1976 Olympian Conrad Mainwaring is facing sexual abuse charges after a Los Angeles Police Department news release states that he allegedly sexually battered a male athlete “under the guise of physical therapy and mental focus training.”
When arrested, he was operating as a private track coach in West Los Angeles. Among the athletes he coached is hurdler Felix Sanchez, who won gold at Athens in 2004 and London in 2012. ESPN said Felix is not one of Mainwaring’s accusers.
An ESPN investigation into allegations against Mainwaring states that 31 different men, dating as far back as the 1970s and as recently as 2016, have named Mainwaring as their alleged predator.
ESPN reports that of the thirty-one men, 16 agreed to be named and described Mainwaring using his Olympic credentials along with his expertise in psychology and physiology to persuade boys and young men to train with him. The men allegedly told ESPN that Mainwaring “initiated sexual contact under the guise of mental training that focused on getting them to control and manipulate erections and testosterone levels as a means of improving athletic performance.”
