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.
