Michigan State names 2 faculty athletic reps after 1 quit

McKayla Maroney questioned whether or not her star gymnastics career "was really even worth it" because of the fallout from her sexual abuse at the hands of team doctor Larry Nassar, she said Tuesday.

The USA Gymnastics Team released a statement about Maroney's claims, saying that they are saddened by her memories of the team are stained by the crimes committed by the doctor.

Roughly 200 athletes described being abused by Nassar, who is imprisoned for molesting athletes at the school and on the US gymnastics team.

Bela Karolyi coached USA gymnast Mary Lou Retton to 1984 Los Angeles Olympic gold only three years after defecting from Romania to the United States.

Maroney provided a written victim impact statement to be read during Nassar's sentencing hearing, telling him that he "left scars on my psyche that may never heal".

The former gymnast argued in her suit that Indianapolis-based USA Gymnastics failed to protect her despite repeated warnings years earlier about coach William McCabe.

"I would've starved at the Olympics if I didn't have him bring me food", Maroney said, adding that Nassar bought her a loaf of bread. And I just thought you know we need someone to give these hidden victims that haven't come forward yet, we need someone to give them validation. She tells Savannah Guthrie in "no way" did she suspect Larry Nassar was sexually abusing athletes.

Russian Federation sees no need for United Nations inquiry into Syria toxic gas attacks
Earlier on Tuesday, Syrian state media falsely reported that members of the world's chemical weapons watchdog had entered Douma. Saudi Arabia is also a member of the USA -led coalition battling IS militants.

In separate cases, Nassar was sentenced to 40 to 175 years and 40 to 125 years in prison in January and February, respectively, on multiple counts of sexual abuse against girls and young women.

The Olympic Committee, which claims to not have known about the abuse before June 2015, has apologized to the victims and announced reforms to ensure the protection of athletes.

Neither Michigan State University nor USA Gymnastics immediately responded to HuffPost's requests for comment on Maroney's remarks.

MSU and USA Gymnastics are named as defendants in the suits, as well as Dr. William Strampel, former dean of MSU's College of Osteopathic Medicine and Nassar's former supervisor; Drs.

This sentiment has been echoed by other members of the Fierce Five gymnastics team who have spoken up about the abuse. "Larry Nassar is a good guy'".

Nassar spent almost three decades at USA Gymnastics before being fired in 2015 after complaints about his behavior. By 2014, he felt comfortable enough to abuse his patients without any prior explanation when performing the "treatment", according to the report. USA Gymnastics has seen a chief executive and its entire board of directors resign, and the USOC's chief executive has also stepped down.

"The whole gymnastics community couldn't recognize this", Martha Karolyi said in an excerpt provided to The Associated Press on Friday by NBC. Maroney said she was abused "hundreds" of times by Nassar. "Because of the stuff I'm dealing with now".
