Next Up: He was our friend…Surviving a Sexual Predator

UNITED KINGDOM, Jan. 6, 2021 /PRNewswire/ – The 2018 sentencing hearing of Larry Nassar, team physician of the USA gymnastics programme, marked the end of two decades of sexual abuse of hundreds of young female athletes. It did not end the plight of survivors trying to come to terms with what happened.

In this free webinar, available globally, we will be streaming At the Heart of Gold: Inside the USA Gymnastics Scandal, a documentary that tells the story through the voices of the survivors. After that, join our conversation with Trinea Gonczar, one of the survivors who takes center stage in the documentary, and producer Dr. Steven Ungerleider. Together, we will try to understand what happened, how it went on for so long, and how it has sparked a mission to make sport a safe space free of abuse.

Access to the stream will be provided three days in advance to attendees.

Date: Saturday, January 09th, 2021

Times: Livestream of the documentary 16h00 GMT 

Webinar presentation: 17h30 GMT
