Aly Raisman Team USA Doctor Abused Me Too

Aly Raisman Team USA Doctor Abused Me Too

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

Raisman, the captain of the 2012 and 2016 Olympic gold-medal teams, details her experiences in her book, "Fierce", which is scheduled for release on Tuesday.

More than 130 women, many of them former athletes, have accused Nassar of sexual assault, 60 Minutes reports - many filing civil lawsuits alleging that Nassar sexually abused them under the guise of treating them for hip, back and other athletic injuries.

He also pleaded guilty in July to federal child pornography charges, after authorities found him in possession of thousands of images, including some with victims as young as six years old. He was in a position of power, actually named the national medical coordinator for USA Gymnastics up until the summer of 2015.

Since the Nassar scandal broke, USA Gymnastics has changed its reporting system, requiring "mandatory reporting" of any and all sexual abuse. The three-time Olympic gold medalist, 23, said in a new interview with 60 Minutes, airing Sunday, November 12, that she spoke to FBI investigators after serving as the national team captain at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. 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.

Larry Nassar is accused of multiple sexual abuse on gymnasts for almost 20 years. More and more women have recently spoken out against him, including another Olympic gymnastics star, McKayla Maroney. According to Raisman, however, the issue is systemic along with Nassar, and she has been asked in the past why she didn't speak out sooner. Raisman told 60 Minutes.

As part of the 60 Minutes interview, Raisman said, "Why are we looking at why didn't the girls speak up?"

"For me, the scariest night of my life happened when I was 15 years old", Maroney wrote in her original social media post.

However, Nassar also faces a handful of other criminal charges stemming from the accusations.

Raisman is the latest in a disturbingly long line of United States female gymnasts who have accused the disgraced doctor of inappropriate actions. In a statement to 60 Minutes, USA Gymnastics said it was "very sorry that any athlete has been harmed" and that the organization wants "to work with Aly and all interested athletes to keep athletes safe".
