In more sports news, Olympic women gymnasts testified before Congress on Tuesday about decades of sexual abuse by USA Gymnastics officials, including Dr. Larry Nassar, who is facing charges of criminal sexual conduct with children. He has been accused by dozens of women and children of penetrating their vaginas with his fingers and covering up the abuse by pretending it was part of a medical treatment. This is Olympic bronze medalist Jamie Dantzscher, speaking about Dr. Nassar.
Jamie Dantzscher: “Dr. Nassar abused me at the USA National Training Center in Texas. He abused me in California at meets and all over the world. Many times, the abuse took place in my own room, in my own bed. Worse, he abused me in my hotel room in Sydney at the Olympic Games.”
