“Most people know me as a gymnast, but I am also a survivor,” she said onstage. “I am among a huge number of young gymnasts abused by USA Gymnastics team doctor Larry Nassar. This man held a position of influence and power in the sport for more than 20 years, and the extent of his harm he caused is beyond comprehension.
“More than 130 young women have filed lawsuits alleging abuse by Nasser, and we may never know how many more may be suffering in silence,” she added. “I stand here for all of them.”
