McKayla Maroney and Larry Nassar

Former Olympic gymnast McKayla Maroney said she was molested by team physician Larry Nassar during her very first visit with him, and "hundreds" of times thereafter. On the first day she met Nassar, when she was 13 years old, "He told me he was going to do a checkup on me and that was the first day I was abused", Maroney says in a preview of the sit-down.

Wieber has complained that Nasser - who was accused of sexually assaulting young women and girls under the guise of treating them - acted as a friend, bringing her and others food and candy. She says the abuse spanned between 2006 and 2012, her medical records were destroyed, and she and her teammates "were not protected".

"I actually was like, 'That makes sense".

Maroney said that she often felt fear about speaking out, but that "fear turns to fearlessness" when she realized how many people she would be helping. "It didn't seem like they cared about anything else". "The people and organizations who are responsible need to accept responsibility for the pain they caused me and my sister survivors".

"And there's just other things about the culture that are also messed up that he used against us", McKayla Maroney said of Larry Nassar in a forthcoming "Dateline" interview, airing Sunday.

It was only earlier this year that disgraced sports doctor Larry Nassar was sentenced to up to 175 years in prison for multiple counts of sexual misconduct and child pornography, so the awful aftermath his victims have to endure will probably linger for quite some time. Jerry Moran, R-Kansas, and Richard Blumenthal, D-Connecticut, is the first in its ongoing investigation into how Nassar was able to abuse women and girls over decades, across state lines and worldwide borders, despite several reports to officials at Michigan State University and USA Gymnastics.

"This toxic environment was the flawless place for a predator like Larry Nassar to flourish", said Wieber, who Tuesday became the fourth Olympian to sue the USOC, USA Gymnastics and Michigan State over alleged abuse by Nassar, along with Dantzscher, Aly Raisman and McKayla Maroney.

"My teammates and I were subjected (to) Larry Nassar every single month at the national team training center in Texas", Wieber said in a written statement.

Nassar is now serving up to 175 years in prison, but questions continue to swirl about whether powerful institutions could have done more to stop him.

McKayla Maroney, among of Ms. Wieber's team-mates on the 2012 USA gymnastics team, filed written testimony into this committee and explained her abuse from Dr. Nassar started off if she was 1 3.

Olympic gold medal gymnast Jordyn Wieber, 22, filed a lawsuit against Michigan State University, USA Gymnastics, the U.S. Olympic Committee for accusations similar to Maroney's, according to the Lansing State Journal in Michigan. "Telling my story has not been easy or enjoyable in any way. but I never thought I would be here saying this, because I thought no one would listen".
