Aly Raisman Is Concentrating on Fixing US Gymnastics First Before the 2020 Olympics

Aly Raisman has been in the spotlight for a while with the 2014 and 2016 Summer Olympic Games — but lately, she’s been there as a voice for the gymnastics community about sexual abuse going on.

In a new interview with People, the gymnast is putting more of her thoughts and energy to sexual abuse in the system, than concentrating on the upcoming 2020 Tokyo Summer Olympics.

“I’ve been to two Olympic Games, and I love gymnastics so much,” she shared. “I love the Olympics and being able to represent my country. But with everything going on right now, I realize that this is more important than any gold medal. My main focus is fixing this organization and getting to the bottom of what happened.”

Aly, who was team captain in London and Rio, was one of Larry Nassar‘s victims, the former physician for the US Gymnastics teams.

“I felt very strong,” she says of how she felt after her testimony. “I felt like I had so much I wanted to say. You never really want to say, ‘I was sexually abused, but you have to process it. You can’t push it aside forever, which is what I did for a long time. I’m still processing it and coping with it.”

Aly adds, “I’m just starting to realize how strong I am and I won’t be silenced.”
