NEW YORK - Olympic swimmer Ariana Kukors of the United States said in an emotional interview on Monday that her former coach "stole so much" from her in the decade she alleges he sexually abused her starting when she was a minor.

Kukors, 28, told Associated Press that she can't get the time back but she can speak out so others recognize the signs of people grooming others for abuse or similar misconduct.

"If I save one person who's currently being groomed, if I have a dialogue with one parent about something that they think is alarming with their child and their coach. If I do that, this is worth it - as painful as it is," Kukors said through tears in New York.
