Aly Raisman gets fierce with Nassar, USOC, and USA Gymnastics

Aly Raisman gets fierce with Nassar, USOC, and USA Gymnastics

Several of the victims, and now other lawmakers and public officials, have said that the school has not been transparent in how they handled complaints about Nassar and that President Lou Anna Simon to resign.

Raisman ended her speech by explaining the effect she hopes Nassar's trial will have on the ongoing #MeToo movement more generally, which hopes to bring awareness to and ultimately end sexual misconduct.

Horton, a 2008 Olympic silver medalist on high bar and the 2010 World's all-around bronze medalist, said it is heartbreaking to hear the news of so many women who are now coming out with claims of abuse.

"I am here to face you, Larry, so you could see that I've regained my strength", she said. Nassar faces up to a life sentence, with a minimum of 25 to 40 years in prison.

He was also a team doctor at the Indianapolis-based USA Gymnastics, which trains Olympians.

"This isn't worth the paper it is written on", she said, "There's no truth in it".

Nassar already has been sentenced to 60 years in prison for federal child pornography crimes.

Bill Schuette said "a full and complete review, report and recommendation" is required. "Larry, you abused the power and trust I and so many others placed in you, and I am not sure I will ever come to terms with how horribly you manipulated and violated me".

"USA Gymnastics will keep their words and experiences at the core of everything we do as we remain focused on our highest priority - the safety, health and well-being of our athletes and creating a culture that empowers and supports them", Perry said.

The eight-member board of trustees sent a letter to Bill Schuette (SHOO'-tee) Friday.

Jordyn Wieber gave a victim impact statement in a Lansing, Michigan, courtroom Friday - the fourth day of sentencing for Larry Nassar.

"As you know, these questions grew louder this week with the victim impact statements being given", the letter states.

"You do realize now the women you so heartlessly abused over such a long period of time are now a force, and you are nothing." said Raisman, who has also accused Nassar of abuse along with fellow gymnasts, at the Ingham County courthouse in MI.

The criminal cases against Nassar followed reports past year in The Indianapolis Star about how USA Gymnastics mishandled complaints about sexual misconduct involving the doctor and coaches.

"You know, their biggest priority from the beginning and still today is their reputation - the medals they win and the money they make off of us", she said.
