Gymnastics: Maroney says she was molested by Nassar 'hundreds' of times

McKayla Maroney Sometimes Wonders If Her Gymnastics Career Was Worth It After Abuse

Gold medalist sues USA Gymnastics, Michigan State

Referencing recent claims from Nassar victim Kaylee Lorincz that Engler offered her a settlement in a private meeting, Wieber said the university has handled it "very poorly". "Learning from everything that's come out, I never should have met him".

"My team won gold medals in spite of USA Gymnastics and MSU and USOC".

Jordyn Wieber, her teammate at the 2012 Olympics, also gave a similar account of Nassar's manipulation to a U.S. Senate subcommittee Wednesday.

Still, several officials said publicly the personal connection between the leaders is robust enough to withstand the tensions. Trump said at the press conference, "We will not repeat the mistakes of previous administrations".

USA Gymnastics has replaced almost its entire leadership over the last 15 months, including bringing on a new president and board of directors.

Nassar, 54, is serving a 60-year sentence at a federal prison in Tucson, Arizona, on child pornography charges.

Sharing her story with "The Today Show", the 22-year-old Maroney said Nassar started persuading her not to reveal what he was doing to her as early as her first time at the Karolyi Ranch, the USA Gymnatics training facility in Texas. She urged the committee to question exactly the company's former chairman, " Paul Parilla, and its former president Steve Penny, and to carry U.S.A. Gymnastics accountable.

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Olympic gold medalist Jordyn Wieber is the latest gymnast to sue Michigan State University, USA Gymnastics and the U.S. Olympic Committee over former sports doctor Larry Nasssar's sexual abuse. "It didn't seem like they cared about anything else". "They break them. But we're changing that". "Despite her trust placed in coaches, those in positions of authority over NASSAR, and those mandated to report suspected sexual abuse to law enforcement, the Plaintiff and her family were deceived by the Defendants and was subjected to known risks of abuse by NASSAR". "And wanting to keep you skinny", Maroney said.

The hearing also featured testimony from alleged victims in speedskating and figure skating, who spoke of cultural issues they believe have made sex abuse particularly hard to stanch in Olympic sports, where adult coaches can quickly acquire powerful roles in the lives of dozens of children, and where Olympic organizations have long allowed fears of lawsuits and a narrow view of their responsibilities to impede child protection efforts.

Maroney said that she often felt fear about speaking out, but that "fear turns to fearlessness" when she realized how many people she would be helping. She said he also appeared to her to be a "good guy", who tried to help her deal with the stresses of training and pressure from coaches.
