Aly Raisman Opens up About Sexual Abuse by Team Doctor

Donald Miralle  Sports Illustrated

The 23-year-old gymnast says she was sexually abused by Dr. Larry Nassar, who worked for USA Gymnastics for nearly 20 years.

Raisman tells her story to Dr. Jon LaPook for a 60 Minutes report to be broadcast Sunday, Nov. 12 at 7:00 p.m. ET/PT.

Raisman said she was 15 when she was first treated by Nassar.

Nassar has already pleaded guilty to federal child pornography charges and is in jail, awaiting a December 7 sentencing in that case.

The longtime USA Gymnastics physician has been accused of sexual assault by dozens of gymnasts and athletes, and faces more than 20 counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct.

Disney Streaming Service to be Substantially Cheaper than Netflix
Iger also revealed that Disney's new service will be priced "substantially below" Netflix , at least when it initially launches. Thankfully, according to CEO Bob Iger , fans won't need to break the bank to take part in the viewing experience.

Raisman's allegations follow allegations from teammate McKayla Maroney, a two-time Olympic medalist who accused Nassar of sexually abusing her throughout her career.

23-year-old Raisman wouldn't get into the specifics of the alleged abuse - she would only say she's very "angry" and looking for justice.

Larry Nassar is accused of multiple sexual abuse on gymnasts for almost 20 years.

"I am angry", Raisman told "60 Minutes". "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". "I see these young girls that come up to me, and they ask for pictures or autographs, whatever it is, I just..."

She also won individual gold and silver in the floor exercise, silver in the all-around and bronze in the balance beam, making her one of the most-decorated American gymnasts of all time. The three-time Olympic gold medalist, 23, said in a new interview with 60 Minutes, airing Sunday, November 12, that she spoke to FBI investigators after serving as the national team captain at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. He was sacked by USA Gymnastics in 2015 after working with the organization since 1986 - he had been its national medical coordinator since 1996, the New York Times reported. She claimed the abuse began when she was just 13, and she had been reluctant to speak out because she knew he was a renowned physician.

Your fidget spinner could be more unsafe than you know
PIRG has listed the two spinners on their website as unsafe and has even started a petition to get the toys removed from stores. The popular little toys are already the subject of Consumer Product Safety Commission choking hazard warnings.

"I thought I was going to die that night", Maroney said.

"Whether or not he did it to a gymnast, they still knew him". Raisman told 60 Minutes. The plaintiffs are also suing USA Gymnastics and other defendants.

Team USA Gymnastics released a lengthy statement about allegations in February, stating in part that "Regarding Dr. Larry Nassar, USA Gymnastics is appalled that anyone would exploit a young athlete or child in the manner alleged".

Raisman has been an outspoken advocate for survivors of sexual abuse.

The ball then bounced high and behind Anger, allowing Hardee to run under it practically in stride and glide into the end zone. Ryan Fitzpatrick replaced Winston in the second half but could not generate any offense.
