Natalie Coughlin, the most decorated U.S. female Olympian, will appear on “Undeniable” a sports talk show with Joe Buck on Tuesday and will discuss many topics with the sportscaster, including the issues of emotional abuse and body shaming.
Several clips of the interview were released ahead of the show’s airing on the AT&T Audience Network, most notably issues Coughlin had with coach Ray Mitchell early in her career.
Body shaming is something that has always been an issue in for a sport in which swimsuits are the uniform. It is easy for swimmers to compare their bodies with their peers, even easier when a coach or parent points out those differences.
Coughlin, now 35 and pregnant with her first child, said Mitchell did that to her and her teammates and it was a “toxic environment.”
