Nassar victims detail lawsuit against USA Olympic Committee, Michigan State, USA Gymnastics

Bonnie Knutson and Michael Kaplowitz

Maroney won global admiration during the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, as a member of the "Fierce Five" US gymnastics team that won a gold medal.

Maroney is among scores of women who have detailed the sexual abuse she experienced at the hands of the ex-Michigan State University physician - many of them similarly recalling how Nassar would use treats to not only earn their trust, but also to manipulate them into silence.

In 1996, Nassar was hired by MSU as a faculty member, and in the same year, he became team doctor for the Olympic women's gymnastics team.

The 22-year-old also did an interview with TODAY's Savannah Guthrie to discuss Nassar's assault.

"He was their little puppet, " said Jeanette Antolin, a former member of the us national team who trained with the Karolyis. The Karolyis made similar statements in a deposition in Larson's lawsuit. "I feel like if they really didn't know, it's because they set up the system to show they don't care what's going on".

The lawsuit also alleges that USA Gymnastics failed to reveal the abuse to the victims' families, the U.S. Olympic Committee, Michigan State University, and law enforcement agencies. "They demanded excellence from me, but they couldn't give it to us".

Will Ferrell taken to hospital after SUV 'flips' during two-car accident
As of 7:40 a.m. (PT), TMZ wrote that Ferrell has since been released from the hospital and didn't suffer any significant injuries. Ferrell wasn't driving the SUV, TMZ reports. "Three patients considered to have minor injuries were taken to local hospitals".

"With USA Gymnastics obviously, the board of directors all resigned but the people who are on the national team staff or in charge of the training camps every month, the ones who have the most interaction with the athletes, they're still there", she emphasized, "it's the same people in charge and I don't think that they're innocent at all".

Guthrie spent hours with the Karolyis at the ranch after the couple agreed to speak publicly for the first time since Martha Karolyi's retirement following the 2016 Olympics. "And now, the lack of accountability from USAG and Michigan State, have caused me and many other girls to remain shameful, confused, and disappointed", Wieber said in a statement.

Savannah Guthrie says she hates to miss a broadcast of NBC's "Today", but recently decided to make an exception.

A bad thing happened at Michigan State University.

Ms. Maroney and also hundreds of other gymnasts, each elite and aspiring, given announcements in two counties in MI earlier this year earlier Dr. Nassar has been sentenced to forty to 125 decades in prison for felony sexual activity in some of those scenarios, and also to 40 to 175 several years for comparable rates in another. "At no time did their lawyer jump in and say 'You can't answer that'".

"I heard during the testimonies that some of the parents were in the therapy room with their own child and Larry Nassar was performing this - and the parent couldn't see", Martha said. "How I could see?"
