Aly Raisman Accuses Former USA Gymnastics Doctor Larry Nassar Of Sexual Abuse

Aly Raisman has taken a brave step forward and says that she was also sexually abused by former USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar.

The Olympic gymnast joins her “Fierce Five” member McKayla Maroney, who opened up about her own experiences last month.

Aly spoke to 60 Minutes, in an interview scheduled to air Sunday, that she told FBI investigators about her abuse after serving as national team captain at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.

“Why are we looking at why didn’t the girls speak up? Why not look at what about the culture?” she shared. “What did USA Gymnastics do, and Larry Nassar do, to manipulate these girls so much that they are so afraid to speak up?”

Dr. Nassar is currently in jail after pleading guilty to child pornography charges – but not guilty to sexual assault. More than 130 women have filed civil lawsuits against the doctor claiming abuse.

“I am angry,” Aly adds. “I’m really upset because it’s been– I care a lot you know, when I see these young girls that come up to me, and they ask for pictures or autographs, whatever it is, I just– I can’t– every time I look at them, every time I see them smiling, I just think– I just want to create change so that they never, ever have to go through this.”
