According to reports, former USA Swimming team coach Sean Hutchison is under investigation for allegedly taking nude photographs of one of his swimmers when she was a teen. However, Kukors goes on to say that Hutchison did not start to sexually abuse her until she was 16. All three "unequivocably" denied the existence of a sexual or romantic relationship at the time, according to USA Swimming. "And as long as I swam fast, it seemed easy enough for the organizations that have masterfully buried these tragedies for years, to once again brush off the rumors". It said Kukors, her sister and Hutchison denied there was any relationship.

"I absolutely deny having any sexual or romantic relationship with her before she was old enough to legally make those decisions for herself", he said in the statement, which was provided by attorney Brad Meryhew. "Prior to that time, I did nothing to "groom" her". "We probably should have known at the time that something was going on but I never thought anything of it. but looking back on it now and her meeting a coach in a hotel room, it makes you wonder now what was going on".

Hutchinson did leave. He returned to Seattle to the swim club he owned - King Aquatics. At that time, Rich Rodriguez had just been fired as football coach at the University of Arizona amid allegations of sexual harassment, Nassar hadn't been sentenced yet, and we were days from learning just how deep the corruption would run at Michigan State.

"Last night's news broke our collective hearts", KING Aquatic Club Head Coach Michael Brooks said in a statement.

However, Hoelzer said Hutchison was partly why she retired in 2010. I'd never been physical with anyone before but I now found myself alone with him, engaging in sexual acts and trying to hide my embarrassment when he sat in the women's locker room and watched me shower.

"I'd like to tell you it only happened a few times, but that was just the beginning of an extensive, abusive, and incredibly manipulative relationship that spanned the better part of the next decade of my life", Kukors wrote on her website.

The governing body said it first learned of the allegations of sexual abuse while Kukors was a minor when she went public this week. "That their parents, mentors, and guardians are better able to spot the signs of grooming and realize its tragic consequences before it's too late".

It is alleged he abused his powers as Kukors' coach, grooming her and then sexually abusing her as a teenager.

The SeattlePI reports investigators with a Homeland Security taskforce searched Sean Hutchison's Seattle apartment Tuesday, recovering electronic devices they say may contain evidence.

USA authorities and police executed a search warrant at his Seattle apartment this week, seizing electronic devices.

Former USA Swimming national team coach Sean Hutchison faces a formal investigation as allegations of sexual abuse of a former team member surfaced.

"With the denials from both parties, the investigation provided no basis to conclude that a Code of Conduct violation occurred, and the case was closed", Isabelle McLemore, a spokesperson for USA Swimming said in a statement.

USA Swimming was among several Olympic sports organisations to receive a letter recently from the House Committee on Energy and Commerce requesting information about sex abuse prevention.

Former US Olympic swimmer accuses her former national team coach of sexually abusing her when she was 16.

The investigation began January 23 when police in the Seattle suburb of Des Moines got a report about sex crimes at its city pool.
