Aly Raisman Talks For the First Time About Sexual Abuse in USA Gymnastics


Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman has revealed that she was sexually abused by former USA Gymnastics team doctor Larry Nassar. Raisman’s revelation came as she sat down with 60 Minutes to discuss her upcoming memoir, “Fierce,” in which she details Nassar’s abuse.

“I am angry,” Raisman said of Nassar. “I’m really upset because … I care a lot, you know? When I see these young girls that come up to me and they ask for pictures or autographs, whatever it is, I just … I can’t… I just want to create change so that they never, ever have to go through this.”

Raisman is one of several gymnasts who have come forward to detail Nassar’s misconduct. He was fired by USA Gymnastics in 2015 and is currently in jail after pleading guilty to child pornography charges last July.
