COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A former diver is suing USA Diving over allegations a coach sexually abused her beginning when she was 16.

Estee Pryor says she and a 27-year-old coach began having sex within a week of him approaching her and complimenting her.

The now 21-year-old Pryor made her comments about former coach Will Bohonyi Tuesday to NBC's Megyn Kelly.

Pryor is one of two former divers suing USA Diving, accusing the national governing body of ignoring or obstructing inquiries into the sex abuse allegations.

The lawsuit names Indianapolis-based USA Diving, the Ohio State University Diving Club and Bohonyi.

Court records list Bohonyi as representing himself without providing contact information. A message was left Tuesday at a cellphone number listed as his.
