Holyoke swim coach accused of rape, petition reveals nation-wide abuse


A Westfield mother is taking her daughter’s story of rape public.

Monica Strzempko’s daughter, Anna, alleges she was raped for two and a half years at the hands of a local swim coach.

But Anna’s story of alleged sexual abuse is just part of what appears to be a nation-wide problem in the world of swimming.

“I remember once Anna told me it was like cocaine, she would do anything for his approval,” Monica said.
