Team USA Rio Olympics gold medalist gymnast Aly Raisman reveals she was also sexual abused by the team doctor Larry Nassar.

Olympic gold medalist Aly Raisman is the second of the so-called ‘Fierce Five’ medal-winning squad to reveal that she was sexually abused by the USA Gymnastics team doctor.

Three-time gold medalist Raisman spoke out about the abuse in an interview with ‘60 Minutes’ which will air Sunday.


The revelation comes in the wake of her 2012 London Olympics teammate McKayla Maroney’s admission that she suffered “systematic sexual abuse” at the hands of the doctor, Larry Nassar.

Raisman was the captain of US Olympic teams that won gold medals for the United States at the 2012 London and 2016 Rio Olympics.
