Raisman says Nassar abused her

Raisman says Nassar abused her

Another major Team USA gymnastics star claims she was abused by ex-USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar - with Aly Raisman coming forward in the hopes of protecting future athletes.

Raisman is the latest gymnast to speak out against Nassar after Jessica Howard, the U.S. national rhythmic gymnastics champion from 1999 to 2001, and Jeanette Antolin, a Pan American Games silver medallist, also revealed they had been the victim of sexual abuse on the same programme in February.

Nassar has pleaded guilty to Federal child pornography charges and is due to be sentenced on December 7.

Raisman is not the first gymnast to accuse Nassar of abuse.

London 2012 Olympic gold medallist McKayla Maroney also made allegations in a Twitter statement last month.

Last month, McKayla Maroney, 21, detailed how Nassar began molesting her at the age of 13 at a U.S. national team training camp.

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

"I am angry", she said.

"I see these young girls that come up to me, and they ask for pictures or autographs, whatever it is ..."

She also won individual gold and silver in the floor exercise, silver in the all-around and bronze in the balance beam, making her one of the most-decorated American gymnasts of all time.

Becky, who also manages a stable of prominent comedians like Amy Poehler and Kevin Hart, denied threatening any of the women. Comedian Louis C.K. confessed to exposing himself to five women and apologized to them and the people he works with.

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.

It was after the Olympic Games in Rio de Janerio that she talked with FBI investigators about the case and still wonders why all of this took so long to come into the spotlight. She claimed the abuse began when she was just 13, and she had been reluctant to speak out because she knew he was a renowned physician.

"I was molested by Dr. Larry Nassar, the team doctor for the US Women's National Gymnastics Team, and Olympic team", Maroney wrote in the Twitter post under the #MeToo hashtag, which has remained a trending topic on social media after a number of women accused Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault in October.

"I thought I was going to die that night", Maroney said. Raisman told 60 Minutes. The plaintiffs also are suing USA Gymnastics. In a statement to "60 Minutes", it added that "USA Gymnastics is very sorry that any athlete has been harmed".
