Victims of Nassar abuse speak out

McKayla Maroney attends the New York Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children's 2018 Luncheon on April 17 in New Yo

Former USA Gymnastics women's national team coordinator Martha Karolyi and her husband Bela tell NBC they were unaware of the abusive behavior by a former national team doctor now serving decades in prison.

Nassar is serving a life sentence after almost 200 victims testified that he sexually abused them over decades, a scandal that shook the gymnastics world and prompted a series of civil investigations into the sport and the U.S. Olympic Committee.

Wieber, a gold medalist on the 2012 Olympic team, said she and the other girls were betrayed by USA Gymnastics and the USOC.

Maroney provided a written victim impact statement to be read during Nassar's sentencing hearing, telling him that he "left scars on my psyche that may never heal". They have been named in lawsuits.

The former gymnast argued in her suit that Indianapolis-based USA Gymnastics failed to protect her despite repeated warnings years earlier about coach William McCabe.

Attorneys Mo Aziz of Abraham, Watkins, Nichols, Sorrels, Agosto & Aziz, Texas attorney Michelle Simpson Tuegel, and MI attorney James White, all filed lawsuits on Wednesday, April 18, 2018 alleging that women ranging from age 14 to age 41 were sexually molested by Larry Nassar.

"I think they felt like it was time for them to tell their side of the story", Guthrie said. The abuse continued at the Olympics and stopped only when she left the sport, Maroney said previous year. The complete history of his perversion is not yet completely known, but some reports claim he may have sexually molested around 250 girls and women under the guise of medical treatment. Michigan State has seen a president resign and a dean arrested on misdemeanor charges associated with accusations he mishandled a complaint about Nassar in 2014.

"USA Gymnastics recognizes the courage displayed by Jordyn Wieber and others who have shared their experiences with abuse".

Three months after Nassar's sentencing, the fallout is continuing for the organizations through which he accessed his victims.

She also took aim at the institutions - USA Gymnastics, the United States Olympic Committee and Michigan State University - which she has accused of allowing Nassar to thrive as a predator.

Maroney, pictured here in 2013, retired from gymnastics in 2016.

In her first public remarks since revealing last fall that she was among Nassar's victims, Maroney said Tuesday that she wondered if the heights she reached during her career came at too high a price.

"The whole thing is just like an explosion, a bomb exploding", Bela Karolyi said in the NBC interview, a portion of which was shown Friday on the "Today" programme.

Lorincz said she was "saddened but not surprised" by Viventi's email.
