The Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman says she was sexually abused by a former USA Gymnastics team doctor.
Raisman told “60 Minutes” she was 15 when she was first treated by Dr. Larry Nassar, who spent more than two decades working with athletes at USA Gymnastics. He is now in jail in Michigan awaiting sentencing after pleading guilty to possession of child pornography.
Raisman, the captain of the 2012 and 2016 Olympic gold-medal teams, details her experiences in her book, “Fierce,” which is scheduled for release on Tuesday.
Raisman is not the first gymnast to accuse Nassar of abuse. Last month, McKayla Maroney, who won two medals at the 2012 Games as Raisman’s teammate on the “Fierce Five,” said Nassar molested her for years.
