McKayla Maroney: Larry Nassar abused me 'hundreds of times'

McKayla Maroney often questioned whether her gymnastics career was worth the abuse

In October, Maroney was among the first high-profile gymnasts to publicly come forward and speak about Nassar's abuse.

She added, "The cool thing about social media is that so many people at that time were speaking up".

Wieber was a member of the "Fierce Five" that won a team gold in 2012.

The lawsuit further alleges that USA Gymnastics destroyed medical records of Jordyn Wieber, "to further hide the sexual abuse of Nassar". USA Gymnastics allowed Nassar to accompany the team to World Championships and Olympic competitions as well as monthly training sessions held at the Karolyi ranch, the national training center, in Houston, Tex. I definitely see a future where athletes are safe and succeeding, and I think this next generation is gonna be even stronger with everything that we're doing.my team won gold medals in spite of U.S.A. Gymnastics, M.S.U., and the U.S.O.C., and they don't build champions, they break them.

"I at times question if my gymnastics career was really even worth it because of the stuff I'm dealing with now, because sometimes you're just left in the dust", Maroney told the charity luncheon. "We need to change that".

Nasser was recently sentenced to up to 175 years on charges of sexual assault, and also faces a 40-to-125-year sentence on three other counts of sexual assault and a 60-year sentence for federal charges of child pornography.

As part of his guilty plea, he admitted using his power as a trusted doctor to sexually abuse young girls under the guise of providing medical treatment.

It was during that same sentencing hearing that Wieber came forward publicly that she was too abused by Nassar. A victim impact statement written by Maroney was read in court, but she did not appear in person.

Echoing criticism her teammates have launched at those who failed to protect them from Nassar, in her first public remarks Maroney called out USA Gymnastics, the sport's national governing body, the U.S. Olympic Committee (USOC), and Michigan State University (MSU), where Nassar was also on the faculty, for failing to take responsibility for Nassar's abuse. "They demanded excellence from me, but they couldn't give it to us".
