I mean, maybe there will be legit allegations in the future - but really - have we now gone so far down the rabbit hole that we are throwing a coach onto the cancel pile for encouraging healthy eating?
Reading some of the comments is kinda crazy, to me. People are tossing out their old signed photos of Elise. For what? Because she didn’t want the gymnasts to have extra bread with their meals. Because she swapped pasta for quinoa…?
At some point - someone has to stand up and say gymnastics is a dangerous sport, and adding unnecessary weight can do dangerous things. Eating healthily is important from a safety standpoint. It’s not like she’s denying them water! Or starving them! Bread is generally not healthy! There are better more productive carbs out there! She’s not Satan for saying no bread!
Why is Elise being thrown under the bus for this? This kind of hysteria undermines the actual abuse that’s going on in hundreds of gyms all over the world.
Tell me I’m wrong if I’m wrong. But I feel bad for Elise (SUBJECT TO this being the whole extent of the allegations against her).
What do you guys think?
As a side point, I’m actually really disliking the discourse on r/gymnastics. The moderators are so one-minded that any balanced discussion which is welcomed on here is shut down on there without any explanation at all.
