Olympic Gymnast Aly Raisman Says She Was Sexually Abused By Team Doctor

Aly Raisman says she was sexually abused by US national team doctor

He still faces 33 charges of criminal sexual conduct in MI, according to USA Today.

Aly spoke to 60 Minutes, in an interview scheduled to air Sunday, that she told FBI investigators about her abuse after serving as national team captain at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.

"What did USA Gymnastics do, and Larry Nassar do, to manipulate these girls so much that they are so afraid to speak up?"

She told 60 Minutes that she started seeing Nassar when she was 15. Raisman is the second USA gymnast in the past month to accuse Nassar of abuse, with McKayla Maroney making similar claims in mid-October.

Syria to join Paris climate pact, leaving U.S. only nation left out
President Trump announced in June he would be withdrawing from the Paris climate change agreement, calling it "unfair". The news about Syria came during the second day of the United Nations' Climate Change Conference in Bonn , Germany.

Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman has joined more than 100 athletes alleging abuse inside USA Gymnastics. "USA Gymnastics is very sorry that any athlete has been harmed..." the statement says, "...we want to work with Aly and all interested athletes to keep athletes safe".

The first public accusations against Nassar came a little more than a year ago, and more than 130 women have filed suits accusing Nassar of sexual assault. He has been sued by over 130 women, and is in MI awaiting trial for over 22 state charges, including the possession of child pornography.

It is also reported he still faces 33 charges of criminal sexual conduct in MI. If convicted, Nassar could be sentenced to life in prison. In the past, Nassar and his attorneys have defended the intra-vaginal and intra-rectal procedures as part of accepted medical practice. She is calling for major changes at USA Gymnastics, the national governing body for her sport.

Ever since Maroney, 21, spoke out against him, over 140 women have come forward to sue him and his former employer, Michigan State University.

Mike Evans suspended one game for pushing Marshon Lattimore
Following the win, New Orleans remains half a game ahead of the Carolina Panthers as the NFC South division leader. The silver lining here is the Saints played well enough to overcome those mistakes, and win both games.

Raisman has called for change within the sport.

Aly Raisman, 23, won six medals including three gold medals at the London Olympics (2012) and Rio (2016). I can't. every time I look at them, every time I see them smiling, I just think. "These girls, they should be comfortable going to USA Gymnastics and saying 'I need help, I want therapy".

Nassar's case was part of a wide-ranging scandal which forced the resignation of USA Gymnastics chief Steve Penny a year ago.

In December 2016, the Indianapolis Star newspaper reported that 368 children and teenage members of clubs affiliated with the Gymnastics Federation had been victims of sexual assault over the past 20 years. She says she spoke to the Federal Bureau of Investigation after the Rio Games.
