Aly Raisman said her former coach on the US Olympics gymnastics team likely knew but said nothing of molestation allegations against former team doctor Larry Nassar.

Ms Raisman said during her victim impact statement, read in front of Nasser in the courtroom: "Neither USA Gymnastics nor the USOC have reached out to express sympathy or even offer support".

"This reprehensible conduct went undetected or ignored for years", the committee, led by Reps. He's also been sentenced twice to at least 40 years in MI prison for sexual assault, punishments that wouldn't start unless the 54-year-old outlives the federal sentence.

Aly Raisman, the Olympic team captain in 2012 and 2016 and an Olympics gold medalist, who testified about own abuse, said of the system, "Their biggest priority from the beginning and still today is their reputation, the medals they win and the money they make off us".

Raisman said the conversation occurred in 2011 - five years before Nassar was arrested. "Coaches, instructors, law enforcement, and other trusted adults all failed these young athletes".

In the wake of the Nassar sex-abuse revelations, numerous officials and directors of the schools and training centers he worked at - who certainly knew about what he had been doing and did nothing - have resigned. Without hesitation, she told Nassar he is now nothing to her, to the victims and to the world.

The senators' announcement comes two days before the House Energy and Commerce Committee is expected to receive written explanations of the handling of sexual misconduct cases by USA Gymnastics (USAG) and other governing bodies of organized sports.

On January 24th, Judge Rosemarie Aquilina of Ingham County Circuit Court in Michigan sentenced Larry Nassar to 40-to-175 years in prison on seven counts of criminal sexual assault during his time serving as medical staff at Michigan State University and the USA Gymnastics.

Raisman, a three-time Olympic gold medal victor, revealed in November she was abused by Nassar during the 2012 London Games.

The Committee also sent a letter to Michigan State University informing it of an investigation.

Nassar, as of Friday morning, is being housed at Milan Federal Correctional Institution in Milan, Mich., according to the Federal Bureau of Prisons website.

Raisman also criticized the lack of attention on behalf of USA Gymnastics and the United States Olympic Committee (USOC) to keep its gymnasts' safe from abuse.

"MSU hired Nassar as its gymnastics team doctor and assistant professor in 1997".
