The Orange County Register brought light to the Mission Viejo Nadadores swim team up and coming young coach Daniel Ad’m Dunesbury and his alleged relationship with a sixteen-year-old swimmer that occurred back in 2006.  Click here to read the entire article.  

Here is the Safe4Athletes response to both the article and the Mission Viejo response. 

Sexual abuse in sports of a young athlete is often not immediately recognized or understood, however over time everyone around the situation is affected in some way shape or form.

This situation is a perfect example why it is difficult for a young girl to speak up about the abuse. This response focuses on even the alleged victim unwillingness to come forward  (Risk reward for the girl, there isn't any for saying something happened) and the timeline as to how they reacted.
