First Male Gymnast Alleges Sexual Abuse By Larry Nassar

Former gymnast and victim Kamerin Moore speaks at the sentencing hearing for Nassar in January

ESPN reports that the filing claims negligence by the USOC and USA Gymnastics and alleges that the organizations failed to follow proper protocols to monitor Nassar's behavior. The Lansing State Journal, part of the USA TODAY Network, reported previous year that more than a half dozen women or girls raised concerns about Nassar's actions to coaches, trainers, police or university officials between 1997 and 2015. "It is my hope that the legal process will hold them accountable".

Raisman, several high-profile gymnasts and two USA senators had been calling for his ouster for weeks. Kamerin, a member of the junior U.S. national team from 2008 to 2009, first described her sibling's troubling experience while recalling her own disturbing story, in which Nassar allegedly asked if he could "videotape" her during a procedure, during his sentencing hearing in January.

The complaints said that Nassar sexually abused Raisman, two-time Olympian who won medals in London and Rio de Janeiro, at the Karolyi Ranch in Texas, national and global competitions and the 2012 London Olympics.

USA Gymnastics and the USOC did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Associated Press.

Nassar pleaded guilty last year to molesting female athletes under the guise of medical treatment for almost 20 years, and in January and February was given two prison sentences in MI of 40 to 125 years, and 40 to 175 years.

According to the lawsuit, Nassar had unlimited access to Raisman and other athletes while they trained at the Karolyi Ranch, and a USA Gymnastics trainer was sometimes in the room as he digitally penetrated the girls, claiming he was performing "intravaginal therapy". That was after the disgraced former physician had parted ways with USA Gymnastics following a almost 30-year association, but before he was sacked by Michigan State University, where he spent two decades.

Raisman, who won gold medals for the USA gymnastics teams in 2012 and 2016, detailed the abuse she faced in her 2017 autobiography, Fierce: How Competing for Myself Changed Everything, and made her voice heard with powerful testimony at Nassar's court hearings in January. Nassar is behind bars after receiving prison sentences of up to hundreds of years. "It has become painfully clear that these organizations have no intention of properly addressing this problem", Raisman said in a statement.

The USOC statement did not address whether the sex abuse scandal played a role in Blackmun's departure.

USA Gymnastics and the USOC broke their stated mandates to protect children in their programs by not revealing Nassar's past misconduct to athletes and their parents or guardians, the lawsuit said.
