U.S. Speedskating faces request for comprehensive audit 2013.02.23 18:06
U.S. Speedskating once again finds itself in a potentially slippery situation after a demand for a comprehensive audit of the national governing body's financial records. Patricia Rodowsky, a paralegal and the mother of short track speedskater Jim Rodowsky, sent U.S. Olympic Committee CEO Scott Blackmun a letter on Thursday requesting the audit.
"I am personally aware that numerous parents of the athlete grievants, and the athletes' many other supporters, join me in this request," Rodowsky wrote, according to a copy of the letter obtained by USA TODAY Sports.
Representatives of the USOC could not immediately be reached for comment Friday.
A grievance filed last August by a group of short track skaters claimed that U.S. Speedskating does not fulfill its responsibilities as a national governing body and does not comply with the Ted Stevens Olympic and Amateur Sports Act. The 50-page grievance document called into question the management structure of the federation It also alleges U.S. Speedskating filed fraudulent tax returns.
