Olympic Gestapo Puts Kibosh on Photo Sharing, Pisses Off Kate Grace’s Bfriend

Kate Grace
This is one of the photos of Kate Grace the US Olympic Committee asked a sponsor to remove from social media.

Team USA welcomed my girlfriend Kate Grace to the team by making her support system of 5 years, Oiselle, delete all images of her winning the USA Olympic Trials and realizing her Olympic Dream.
I ask you to please SHARE this post to make people aware of the behind the scenes bullying that Team USA does to the athletes chasing their dreams and the people and companies that are there for them during the years of training when no one else is.

 

This company, these people, have stuck with her through all the highs and lows that come with chasing the Olympic Dream. They have not only supported her financially, but have been part of her emotional bed rock for all these years and they are there for her now as she prepares to try to bring home an Olympic Medal for her country.

They posted photos on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and their website of her dream of making the Olympic Team come true. Now, the so called champions of the U.S. Olympic Dream Team USA are forcing (legal threats) Oiselle to delete the evidence of this magical moment from all their social channels and website. Erasing this amazing moment that wouldn’t have happened with out them from internet history.

This is one of the photos they posted as they saw her for the first time after she made the Olympic Team. If this doesn’t embody the joy and Olympic spirit I don’t know what does.
