A prominent D.C.-area swim coach was arrested Thursday and charged with child abuse over allegations that he molested a female he once coached for several years in the 1980s.
Authorities began investigating Mr. Curl shortly after the story ran, and the report led USA Swimming to issue a lifetime ban against him last month.
The swim club, which has trained Olympic swimmers including 1996 and 2000 gold medalist Tom Dolan and 2012 gold medalist Katie Ledecky, changed its name to the Nation’s Capital Swim Club following the scandal.
