Aly Raisman: I was sexually abused by former USA Gymnastics doctor

Raisman, who began being treated by Nassar when she was 15, reveals during the interview that she spoke with the Federal Bureau of Investigation shortly after the Rio Games last summer. If she said anything about her experience with Dr. Nassar or going public with her accusations, reporters were not invited inside to hear. Why not look at what about the culture? What did USA Gymnastics do, and Larry Nassar do, to manipulate these girls so much that they are so afraid to speak up? "I'm really upset. I care a lot and when I see these young girls and they come up and ask for pictures I just I look at them".

Raisman says she was first treated by Nassar when she was 15 and is among scores of young female gymnasts who have made claims of abuse against Nassar, more than 100 of whom have sued the doctor.

Aly Raisman continues to share her story.

"It seemed whenever and wherever this man could find the chance, I was 'treated.' It happened in London before my team and I won the gold medal, and it happened before I won my silver", Maroney wrote. Among other things, she talks about why it took so long for women to come forward.

"Is it possible to put an end to this type of abuse?"

Meanwhile, all government and private schools in Gurugram will remain closed today in view of the alarming air pollution levels. The smog situation in the National Capital has been deteriorating for nearly past one week.

"And remember, it's never too late to speak up".

More than 130 women have accused Nassar of sexual assault.

Raisman's parents also spoke out about their daughter's abuse, saying that parents should educate their children on sexual assault and give them the tools to speak out if they are ever victims.

The sleazy physician previously admitted to possession of child pornography and is now being sued by 140 women. Prosecutors have recommended that he be given a prison sentence of between 22 and 27 years.

Finally coming to grips with the nauseating reality of what, she claims, Nassar did to her-and her teammates-opened up a floodgate of emotion. "The plea today was negotiated only to resolve the federal charges", their joint statement reads. He would buy me little things.

Raisman would not go into the graphic details of what Nassar did to her, but she did reveal who she believes is to blame.

"In the previous year, Aly has become an advocate for many issues, and sharing her personal experience of abuse takes great courage", USA Gymnastics said.

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.

Team members who fly into Houston for training camps must be escorted to the camp with at least two other people to avoid any one-on-one interaction. "Our athletes are our priority, and we are committed to promoting an environment of empowerment that encourages speaking up, especially on hard topics like abuse, as well the protection of athletes at all levels throughout our gymnastics community".

Aly said she knew from the beginning that she would write about the incidents in her book.

Back in March, former star gymnasts testified before Congress about being sexually abused by Nassar in support of a bill that would require tougher sex-abuse reporting for Olympic sports.
