The Fierce Five Support McKayla Maroney in Light of Assault Allegations

The Fierce Five in the 2012 summer Olympics was made up of Aly Raisman, Gabby Douglas, McKayla Maroney, Kyla Ross, and Jordyn Wieber.

Now, after McKayla has bravely come forward with allegations of repeated sexual assault against her U.S. team doctor, Dr. Larry Nassar, her former teammates are speaking out with messages of support.

“The scariest night of my life happened when I was 15 years old,” McKayla remembered in her letter. “I had flown all day and night with the team to get to Tokyo. [Dr. Nassar had] given me a sleeping pill for the flight, and the next thing I know, I was all alone with him in his hotel room getting a ‘treatment.’ I thought I was going to die that night.”

Aly was quick to support her friend.

“100% support you,” she tweeted. “SO proud of you and your strength. Love you like a sister!!” She also tweeted a picture of the two of them in a message of support.

“Heartbreaking that things like this can happen in this world,” Kyla agreed. “My heart goes out to you mac & all those affected by such tragic events.”

“So sad and heartbreaking that this happened to you Mack,” Jordyn echoed. “I’m here for you and I support you.”

In terrible cases like these, supporting the women who come forward is so important. We’re glad her teammates are speaking out.
