An Australian national inquiry into child sex abuse switched its focus on Monday from the Catholic Church to the professional swimming community and how it reacted to allegations against two Olympic coaches.

The Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse was established in 2012 to investigate allegations of widespread pedophilia, mostly in the church.

Its hearings have covered harrowing claims of abuse involving places of worship, orphanages, community groups and schools.
