"Track and Fear" on ABC 20-20: n Olympic female shotputter and her coach

ABC 20-20 episode “Track and Fear” presented the story of female shotputter Baillie Gibson’s relationship with her coach, Craig Carter at the University of Arizona.  View link

The litigation goes both ways in this case, but it is timely given all the recent attention to sexual harassment.  It would be inappropriate for an intimate relationship with a coach to happen anyway even when consensual.

ESPN has a more detailed account of the event  as quoted by the New York Post I May 2017.
