McKayla Maroney Speaks Out For First Time About Larry Nassar Abuse

McKayla Maroney was one of the many who spoke out about Larry Nassar‘s abuse while she was on the Team USA Gymnastics team, and now she’s giving her first interview about it all.

In a sneak peek of her Dateline feature, which aired on Today this morning, the 22-year-old athlete detailed how the abuse started and how it went on for years.

“He said that nobody would understand this and the sacrifice that it takes to get to the Olympics, so you can’t tell people this,” McKayla shared. “He didn’t say it in a way that was mean or anything like that.”

She adds, “I actually was like, ‘That makes sense, I don’t want to tell anybody about this.’ And I didn’t believe that they would understand.”

McKayla‘s full interview will air during a Dateline special on Sunday, April 22nd on NBC.
