'Rotten from the inside': Olympian blasts USA Gymnastics


Former Olympic gold medalists Jordyn Wieber, McKayla Maroney, and Aly Raisman condemned Larry Nassar in powerful statements during the sentencing of their former team doctor.

"And instead we're sitting here in a courtroom with five days of victim impact statements, because Larry was allowed to abuse women and children for nearly 30 years". I can not adequately capture the level of disgust I feel when I think about how this happened. "And now, Larry, it's your turn to listen to me".

Raisman had tweeted that she wouldn't attend the sentencing the other day but said in court that once she started listening to the impact statements, she changed her mind.

Denhollander says Klages called in the other gymnasts, and questioned them in front of Boyce. You were decorated by USA Gymnastics and the United States Olympic Committee, both of which put you on advisory boards and committees to come up with policies that will protect athletes from this kind of abuse.

In a statement published on its website, spokesman Jason Cody said, "any suggestion that the university covered up Nassar's horrific conduct is simply false".

"USA Gymnastics remains focused on our highest priority - the safety, health and well-being of our athletes and creating a culture that empowers and supports them".

Simone Biles - who dazzled in winning gold at the 2016 Rio Olympics - said in her Twitter post revealing abuse by Nassar at the ranch this week that it "breaks my heart" to think of returning there to train for the 2020 Games.

The 22-year-old is the fourth member of the "Fierce Five" - the 2012 US Olympic gymnastics team - to publicly speak about the abuse by Nassar, which was carried out under the guise of medical treatment.

JetBlue Airways Co. (JBLU) CEO Sells 2000 Shares of Stock
In other JetBlue Airways news, CEO Robin Hayes sold 2,000 shares of the firm's stock in a transaction on Friday, December 1st. Perhaps, that suggests something about why 0.93% of the outstanding share supply is held by institutional investors.

"I am also here to tell you to your face Larry that you have not taken gymnastics away from me".

"We have our voices and we will not be silenced", she said. Nassar cried as she spoke about how he betrayed her trust by abusing her hundreds of times - the first tears he shed during Friday's statements. "I never felt scared of you". "You even told on us if we didn't want to be treated by you".

During the sentencing hearing, the judge has been praising each speaker and criticizing Nassar, whom she described as a "monster" who is "going to wither" like the wicked witch in "The Wizard of Oz".

She and dozens of other women were in a MI courthouse this week, to face Nassar and detail his alleged crimes.

Kathie Klages has since retired from the university and her attorney denies Klages was informed of Nasser's alleged sexual abuse of his patients. Women and girls said the stories inspired them to step forward with detailed allegations of abuse. "This is your hell and I hope you burn in it". You took away my innocence, and you took away my voice, but today is a new day. "But you were a doctor and I assumed I was the problem for thinking badly of you".

A found that at least 14 representatives at MSU were informed of sexual misconduct complaints against Nassar over two decades.

Michigan State's board of trustees requested the review following growing calls for university President Lou Anna Simon to resign. Now he faces an additional prison sentence of 25 to 40 years in the Ingham County case.
