Olympian Aly Raisman Reports Sexual Abuse By Former USA Doctor

McKayla Maroney (center) and Ali Raisman (second from left) celebrate with their "Fierce Five" teammates after winning team gold at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.

Nassar pleaded guilty in July to federal child pornography charges stemming from a 2016 investigation into the sexual abuse of patients, but did not plead guilty to assault and abuse. The three-time gold medalist and captain of the 2012 and 2016 Olympic teams also describes it in her book, "Fierce", which will be released next week.

In an interview with CBS' "60 Minutes" set to air on Sunday, Raisman says she's "angry" that USA Gymnastics didn't address sooner the rampant allegations against Nassar. Raisman said of people who have asked why the athletes didn't speak out earlier. More than 130 women have filed lawsuits claiming sexual abuse by Nassar during his time with the us gymnastics team.

Nassar is being held in jail without bond on the pornography charges and is scheduled to be sentenced November 27.

"We are appalled by the conduct of which Nassar is accused, and we are very sorry that any athlete has been harmed during her or his gymnastics career", said USA Gymnastics.

The 23-year-old Raisman has been highly critical of USA Gymnastics in recent months, calling for leadership change at the top of the organization while advocating for athlete's rights.

5 women accuse comedian Louis CK of sexual misconduct, film premiere canceled
Rumors about Louis C.K.'s alleged misconduct have been circulating since 2012 , but the accusers hadn't come forward until now. She told the Times she sat in the comedian's office, with colleagues outside the door, as he masturbated.

Since the Nassar scandal broke, USA Gymnastics has changed its reporting system, requiring "mandatory reporting" of any and all sexual abuse.

Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman has joined more than 100 athletes alleging abuse inside USA Gymnastics. He was sacked by the organization in the summer of 2015. "Every single kid is important, and I want USA Gymnastics to do a better job with that". "I need this, '" Raisman said in an interview with The Associated Press and USA Today in August during the 2017 national championships.

"It doesn't matter if you're the Olympic champion or you're an 8-year-old that goes to gymnastics in OH, or wherever you are in the United States", she said during an interview in August. I can't. Every time I look at them, every time I see them smiling, I just think. "It's insane. Because when a doctor says something you want to believe him and it's just bad". Raisman and Maroney have both said that Nassar's harassment came in the form of "treatments". She claimed the abuse began when she was just 13, and she had been reluctant to speak out because she knew he was a renowned physician.

She added: "Children often don't speak up with they're abused".

USA Gymnastics president and chief executive chief Steve Penny resigned over the issue. Perry starts December 1.
