Olympic Gold Medalist Gymnast Aly Raisman Claims Team Doctor Sexually Abused Her

After the revelations about Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein surfaced, woman and men from all walks of life have been stepping forward with accusations. Aly Raisman was part of the 2012 Gold medal gymnastic team, she is the second team member to come forward with sexual harassment allegations. Raisman won three gold medals at the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London. Raisman says that the team doctor Larry Nassar sexually abused her, she is telling her story to ’60 Minutes’ which will air Sunday.

Raisman said that all the women and men who have been coming forward in the last few months has given her strength to also come forward. Raisman also participated in the summer 2016 Olympic games at Rio de Janeiro wining gold and bronze. The Needham, Massachusetts native said Dr. Nassar had been sexually abusing her since she was 15 years old. Another reason Raisman said she came forward is because of all the young girls that idolize her. She said “I see these young girls that come up to me and they ask for pictures or autographs, or whatever it is.” Raisman said she owes it to them to speak her truth so they know they have a voice too.

Raisman also details the abuse by Nassar in her new book ‘Fierce’. She claims that when she was first treated by the team doctor at 15 is when the abuse started. The six time Olympic medal winner, said she first talked to the FBI about Nassar after the Rio games in 2016. She said she and others were manipulated so badly by Dr. Nassar that they were terrified of speaking up. After Raisman and others have complained about Nassar the USA Gymnastics Association said “they were appalled by the accusations.” Over 130 woman have now accused Nassar of sexual abuse.
