If you spend any time reading EN today (aside from this News & Notes post) I implore you to give Maggie Deatrick’s ‘A Plea for Transparency‘ a read. Let’s keep pushing and fighting to keep this sport safe and sustainable.
“USEF, USEA, can you hear us? Are you investigating? Are you looking into these deaths behind closed doors? Is our sport learning anything from these deaths? And if we are, will you please let us also learn?
I know nothing about what led to the deaths of these women. I cannot learn from their tragedies and cannot take measures to ensure that I do not share their fate for the same reasons. I do not know if there is a common thread or if each died due to different factors.
I might be making the same mistakes. I might die because of them.
Please let me learn, so that I might not become one of these women.”
