Simone Biles Allegedly Abused by Doctor Larry Nassar

Larry Nassar

It is impossibly hard to relive these experiences and it breaks my heart even more to think that as I work towards my dream of competing in Tokyo 2020, I will have to continually return to the same training facility where I was abused. It was not until Olympians Aly Raisman and McKayla Maroney reported abuse by Nassar to USA Gymnastics that the governing body made a decision to call the Federal Bureau of Investigation - five weeks after Nichols' initial report. She said the abuse continued over five years and three continents.

"Perhaps you have figured it out by now, but little girls don't stay little forever", Stephens added.

Markham recalled, according to ESPN, how her daughter had told her that Nassar put his "ungloved fingers in me" before explaining how she had then endured a period of self-loathing and drug use before taking her own life aged 23 in 2009.

The 22-year-old named convicted sex offender Dr. Larry Nassar as her repeat abuser.

Donna Markham, who was among the first of almost 100 witnesses expected to speak, claimed her daughter Chelsea saw Nassar for treatment when aged 10 in 1995.

While delivering her victim impact statement during Nassar's sentencing hearing Tuesday, Jennifer Rood Bedford, a former volleyball player at Michigan State University, shared details of her abuse before going on to plead with the doctor to "be a better man". Stephens told the MI court that Nasser started abusing her from the age of six and that her parents did not believe her when she told them.

Instead, they went out for a drink, and they've been seeing each other since, the source told Page Six . He and Jones met in 2009 when she hosted "Saturday Night Live", on which he then starred.

Raisman said on Twitter that she would not be attending the sentencing because it was "too traumatic", but that a letter she wrote will be read in court.

Antolin asked that Nassar receive the maximum sentence, which will be determined on Friday. He also worked for Indianapolis-based USA Gymnastics, which trains Olympians.

Nassar has pleaded guilty to molesting females with his hands, often while their parents were in the room.

"It all started with him", she said, describing her daughter's downward spiral into drug abuse.

"The guilt I feel for that is hard to fathom", he said. She had flown all day and night to get to Tokyo. "I think that when somebody in high power is telling you to be quiet, right when they realised you are abused, I think that that is a threat".
