Top Leadership of USA Gymnastics Resigns over Team Doctor’s Sexual Abuse

Back in the United States, the chairman of USA Gymnastics and several board members have resigned, amid the high-profile trial of the team doctor, Larry Nassar, who has admitted to sexually assaulting and abusing girls and young women for decades. This is former gymnast Kamerin Moore testifying in court Monday.

Kamerin Moore: “Larry, initially, I wasn’t going to come here and say anything to you, not because I didn’t have anything to say, but because I didn’t want this child I’m carrying to be in the same room as a child molester. Even unborn life shouldn’t be subjected to that. That’s how deeply I hate you for what you did to me.”
