Olympic gold medalist Aly Raisman says she was abused by Larry Nassar

Aly Raisman, a six-time Olympic medalist and two-time national team captain, said she was sexually abused by former Michigan State and USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar, according to CBS’ “60 Minutes.”

Nassar already faces 22 counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct and could receive a sentence of life in prison.

Raisman told “60 Minutes,” in an interview scheduled to air Sunday, that she spoke to FBI investigators after serving as national team captain at the 2016 Games in Rio de Janeiro. In the interview, Raisman said she didn’t know why it took so long for allegations against Nassar to come forward.

“Why are we looking at why didn’t the girls speak up? Why not look at what about the culture?” she said. “What did USA Gymnastics do, and Larry Nassar do, to manipulate these girls so much that they are so afraid to speak up?”
