Gold medalist Aly Raisman said former Olympic team coach John Geddert might have known about sexual abuse by former team physician Larry Nassar as early as 2011.

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".

Raisman said she was not sure if Geddert attempted to stop Nassar from the abuse after the auto conversation but she was certain he never asked the athletes any questions. He's also been sentenced twice to at least 40 years in state prison in MI for sexual abuse and assaults.

"We would talk about it amongst ourselves.And one of my teammates described in graphic detail what Nassar had done to her the night before".

Raisman, who's among the dozens of young female gymnasts Nassar has pleaded guilty to molesting, said ex-Olympics top coach John Geddert overheard a conversation she had with teammates about the disgraced team doctor. At his sentencing hearing, 156 of his victims confronted him in open court.

Rallies planned as calls for change follow Saskatchewan verdict
The Battleford Court of Queen's Bench jury began deliberating Thursday afternoon and returned its verdict Friday evening. She repeated something other Boushie supporters also said Friday night: that she hoped there would be an inquiry.


Former USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar has been given two prison sentences in MI of 40 to 125 years and 40 to 175 years for molesting young female gymnasts. The IndyStar, part of the USA TODAY NETWORK, revealed the first allegations of abuse by Nassar and triggered a criminal prosecution that led to his imprisonment. After that he would theoretically be transferred to the Michigan Department of Corrections to serve sentences on the state crimes, but he would need to make it to over 100 years old for that to happen.

"It's just unacceptable to me", she said.

Six Republicans and 12 Democrats have also signed onto the resolution to investigate the USOC, which operates under a federal charter. The federation will draw from techniques available in the International Olympic Committee's toolkit on protecting athletes from harassment and abuse in sport.

"Michigan State University, the school I loved and trusted, had the audacity to tell me that I did not understand the difference between sexual assault and a medical procedure", Thomashow stated. "It means telling coaches that physical and emotional abuse of any gymnast is not O.K". Two former gymnasts allegedly informed Klages of Nassar's misconduct as far back as 1997, but their pleas for help were ignored.
