Maddie Groves Latest Updates
Maddie Groves has pulled out of the Australian Olympic swimming trials just days before the event begins in Adelaide, saying her last-minute withdrawal should be a lesson to “all misogynistic perverts in sport”.
Groves, who won two silver medals at the Rio Games five years ago, was aiming to reach her second Olympics at the national trials, which start this weekend and run for six days. But the 26-year-old butterfly specialist, also a two times Commonwealth Games gold medallist, announced her decision not to compete in a social media post on Wednesday night.
In a separate message posted on Thursday “for emphasis” and to “make them pervs quake in fear from the number of people supporting a statement that threatens their existence”, she made allegations about her treatment by an unnamed individual involved in the sport.
“Let this be a lesson to all misogynistic perverts in sport and their boot lickers,” she wrote. “You can no longer exploit young women and girls, body shame or medically gaslight them and then expect them to represent you so you can earn your annual bonus. Time’s up.”
Swimming Australia has been contacted for comment. The AOC said it was not in a position to comment on Thursday.
Groves has made similar allegations in the past. In November last year, she alleged a person she worked with had made her feel “uncomfortable” by the way they looked at her in her swimming suit. Groves, who has endometriosis and adenomyosis, has also alleged she was body-shamed and told that she did not “deserve more help” following two surgeries.
In a social media post explaining her decision, Groves said: “Let this be a lesson to all misogynistic perverts… and their boot lickers… You can no longer exploit young women and girls, body shame or medically gaslight them and then expect them to represent you so you can earn your annual bonus.
