Aly Raisman Says She 'Felt Sick' & Almost Passed Out After Giving Her Statement at Nassar's Hearing

Aly Raisman was one of over 150 women who spoke at former doctor Larry Nassar hearing last week, reading a victim impact statement that he didn’t want to hear.

Now, the Olympic medalist, is opening up in several interviews about what it felt like to speak in court, where he was sitting only feet away from her.

“In that moment, I almost felt like I was going to compete, because at the Olympics, you block out everything, and in that moment, I blocked out everything,” Aly shared with Today on Thursday (January 25). “I forgot that people were watching me, I forgot the media was over there, I forgot that Larry was right there. I just spoke, and I felt like I really had to be strong.”

While she did prep for the hearing, Aly still felt sick after her speech.

“I almost passed out [after giving testimony],” she shared. “I had the worst headache for hours. Even since then – I still don’t feel good now…It’s hard to put into words, but it makes me literally sick, all the stress and the trauma of everything.”

She adds, “For that moment, I had to be strong. But I’m very, very exhausted from it.”

Aly is also pictured at The View, telling her story to the hosts of the program there on Friday (January 26).
