Aly Raisman says USA Gymnastics swept sex abuse scandal "under the rug"

Six-time Olympic medalist Aly Raisman fiercely spoke out against Usa Gymnastics for what she believes is a failure to address a major sexual abuse scandal.

Former national team doctor Larry Nassar, who served in the position for 29 years, is at the center of the scandal.

USA Gymnastics launched an independent review of its policies in the wake of the allegations against Nassar and reporting by the Indianapolis Star that highlighted chronic mishandling of abuse allegations against coaches and staff at some of its more than 3,500 clubs across the country.

Raisman, who most recently won gold in Rio at the 2016 Olympics, is calling for major change.

USA Gymnastics was quick to respond to Raisman’s criticism, saying the organization is “taking the issue head-on” and wants to work with Raisman on athlete safety.
