The interim President of USA Gymnastics is resigning only days after getting the job. President and CEO Mary Bono is defending her now-deleted September tweet where she had marked out the Nike logo on her shoes after Nike hired Colin Kaepernick as a spokesman. Olympic champion Simone Biles, who is sponsored by Nike, called Bono out yesterday on the social media platform for her post.
However, Bono and USA Gymnastics had already been under fire as the former California Republican Congresswoman used to work for the law firm representing disgraced and jailed former Olympic doctor Larry Nassar. Biles, along with her former teammate Aly Raisman, were among those who publicly voiced their dissatisfaction.
