Separate investigations launched against U.S. Olympic Committee following sexual abuse claims
Five-time Olympic medalist Simone Biles said she welcomes any investigation into allegations of sexual assault within USA Gymnastics, including claims some knew gymnasts were being abused but did nothing to intervene.
“It’s very saddening that somebody knew about it and didn’t speak up to protect their athletes when we go out to represent their country with our full hearts,” Biles said Friday.
Biles has alleged Dr. Larry Nassar sexually abused her while he worked as a doctor for the USA Gymnastics Team. Nassar has been convicted of sexual assault on a multitude of allegations.
