Volleyball Australia apologises for "environment of fear"

Volleyball Australia issued a public apology on Thursday for creating an "environment of fear" that saw some players self-harm and others turn to substance abuse, with the impacts still felt decades later. The sport's governing body acknowledged that former athletes with the Australian indoor women's team, some as young as 14, were subjected to punitive training methods and body-shaming.
