Eligibility Actions

    USOPC Athlete Safety Homepage

    The following USOPC Participants (as defined in the USOPC Athlete Safety Policy) are either subject to certain temporary restrictions issued by the U.S. Center for SafeSport (the Center) pending investigation, or have been suspended (temporarily or otherwise) or deemed ineligible by the Center or the USOPC.

    This list reflects individuals with current eligibility actions, and it is not intended to be a historical record of individuals who may have had previous eligibility actions. The below information does not include eligibility actions that do not affect the individual’s ability to participate in sport (i.e., probation), eligibility actions involving a minor, or eligibility actions that resulted when the individual was a minor. For these reasons, the list is not exhaustive and should be used to supplement other research.

    For individuals with an action deemed “Temporary,” the matter is currently under investigation, and has not been adjudicated.

    To view other individuals with current eligibility actions in the Olympic & Paralympic Movement, please refer to the specific NGB or visit the U.S. Center for SafeSport’s Centralized Disciplinary Database.

    The following individuals have eligibility actions issued by the USOPC. Should you become aware of a violation of these eligibility actions, please report immediately to the USOPC.
