    How tragic is it that it went on for so long, and the girls thought that was just the way it was! The #metoo movement is so overdue.

      seems to me there must be some level of knowledge/complicity involving the Karolyi's...they were USA Gymnastics

          Gymnastics was very important to my daughter but some of the other athletes and a couple coaches have been very damaging to her and the damage may never be fully repaired. Gymnastics is still a major part of how she sees herself despite the seeminly unnecessary difficulties.

            A daughter of a friend of mine was allegedly treated sexually inappropriately by her college volleyball coach to force her to transfer. Do not know the details and that happened a couple of decades ago.

            Later add-on.

            The facts that Nassar was a physician rather than a coach bothers me the most.

                      what a surprise...the new CEO of Gymnastics USA has severed ties with Karolyi Ranch...now how about getting the Karolyi's to testify under oath that they were not at all aware of what was going on..http://www.espn.com/olympics/story/_...ining-facility

                        Uh, I think the Karolyi's are at high risk here, and likely laying very low, talking only to lawyers.

                          There is little doubt that child abuse IS occurring on a regular basis from both parents and coaches. Little kids have no ability to rationally choose the kinds of rigor they are being subjected to. This goes for lots of other endeavors also.

                            It's inconceivable to me that adults....particularly those who have children of their own...who were around this doctor weren't aware or suspicious of his actions. I hope this entire scenario is investigated and charges brought forth where appropriate.

                              The text of gymnast Aly Raisman's blistering testimony against Nassar is included in this report:
