USA Gymnastics ends agreement with Karolyi Ranch

USA Gymnastics ends agreement with Karolyi Ranch

"It is impossibly hard to relive these experiences and it breaks my heart even more to think that as I work towards my dream of competing in Tokyo 2020, I will have to continually return to the same training facility where I was abused", she wrote. "He left scars on my psyche that may never go away".

Almost 100 women are during Nassar's four-day sentencing hearing in MI this week.

The student newspaper, the State News, ran an editorial today calling for Simon's resignation.

The Karolyi Ranch was created by legendary gymnastics coaches Bella and Marta Karolyi and has been the training site for the USA national team since 2001 and the Olympic team since 2011.

"You even had the audacity to abuse me in my room, in my own bed, at the Olympic games in Sydney", she said.

The former disgraced gymnastics doctor accused of sexually abusing more than a hundred young girls has cried to a judge in a letter read in court on Thursday claiming it was too hard to listen to his victims' stories in the courtroom.


Nassar pleaded guilty to 10 counts of criminal sexual conduct in November.

He already faces 60 years in prison after being convicted of child pornography charges.

MLivereports she was one of the first women to publicly accuse the doctor of sexually assaulting athletes, passing off the abuse as specialized medical treatment.

"Larry Nassar deserves to spend the rest of his life in prison, not only because of what he did to me, my teammates and so many other little girls", Maroney said.

"Spending four or five days listening to them is significantly minor considering the hours of pleasure you had at their expense and ruining their lives", Aquilina said.
"We have a voice".

The answer to that question lies in the failure of not one, but three major institutions to stop him - Michigan State University, USA Gymnastics and the Untied States Olympic Committee.

A Michigan State spokesman declined to comment about Boyce's interaction with Simon, and there is no indication of whether Simon would attend Friday's hearing.

The judge has been praising each speaker and criticizing Nassar.

Earlier this week, USA Gymnastics denied reports that it would seek a $100,000 fine from Maroney if she spoke out against Nassar at his sentencing hearing, saying in a statement that it "has not sought and will not seek any money from McKayla Maroney for her fearless statements made in describing her victimization and abuse by Larry Nassar, nor for any victim impact statements she wants to make to Larry Nassar at this hearing or at any subsequent hearings related to his sentencing". At another point, Aquilina said she would allow someone "to do to him what he did to others" if the U.S. Constitution allowed cruel punishment.

On Jan. 31, Nassar will get another sentence for sexual assaults at a Lansing-area gymnastics club in a different county. Maggie Nichols, Jantzi's star gymnast who, at 14, made the USA women's national team, was speaking with Aly Raisman, captain of the 2012 and 2016 gold-medal-winning Olympic teams. He was allowed to go back to work at Michigan State University and continue molesting girls. He and Martha Karolyi would bring their gymnasts there to train when they were personal coaches, and they also ran summer camps for non-elite gymnasts at the remote and rustic site. Jamie Dantzscher, a 2000 Olympian, spoke Thursday.

She wrote that Nassar also abused her twice while she was competing in the 2012 Olympics. She dismissed it as "mumbo jumbo".
