Key critic during time of USOC turmoil steps down

One of the key critics of the U.S. Olympic Committee during its
CEO switch has left his job as the leader of USA Triathlon.

The federation announced the departure of executive director
Skip Gilbert in a brief news release, offering no explanation.

Gilbert also leads the council of America’s national governing
bodies, though his future role there was not explained. He did not
immediately return messages left by The Associated Press.

Gilbert is best known for criticizing the ouster of Jim Scherr
as CEO at the USOC. He commissioned a questionnaire among NGB
leaders that led to a harsh rebuke of Scherr’s successor, Stephanie
Streeter.
