The story is from over 3 years ago. It's still an issue? I agree wiith letting parents watch. IMO it is not a good enough reason to say that the kids will get distracted - they should be taught not to get distracted and focus. They need the same skill during competition the most, especially when there isn't a coach ready to spot/catch any mistake right next to them.

Unfortunately, coaches misconduct does happen, in any sport, not just gymnastics. There is another story out today about a coach sexually abusing a gymnast and telling her to use cocaine to lose weight at a well-known gym club WOGA in Texas, not by the owners, by someone they have hired.

The gymnasts can tell the difference between the correct coach spot and an inappropriate one. Best to listen to the kids also!
