by Bryan Olmstaed

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
This is a coach and a father's eyewitness account of the mistreatment and multiple code of conduct violations by Mississippi Swimming against a young swimmer. USA Swimming refused to allow the child or the parents to tell what happened. Mississippi Swimming went to great lengths to silence the swimmer and later targets her younger sister. This book contains multiple types of supporting documents and other eyewitness letters to support the authors claims.
This is a true story of a young girl who decides to try competitive swimming. In a short time she becomes one of her team's best swimmers. However, when she outshines the coach's daughter, the trouble begins. You will not believe the lengths that the coach and his allies go to push the young girl out of swim. The swimming organization would not even allow the young girl to tell her side of the story. Silence was all they wanted from her. Her family went through great effort to help the young girl fight. Although she was never allowed her voice, this book is her voice.
