n Monday, January 15th, Olympic gold winner Simone Biles added her name to the list of gymnasts that were molested by doctor Larry Nassar. Biles posted a letter on her social media accounts, coming forward about being abused by Nassar. Over 100 victims have come forward regarding Nassar, who faces a weeklong sentencing hearing.
"I too am one of the many survivors that was sexually abused by Larry Nassar," Biles wrote, hashtagging "#metoo" in her Twitter post.
Biles' post is similar to the ones posted by other members of the "Fierce Five" from the 2012 Olympics.
Gabby Douglas, Aly Raisman, and McKayla Maroney have all disclosed information regarding Nassar. They will not be attending Nassar’s hearing.
At the hearing, each woman will come forward with their statement regarding Nassar's horrible abuse.
According to NBC news, the statements will detail how Nassar “violated them with ungloved hands, using his reputation and invasive ‘treatments’ to mask serial sexual assaults.”
The first woman to come forward was Rachael Denhollander. She accused Nassar in the summer of 2016.
"What people need to understand is these aren't just anonymous people," Denhollander said.
“These were real little girls, some of them as young as 6 years old,” she said in a statement. “These were real young women who are suffering devastating consequences now and this could have been avoided.”
Biles, like many of the victims, are not just addressing Nassar, but also USA Gymnastics.
The organization made him an Olympic doctor and has come under fire for their statements and “victim shaming.” They allegedly tried to silence victims, and enabled Nassar.
Nassar pled guilty to charges of sexually assaulting seven girls, however, all of his accusers are going to be allowed to speak.
The victims will give their statements in different ways: some will stand and speak directly to Nassar. Others will have an audio recording played, and then others will have their statements read by the prosecutor.
