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.
