Over the past few weeks it has been reported that many companies have decided to pull their financial support from USA Gymnastics due to all the controversy surrounding the Larry Nassar fiasco.
The Orange County Register first reported in the beginning of December that Kellogg’s and Proctor and Gamble were going to pull their support from USA Gymnastics.
Proctor and Gamble has been the leading financial sponsor for National Championships for the past 5 years. According to ESPN.com, Proctor and Gamble is currently evaluating their options to renew their partnership with USA Gymnastics or not.
After the past couple of Olympic Games, Kellogg’s has sponsored the Kellogg’s Tour of Gymnastics Champions. With 2 more years to go before the next Olympics, maybe Kellogg’s will reconsider and show their support of our Olympic Athletes.
The following is part of a statement provided to ESPN;
“Procter & Gamble and Kellogg’s have decided they can no longer support an organization which refuses to take responsibility for the crimes committed by their National Team doctor and their failure to warn others of his criminal conduct,” the three said in a statement.”
