Raisman says Olympics coach might have known about Nassar abuse for years

Raisman says Olympics coach might have known about Nassar abuse for years

Interim president John Engler requested that Michigan State's provost revoke the tenure of former medical school dean William Strampel, which is the first step to firing him.

Aly Raisman opened up about why she thinks one of her former coaches may have known about Larry Nassar's abuse but didn't stop it.

"The Olympic system in the United States failed these athletes and we are part of the Olympic system in the United States", said Probst, speaking hours before the opening ceremony of the Pyeongchang Winter Games.

An attorney for Geddert, who has since retired, has not yet commented on the matter.

The exchange happened in 2011, five years before Nassar was caught, Raisman said.

"At the time of the incident, I didn't know that the great brotherhood had done this, and I was overcome with gratitude when I found out", Margraves said in a statement.

More than 250 women came forward alleging Larry Nassar abused them.

Nassar, 54, was sentenced to 60 years in federal prison on three counts of child pornography in December before being sentenced to 40 to 175 years in state prison on seven counts of sexual assault in January and 40 to 125 more years in state prison on three more counts of sexual assault earlier this month. "After he was done, he washed his hands and I remember thinking 'Did he just do what I think he did? The Committee seeks to better understand USA Gymnastics' responsibility to its gymnastics clubs and gyms, its policies and procedures on sexual assault, and the actions it plans to take in response to this pervasive sexual abuse within the sport".

Democratic Rep. Carolyn Maloney of NY says Congress must investigate the "systemic failure" that enabled Nassar to sexually abuse girls for so long.

He said then that he had been in the chain of command between Strampel and Nassar, but Strampel and another doctor did most of the day-to-day supervision and decision-making related to MSU Sports Medicine.

Ever since going public with her story, Raisman has been on a verbal onslaught against Nassar's enablers in an attempt to make sure that nothing like this sexual assault scandal ever happens again.

Dozens of the victims, including Olympic gold medalist Simone Biles, have accused officials at the USOC, USA Gymnastics and Michigan State University of failing to investigate complaints stretching back decades. "You know, if one adult listened or had the character to act. we would have never met him".
