Olympic gymnastics star Raisman demands probe of Nassar abuse

Olympic gymnastics star Raisman demands probe of Nassar abuse

Gold medal winning Olympian Jordyn Wieber, on Friday, publicly revealed that she had been sexually abused by ex-USA gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar at his sentencing hearing, becoming the latest star athlete to identify herself as a victim.

"My wife was an elite gymnast who was on a national team, not only trained at the ranch, competed at the ranch and worked with Larry Nassar one-on-one, and I guess the best way I could put it is he had us fooled as much as he had anyone else fooled".

Throughout her statement, she made sure to repeatedly emphasize that she is just one of many who were abused by Nassar, and she praised the more than 70 others who have also given impact statements to the court (in all, a total of 120 women are expected to speak about Nassar's abuse, according to prosecutors).

Friday made day four of Nassar's sentencing.

"I feel like I have lost all enjoyment in life".

Aquilina was elected to the 30th Circuit Court for Ingham County in 2008, after serving as a judge for four years in the 55th District Court in MI.

As Raisman said this, she raised her head high and looked Nassar square in the eyes, her expression conveying both utter fury and absolute dignity. "And now, Larry, it's your turn to listen to me".

"You are so sick, I can't even comprehend how angry I feel when I think of you", said Raisman to Nassar during Friday's hearing in a Lansing, Michigan, courtroom.

"When I wrote that, it was before I came here, OK". When she was a teenage gymnast, she says Larry Nassar sexually abused her.

"It was like being abused all over again", said Raisman, describing how USA Gymnastics celebrated her and her teammates' 2012 and 2016 Olympic success.

Used as a coincident indicator, the CCI reading above +100 would reflect strong price action which may signal an uptrend. A value of 50-75 would indicate a very strong trend, and a value of 75-100 would signify an extremely strong trend.

Several former national team members have said Nassar abused them at the training center, where they were obligated to go once a month while on Team USA. 'I can't believe all of this is coming out about Larry Nassar.

Another victim, Trenea Gonzcar, said she was friends with Nassar for 30 years.

Raisman had the podium for nearly 15 minutes and by the time she was done, she was met with applause from the courtroom and gratitude from the judge.

Telling the court that Nassar "manipulated and violated" her during the 2012 Games, she also stated that the "treatment" he provided was mandatory, and that he reported any athlete who refused to take part in it.

And so the only conclusion that I could come to was that it had to be a legitimate medical treatment, because surely the adults that heard the description of what he was doing would have done something if it wasn't, and he would have never been near me.

Boyce, a former gymnast first treated by Nassar at age 16 in 1997, said he used his status to isolate her and other young athletes.

But I also just got to say that is a situation that is being dealt with, and has been dealt with, and there is no way I could waver on the support for my administration and my president, knowing the 35 years I've spent here, what she has done for this university, what she stood for - not only, athletics is a small part for women's groups, for different groups.

But the athletes did not question the abuse, she said, because of his stellar reputation in the gymnastics world as a "miracle worker". "Moved my underwear over to the side and started touching me without consent, without telling me what you were going to do, and if that wasn't bad enough, with your gloveless hands". You took advantage of that. You took away my innocence, and you took away my voice, but today is a new day.

Raisman's response to Nassar's complaint was scathing.
