The Fierce Five Support McKayla Maroney in Light of Assault Allegations

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.

October is Bullying Awareness month, and Aly Raisman is using her 2.2 million Instagram followers to support the cause.

I also wanted to remind you guys that every single person in the world is going through something. You might not think that they are or you might not realize it.”

Figure Skater Ashley Wagner Isn't Apologizing in ESPN's Body Issue About The Sport, She's Showcasing It

To us, Ashley Wagner is the face of figure skating right now, and in her essay about the sport, you can see her love for it.

The athlete, who is the reigning U.S. National Silver Medalist, defended her words in the mag on twitter, when one site took the piece like Ashley was apologizing for even being in the sport to begin with.

She wasn’t — at all.

“Let’s be clear, I’m making no apologies for my sport!” Ashley wrote on Twitter. “I’m excited to take this opportunity to showcase the athleticism of skating.”
