Aly Raisman blasts USOC statement on USA Gymnastics resignations

The Latest: USA Gymnastics suspends ex-women's coach Geddert

Raisman- who read a statement on Friday during the fourth day of former USA Gymnastics and Michigan State doctor Larry Nassar's sentencing for the molestation of seven girls- posted a statement on Twitter Monday night in response to a statement by USOC.

So far, the judge who oversees the sentencing of the former sports doctor, Larry Nassar, said on Monday that almost 100 girls and women were "sister-survivor warriors".

Following testimonies against Larry Nassar, three top board members of the Olympic USA Gymnastics team have resigned.

More than 140 women and girls have requested to speak at the hearing. Nassar faces a minimum prison sentence of 25 to 40 years after pleading guilty to 10 counts of first-degree criminal sexual misconduct.

Michigan's Attorney General is reviewing how the university handled allegations regarding Nassar.

Michigan State University let go of Nassar a week after Miller's last appointment with him in August 2016, she said in court: "I'm possibly the last child you will ever assault", Miller said. Raisman has repeatedly criticised USA Gymnastics' handling of Nassar's case but on Monday night she also called out the USOC for taking credit for the resignations.

The judge overseeing the sentencing for former MI sports doctor Larry Nassar says victims are an "army" and "sister survivor warriors".

Raisman said the executive exits should be just the beginning of major changes at USA Gymnastics - without which more gymnasts would remain at risk.

Aly Raisman, right, and Simone Biles accused former Olympic team doctor Larry Nassar of abuse.

More than 100 victims of the disgraced doctor have reported sexual assaults to police, including several Olympic medallists from the team of American gymnasts.

AT&T has suspended their sponsorship of USA Gymnastics amid the sex abuse scandal. "But as we have said previously, any suggestion that the university covered up Nassar's horrific conduct is simply false".

Nassar, a disgraced former USA Gymnastics sports doctor, pleaded guilty previous year to sexual abuse involving a girl under 13 and two teenagers at Twistars.

"We believe this step will allow us to more effectively move forward in implementing change within our organization", CEO Kerry Perry said in a statement. Two alleged Nassar victims, Aly Raisman and Jordyn Wieber, were on the 2012 U.S. team.
