Another Olympic gold medal gymnast is speaking out about the alleged sexual abuse she suffered at the hands of the team's doctor.
One of America's biggest Olympic stars has come forward to accuse the former USA women's gymnastics team doctor of sexual abuse. Raisman is the second US gymnast in the past month to accuse Nassar of abuse, with McKayla Maroney making similar claims in mid-October.
Another former Olympic gymnast, McKayla Maroney, said in October that she was one of the victims of the doctor, a revelation in the middle of the Weinstein affair.
"Why are we looking at why didn't the girls speak up?" She explained, "I am angry".
Dr. Nassar accepted a plea deal in July that would have him serve a combined sentence of 22-27 years for possession of child pornography, rather than charge him with sexual assault - a widely criticized move prosecutors justified by saying that numerous allegations they heard occurred overseas, where they have no jurisdiction.

"I think that, you just want, you want to trust people and that he was just a disgusting person, he took advantage of so many people's trust", Raisman said. According to them, the osteopathic doctor was comforted by the particular environment of high-level gymnastics, where complaints and signs of injury could endanger Olympic dreams. That "treatment" began when Maroney was 13 and continued through her stellar performance at the 2012 Olympics.
Raisman told "60 Minutes", in an interview scheduled to air Sunday, that she spoke to FBI investigators after serving as national team captain at the 2016 Games in Rio de Janeiro. In a statement to "60 Minutes", it added that "USA Gymnastics is very sorry that any athlete has been harmed".
Raisman is the second member of the US women's gymnastics team to allege abuses by Nassar.
Clubs are now "required to report child abuse or neglect, including sexual misconduct, to proper authorities, including the U.S. Center for SafeSport and law enforcement authorities".

Students, staff, community members and veterans filled the Windom Area High School for the 32nd year of this tradition. This was the last Veteran's Day ceremony for the JROTC instructor Major Daniel Rancourt after 22 years at the school.
"Dr. Nassar is no longer affiliated with USA Gymnastics".
In June, the gymnastics board adopted the new USA Gymnastics SafeSport Policy that replaced the previous policy.
Ever since Maroney, 21, spoke out against him, over 140 women have come forward to sue him and his former employer, Michigan State University.
"In the past year, Aly has become an advocate for many issues, and sharing her personal experience of abuse takes great courage", USA Gymnastics said.
Dantzscher also filed a lawsuit against Nassar in California last September as "Jane Doe". "And then he just continued to go into more and more intimate places", Jessica Howard, who suffered from severe hip problems when she was a gymnast, told CBS' 60 Minutes in an episode that aired February 17. The organization also named Toby Stark, a child welfare advocate, as its director of SafeSport.
