. Our women are excellent students, community leaders, and athletes. Reducing their skill and dedication to a gymnastics uniform is insulting our student-athletes and women athletes everywhere.”
The WCGA is the advocate for women’s collegiate gymnastics.
