After former US team doctor was given sixty years in prison for child abuse images, gymnast Aly Raisman sharply criticized USA Gymnastics, Michigan state and US Olympic committee in a series of tweets.

"We must look at the organizations that protected Nassar; @USAGym @TeamUSA @michiganstateu Until we understand the flaws in their systems, we can't be sure something like this won’t happen again. This is bigger than Larry. Those who looked other way need to be held accountable 2."


"I fear that there are still people working at these organizations who put money, medals and reputation above the safety of athletes. @michiganstateu @TeamUSA @USAGym."


"I wish @USAGym understood how painful & hurtful it is that they just don't seem to care. I am so devastated and disappointed in how they've handled this."



Raisman is one of the gymnasts who were sexually abused by Larry Nassar under the guise of treatment. 

The Olympic champion spoke about the abuse in her book "Fierce". She has also vowed to keep speaking up against USAG until she sees change. 

The 23 year old gymnast has previously blasted the organization for poorly handling Nassar's sexual abuse.

Nassar worked for USA Gymnastics for three decades and Michigan State University for two decades. During that time, he sexually abused more than 140 female athletes.

Raisman's teammate Gabby Douglas and Mckayla Maroney has also accused Nassar of sexually abusing them.
