Geddert, who had ties to disgraced team doctor Larry Nassar, was charged with 20 counts of human trafficking, one count of first-degree sexual assault, one count of second-degree sexual assault, criminal enterprise and lying to a police officer, according to court documents filed in Eaton County, Michigan. "We had hoped that news of the criminal charges being brought against John Geddert would lead to justice through the legal process," the sport's U.S. governing body said in a statement on Friday. "With the news of his death by suicide, we share the feelings of shock, and our thoughts are with the gymnastics community as they grapple with the complex emotions of this week's events."
Myanmar's ambassador to the United Nations made an impassioned plea Friday for the international community to take the "strongest possible action" to end the junta's rule in the country. Kyaw Moe Tun's voice cracked with emotion as he spoke out against the military regime that ousted the nation's elected civilian government in on coup on February 1.It is extremely rare for a representative to break with the rulers of the country they represent during an address at the UN General Assembly.The ambassador even flashed the three-finger salute that has been used by pro-democracy protesters during street demonstrations against the junta, after concluding his speech with a message in Burmese."We need... the strongest possible action from the international community to immediately end the military coup, to stop oppressing the innocent people, to return the state power to the people, and to restore the democracy," he pleaded.Kyaw Moe Tun, his voice trembling, called on all member states to issue public statements strongly condemning the coup during the special meeting on Myanmar.He appealed for countries not to recognise the military regime or cooperate with it and asked them to demand that the junta respects last year's democratic elections.The envoy also urged nations to "take all stronger possible measures" to stop violent acts committed by security forces against peaceful demonstrators."We will continue to fight for a government, which is, of the people by the people, for the people," he said.'Cruel and inhumane' The diplomat's address was met with warm applause in the chamber, with diplomats quick to congratulate him."I applaud my colleague Ambassador Kyaw Moe Tun today on his courageous and powerful statement," tweeted Britain's ambassador Barbara Woodward.The last time an ambassador broke ranks with their country's ruler was in 2011 when the Libyan representative denounced then leader dictator Moamer Kadhafi.Earlier, the UN envoy to Myanmar Christine Schraner Burgener said she "strongly condemns" recent steps by the junta including "unacceptable" use of lethal force, and called for the international community to press for a return to democracy."There is no justification for the military's actions, and we must continue to call for the reversal of this impermissible situation, exhausting all collective and bilateral channels to restore Myanmar's path on democratic reform," she told the General Assembly via video link.The diplomat said she been blocked from visiting Myanmar by the military regime."It seems they want to continue making large-scale arrests. This is cruel and inhumane," she said."If there is any escalation in terms of military brutality -- and sadly as we have seen this before in Myanmar -- against people exercising their basic rights, let us act swiftly and collectively," Burgener added.US Ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield, making her first address in the chamber, said President Joe Biden's regime stands "in solidarity" with the Myanmar protesters."We will show the military that their actions have consequences. Violence against those exercising their human rights and fundamental freedoms is unacceptable," she said.China's ambassador to the UN, Zhang Jun, repeated his country's stance that the current events in Myanmar are "internal affairs.""The voice and measures taken by the international community should help the parties in Myanmar bridge their differences and solve problems, and avoid intensifying tensions and further complicating the situation," he said.(AFP)

After finishing up a two-year suspension as a result of testing positive for EPO, former UFC bantamweight champion and flyweight title challenger TJ Dillashaw is set to make his return to the octagon in the near future. Dillashaw spoke with former UFC fighter Mike Swick on his podcast on what could be next for the former 135-pound champion. “There’s been some talks right, but nothing can be announced yet,” Dillashaw said. “I’m in a good situation. I think everyone in the top five has called me out.” Dillashaw knows after a two-year suspension and a legacy to cement, he doesn't have much time to waste. “I wanna come back and fight the best. I’m 35 years old now,” Dillashaw said. “I wanna come back and prove I’m the best bantamweight of all time.” Whether it be an immediate title shot or a title eliminator, DIllashaw says he’s open to either of them. But a smart man knows if the opportunity is made available to Dillashaw, he’s going to take the title shot any day of the week. “I’m ready to go straight for the belt,” Dillashaw said. “I know that [Petr] Yan wants it. He’s already been vocally talking about it. We’ll see what happens on March 6 when he fights [Aljamain] Sterling.” Dillashaw isn't simply expecting that Yan, the current UFC bantamweight champion, is simply going to slide by in his first title defense against No. 1 ranked Sterling at UFC 259. “[Yan]’s got a tough test ahead of him,” Dillashaw said in reference to Sterling. Dillashaw then focused his sights on a potential championship bout between him and Yan. “That’s the fight he wants,” Dillashaw said. “I didn’t leave this sport by losing my belt. He knows that there’s a lot of speculation if he’s the real champ because he hasn’t beaten the real champion to get that belt.” As a recognizable name in mixed martial arts and potentially possessing the most impressive bantamweight resume in the UFC, many top contenders in the division are calling out Dillashaw. But according to him, Dillashaw is taking all comers. “Every person that’s called me out, I’ve said yes to to the UFC,” Dillashaw said. “As long as it’s someone that’s at the top of their game because I”m gonna climb up and get that belt back fast.” TRENDING > UFC Vegas 19 recap: Curtis Blaydes vs. Derrick Lewis Remember when Dana White said that TJ Dillashaw might just be the best bantamweight ever?
