  • Gymnast Aly Raisman at Fenway Park last year

The six-time Olympic medalist told 60 Minutes that she first spoke to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about the disgraced doctor in 2016, and doesn't understand why it took so long for the allegations to go public.

The Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman says she was sexually abused by a former USA Gymnastics team doctor. Raisman is the second US gymnast in the past month to accuse Nassar of abuse, with McKayla Maroney making similar claims in mid-October.

In the interview, Raisman said she wants help change the culture for future gymnasts.

"Why are we looking at why didn't the girls speak up?" "I need this, '" Raisman said in an interview with The Associated Press and USA Today in August during the 2017 national championships. He has been sued by over 130 women, and is in MI awaiting trial for over 22 state charges, including the possession of child pornography.

"What did USA Gymnastics do, and Larry Nassar do, to manipulate these girls so much that they are so afraid to speak up?"

White House urges Moore to leave Senate race if sex allegations true
Moore explained that he rejects calls for him to recuse himself from the Senate race because he "had nothing to do with this". The state Republican Party has the power to disqualify Moore from the election, according to the Alabama secretary of state.

Raisman told "60 Minutes" she was 15 when she was first treated by Dr. Larry Nassar, who spent more than two decades working with athletes at USA Gymnastics. I can't. Every time I look at them, every time I see them smiling, I just think ...

She went on to be the captain of the 2012 and 2016 Olympic teams.

Raisman, the captain of the 2012 and 2016 Olympic gold-medal winning teams, details the abuse in her book "Fierce", which will be released on Tuesday. "USA Gymnastics is very sorry that any athlete has been harmed..." the statement said.

In her tweet, Maroney mentioned a specific instance of sexual abuse when she was 15 years old, in which she alleges Nassar gave her a sleeping pill on a team flight and assaulted her in his hotel room upon landing.

Clubs are now "required to report child abuse or neglect, including sexual misconduct, to proper authorities, including the U.S. Center for SafeSport and law enforcement authorities". He was in a position of power, actually named the national medical coordinator for USA Gymnastics up until the summer of 2015. Raisman and Maroney have both said that Nassar's harassment came in the form of "treatments".

Magic Leap , which has been quietly working on its own augmented reality hardware, is thought to be targeting consumers instead. That new operating system, internally called "rOS" for "reality operating system", is based on iOS.

Nassar was a trainer with USA Gymnastics as far back as 1986.

"In the previous year, Aly has become an advocate for many issues, and sharing her personal experience of abuse takes great courage", USA Gymnastics said. "And then he just continued to go into more and more intimate places", Jessica Howard, who suffered from severe hip problems when she was a gymnast, told CBS' 60 Minutes in an episode that aired February 17.

Dantzscher also filed a lawsuit against Nassar in California last September as "Jane Doe".

The USA Gymnastics ordered a review last fall and recently adopted a new "safe sport policy" that requires "mandatory reporting" of suspicions of sexual abuse and also sets standards to "prevent inappropriate interaction" between athletes and adults. Part of Stark's mandate is educating members on rules, educational programs, reporting and adjudication services.
