Ms. Raisman said she suffers from depression, anxiety, and fear stemming from the abuse, which took place between 2010 and 2015 at the famed Karolyi training ranch in Huntsville, Tex., and elsewhere in the United States, as well as in Europe and Australia.

Nassar has been sentenced in multiple courts to up to 300 years in prison for sexually abusing young people under the guise of medical treatment.

He will most likely spend the rest of his life in prison after pleading guilty to federal child pornography charges and 10 counts of criminal sexual conduct in MI.

Jacob Moore, a gymnast who competed for the USA men's junior national team from 2015-17, added his name to an amended complaint against disgraced physician Larry Nassar on Wednesday.

Additional reporting from Newsy affiliate CNN. The suits claim that individuals associated with all of those organizations shirked their responsibility to report suspicion of Nassar's behavior despite more than two decades of warning signs and complaints from girls he was abusing. The lawsuit says that the USOC was "aware, at the highest levels of its organization, that Defendant Nassar had molested Olympic and National Team level gymnasts".

Raisman further argued that the organizations put "their quest for money and medals above the safety" of their athletes, alleging that the USOC and USAG failed to intervene and discipline Nassar before he was officially removed from his position.

Lasmar says "we will try to be within that deadline for him to play for his club and Brazil". Neymar has scored 28 goals and provided 16 assists for the Ligue 1 leaders this season.

The USOC said on Wednesday that its chief executive officer, Scott Blackmun, was resigning from his position for medical reasons.

Raisman delivered a powerful victim impact statement during the sentencing, saying "You are pathetic to think someone would feel sorry for you".

The USOC has apologized and promised to do more for victims, including conduct an independent third-party investigation, and every member of the board of USA Gymnastics resigned, at their request, in the wake of revelations of the extent of the abuse. "Why isn't the USOC here right now?" she asked.

BuzzFeed News has reached out to Raisman's legal representation, to USA Gymnastics and the US Olympic Committee.

Aly's attorney, John Manly, said in a statement that the USOC and USA Gymnastics led "a conspiracy to silence victims and cover-up the largest child sex abuse scandal in history", according to the Washington Post. But the group waited more than a month to alert the Federal Bureau of Investigation and then failed to inform Michigan State University, where Nassar had his medical practice and continued to abuse girls until he was publicly exposed a year later.
