"This toxic environment was the ideal place for a predator like Larry Nassar to flourish", said Wieber, who Tuesday became the fourth Olympian to sue the USOC, USA Gymnastics and Michigan State over alleged abuse by Nassar, along with Dantzscher, Aly Raisman and McKayla Maroney.

At the end of Wednesday's hearing, Sen. She blasted not only him, but also USA Gymnastics, the U.S. Olympic Committee and Michigan State University, where Nassar had a sports medicine practice.

"We love the willingness of these athletes - who share in our determination to root out abuse in youth sport regulating bodies to share their tales", even Senator Jerry Moran, Republican of Kansas along with the chairman of this sub committee, " said "and assist within our investigation to protect all U.S.O.C. athletes, at all levels, in every sport.

A second hearing for testimony from representatives of Michigan State University, USA Gymnastics and the U.S. Olympic Committee is tentatively scheduled for May 22.

Nassar, 54, pleaded guilty to molesting patients and possessing child pornography and was sentenced to spend the rest of his life in prison earlier this year after roughly 200 women gave statements against him in two courtrooms over 10 extraordinary days. Oh, and she helped put Nassar behind bars for up to 170 years. "I don't want to tell anybody about this, '" she recalled. "I had done nothing wrong except speak the truth.their respnse was to blame the victim".

In 2016, USA Gymnastics had Maroney sign a nondisclosure in a secret settlement, according to the Associated Press.

Wieber alleged the assaults occurred when she thought she was receiving medical treatment. "My parents trusted USA Gymnastics and Larry Nassar to take care of me and we were betrayed by both", said Weiber on Tuesday, while announcing the lawsuit.

"Within the gymnastics world, there's no question we need to rebuild from the ground up so this never happens again", Maroney said.

MI U.S. Sen. Gary Peters asked the athletes about their assessment of how MSU has handled the situation, and what they would ask MSU officials if they had the opportunity to speak with them.

"There are also things about the culture that are messed up that (Nassar) used against us", she said.

He figured out his victims' vulnerabilities and exploited them, casting himself as the nice guy in a demanding, high-stress atmosphere, she said.

"Your coaches are just always watching you".
