When I was a graduate TA at an American (public) university, two top basketball players failed every exam and most of the quizzes in a biology class I taught. I tried to fail them for that semester, but someone from the athletic department intervened, and I was required by the professor in charge to change the grades to whatever they needed to remain eligible to play basketball during the next semester. It seemed to be common practice. I wasn't the only grad student in my class forced to raise grades for athletes.
