Seven more women have filed a civil lawsuit alleging sexual abuse at the hands of former Michigan State University and USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar.
A congressional committee investigating sexual abuse in gymnastics said in February 8 letters to the Karolyis, USA Gymnastics and the U.S. Olympic Committee that they were all "at the center of many of these failures" that allowed Nassar's sexual abuse to persist for more than two decades.
Martha Karolyi said she had no way of knowing Nassar had been sexually abusing athletes. "I thought that training for the Olympics would be the hardest thing that I would ever have to do, but in fact the hardest thing.is processing that I'm a victim of Larry Nassar". They have been named in lawsuits.
They are the other victims of USA Gymnastics. And some gymnasts have come forward to complain about training methods that created a generation of champions but took an emotional toll. Wieber said she discussed it with her teammates McKayla Maroney and Aly Raisman who all disliked and were confused by Nassar's treatments.
"I would've starved at the Olympics if I didn't have him bring me food", she says.
Years later, after a woman publicly accused Nassar of abuse in a story in the Indianapolis Star in September 2016, Wieber, like dozens of girls and women across the country, realized Nassar had been sexually assaulting her.

He continued by saying that the United States and its allies have demonstrated a blatant disregard for worldwide law. The Pentagon has said the strikes successfully hit the three chemical weapons facilities which were targeted.
Bela Karolyi said the revelations of abuse that sent Nassar to prison for decades were a shock.
Neither Michigan State University nor USA Gymnastics immediately responded to HuffPost's requests for comment on Maroney's remarks.
This sentiment has been echoed by other members of the Fierce Five gymnastics team who have spoken up about the abuse. This arbitrary number, leaked to the press, will most likely go up in these types of negotiations, sticking taxpayers with more and more of the bill for Larry Nassar's crimes. By 2014, he felt comfortable enough to abuse his patients without any prior explanation when performing the "treatment", according to the report. He pleaded guilty to 10 counts of criminal sexual conduct, and during his sentencing, he was confronted by upwards of 150 women who suffered all these years because of his abuse. I knew it felt odd, but he was the national team doctor. USA Gymnastics has seen a chief executive and its entire board of directors resign, and the USOC's chief executive has also stepped down.
"The whole thing is just like an explosion, a bomb exploding", Bela Karolyi said in the NBC interview, a portion of which was shown Friday on the "Today" programme. The organization said in January it wouldn't seek to punish Maroney if she chose to break the agreement. "Because of the stuff I'm dealing with now".
Savannah Guthrie says she hates to miss a broadcast of NBC's "Today", but recently decided to make an exception.
