Olympic medalist Aly Raisman claims she was sexually abused by team doctor

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

Three-time Olympic gold medalist Aly Raisman is adding her name to the multitude of women who have accused former USA Gymnastics team doctor Larry Nassar of sexual abuse. Raisman said that she spoke to FBI investigators after the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, but the Indianapolis Star later reported that USA Gymnastics didn't report sexual abuse allegations until the athlete or a parent did so.

Raisman's teammate, McKayla Maroney, 21, revealed last month that she too had been molested by Nassar under the guise of medical treatment.

Another former Olympic gymnast, McKayla Maroney, said in October that she was one of the victims of the doctor, a revelation in the middle of the Weinstein affair. Per the Lansing State Journal, more than 140 women and girls have filed suits related to his alleged sexual misconduct, with almost as many reporting him to the cops.

RAISMAN: Why are we looking at why didn't the girls speak up? She explained, "I am angry".

Nassar pleaded guilty to child pornography charges in July and is awaiting sentencing.

Raisman is not the first gymnast to accuse Nassar of abuse.

In the Sunday show 60 Minutes, which was broadcast on Friday, Aly Raisman said that he had undergone the first "treatment" of Dr. Nassar at the age of 15 years. I just want to create change so that they never, ever have to go through this.

AT&T CEO says he won't sell CNN as antitrust tension rises
On Wall Street, Time Warner fell 6.5 percent to close at $88.50, while AT&T shares jumped 1.1 percent to close at $33.44. From the campaign trail, Trump criticized the deal, saying that he would reject it because it concentrated media power.

"What did USA Gymnastics do, and Larry Nassar do, to manipulate these girls so much that they are so afraid to speak up?" Raisman was the captain of the 2012 and 2016 Olympic gold-medal winning USA team.

Raisman, the captain of the 2012 and 2016 Olympic gold-medal teams, details her experiences in her book, "Fierce", which is scheduled for release on Tuesday. USA Gymnastics, in a statement to "60 Minutes", said it is "very sorry that any athlete has been harmed".

All members are now required to report suspected sexual misconduct, and adults kicked out of a club will be tracked in a database to prevent future abuse. He was sacked by USA Gymnastics in 2015 after working with the organization since 1986 - he had been its national medical coordinator since 1996, the New York Times reported.

"These girls, they should be comfortable going to USA Gymnastics and saying 'I need help, I want therapy".

It is also reported he still faces 33 charges of criminal sexual conduct in MI. Jeanette Antolin, Jessica Howard and Kami MacKay have all come forward, alleging abuse by Nassar either through the filing of lawsuits or, in the case of MacKay, on social media.

Since the Nassar scandal broke, USA Gymnastics has changed its reporting system, requiring "mandatory reporting" of any and all sexual abuse. The organization also named Toby Stark, a child welfare advocate, as its director of SafeSport.

In June, the federation immediately adopted 70 recommendations proffered by Deborah Daniels, a former federal prosecutor who oversaw the review. Part of Stark's mandate is educating members on rules, educational programs, reporting and adjudication services.
