Aly Raisman Joins Fellow Olympic Gymnast McKayla Maroney In Accusing U.S. Team Doctor Of Sexual Abuse


Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman sat down with 60 Minutes for an interview that will air on Sunday, November 12th.  According to Raisman, she was sexually abused by U.S. national team doctor, Larry Nassar.

Raisman is the second high profile U.S. gymnast to accuse Nasser of sexual abuse after McKayla Maroney, who did so a few weeks back on social media.

Raisman isn't just speaking out, she's angry about what took place, CBS News:

RAISMAN: Why are we looking at why didn't the girls speak up? Why not look at what about the culture? What did USA Gymnastics do, and Larry Nassar do, to manipulate these girls so much that they are so afraid to speak up?

JON LAPOOK: You're angry.

RAISMAN: I am angry. I'm really upset because it's been-- I care a lot you know, when I see these young girls that come up to me, and they ask for pictures or autographs, whatever it is, I just-- I can't-- every time I look at them, every time I see them smiling, I just think-- I just want to create change so that they never, ever have to go through this.
