Judo Olympian Alleges Molestation by Official

Ronda Rousey, recently named to the Judo Olympic team at 70 kg, alleged on her blog that Fletcher Thornton, Director of Standards and Certification, molested several female athletes. When discussing the refs at the Olympic Trials, she writes:

Everyone was up in arms about Daniel Doyle, but USA judo didn’t bat an eyelash at Fletcher Thornton’s DOZENS of documented accusations of molesting young girls. One of our “A” referees even covered his eyes and refused to look at the police reports these girls filed.

Commenters went on to applaud Rousey for speaking up about the problem. Rousey maintains that she is talking about the problem now because as an Olympian, she is in a position to speak the truth. USA Judo declined comment.
