As a freshman, OU gymnast Maggie Nichols made history when she became the first Sooner to record a perfect 10 on three events, leading the team to a national championship.

“I am making the decision to tell my traumatic story and hope to join the forces with my friends and teammates to bring about true change. Up until now, I was identified as Athlete A by USA gymnastics, the US Olympic Committee and Michigan State University,” Nichols wrote in a statement released Tuesday by attorney John Manly. “I want everyone to know that he did not do this to Athlete A, he did it to Maggie Nichols.”
