Olympic gold medalist Aly Raisman speaks at Larry Nassar sentencing

Olympic gold medalist Aly Raisman speaks at Larry Nassar sentencing

In a statement, the governing body confirmed it would no longer serve as the national team training centre following the accusations of sexual abuse against Nassar.

Kyle Stephens, pausing to compose herself during Nassar's sentencing hearing in a courtroom in Lansing, Michigan, said the doctor, a family friend, began molesting her when she was 6 years old and her parents did not believe her when she told them. "I knew it felt unusual, but he was the national team doctor". He also was a team doctor at Indianapolis-based USA Gymnastics, which trains Olympians.

Nassar was sentenced to 60 years in prison on child pornography charges.

A MI sports doctor who molested young gymnasts won't get his prison sentence until next week.

"I am here to face you, Larry, so you can see I've regained my strength", Raisman said.

Maroney, a two-time world champion vaulter and Olympic champion, filed a lawsuit last month against USA Gymnastics and the US Olympic Committee after her settlement deal in December 2016. Prosecutors are seeking up to 125 years in prison for Nassar.

Michigan's attorney general said his office will conduct a review of Michigan State University's handling of complaints against Nassar.

Convicted sexual predator Larry Nassar wrote a letter to the court begging to end the witness statements because it was bad for his health, calling the whole thing a "media circus" that was "detrimental to his mental health".

Rohingya Refugees Demand Safeguards to Return to Myanmar
The statement said there had been "no change of attitude of the Myanmar government and its military toward Rohingya". However, it is unclear if there will be more than a handful of symbolic repatriations.

A university spokesman says the board of trustees appreciates lawmakers' opinions but still supports Simon, who attended the sentencing Wednesday. As of Friday morning, more than 70 victims had given testimony at Nassar's sentencing.

"It seemed whenever and wherever this man could find the chance, I was 'treated.' It happened in London before my team and I won the gold medal, and it happened before I won my silver medal".

"Your Honor, I ask you to give Larry the strongest possible sentence, which his actions deserve, for by doing so, you will send a message to him and to other abusers that they cannot get away with their terrible crimes".

Nassar could be sentenced Friday.

Several women alleged that they spoke to officials at Michigan State about Nassar's abuse in the late 1990s.

The judge, who has responded to each victim with words of encouragement, addressed Raisman.

She hopes those who enabled Nassar's behavior recognize what has transpired. The judge dismissed it as "mumbo jumbo".
