Famous Athletes Convicted of Sexual Assault

A list of famous athletes who have been convicted of sexual assault or related crimes, including rape. Both professional and amateur athletes have been included, although amateurs on this list must have competed in the Olympics, or some other equal level of competition and be somewhat recognizable to the public.
