  • Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman looks on before throwing out a ceremonial first pitch before a game against the Kansas City Royals

Olympic gold medalist Aly Raisman said she was sexually abused by former USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar, according to her upcoming interview on CBS' "60 Minutes".

The USA Gymnastic association told 60 Minutes in a statement that they were "very sorry" to hear of Raisman's alleged abuse and that they would be working with her - and other victims - to keep their athletes safe moving forward.

Her "Fierce Five" teammate McKayla Maroney last month said Nassar had abused her. "Why not look at what about the culture?" she said on "60 Minutes".

"Why are we looking at why didn't the girls speak up?" she said. "I need this, '" Raisman said in an interview with The Associated Press and USA Today in August during the 2017 national championships.

Nassar is in jail awaiting sentencing after pleading guilty to possession of child pornography.

Raisman is not the first gymnast to accuse Nassar of abuse. She said that she was first treated by Nassar when she was 15 years old.

"I think that, you just want, you want to trust people and that he was just a disgusting person, he took advantage of so many people's trust", Raisman said.

"Whether or not he did it to a gymnast, they still knew him".

She went on to be the captain of the 2012 and 2016 Olympic teams.

Raisman said she spoke to FBI investigators after serving as national team captain at the 2016 Games in Rio de Janeiro.

The 23-year-old, a two-time world team champion, revealed that she spoken to the Federal Bureau of Investigation regarding the claims of sexual abuse levelled at Nassar after she led the American team at Rio 2016.

The former athlete, who claims to be "angry", wants to "just bring change" so that young gymnasts "never have to live this again".

According to the Post , Roem said on Tuesday night, as her margin of victory became clear, "Discrimination is a disqualifier". Andrea Jenkins this week became the first trans person of colour elected to any office in the USA , and people are overjoyed.

"Aly's passion and concern for athlete safety is shared by USA Gymnastics", the organization added.

Nassar was a trainer with USA Gymnastics as far back as 1986.

Jamie Dantzscher, 2000 Olympic bronze medalist; Jessica Howard, U.S. national champion in rhythmic gymnastics from 1999 to 2001; and Jeanette Antolin, who competed with the U.S. national team from 1995 to 2000, came forward earlier this year describing similar experiences to Maroney's and Raisman's.

He also faces charges in state court in MI, largely related to allegations that he digitally penetrated women during medical exams for his own sexual gratification.

"In the a year ago, Aly has become an advocate for many issues, and sharing her personal experience of abuse takes great courage", USA Gymnastics said.

USA Gymnastics launched an independent review of its policies in the wake of the allegations against Nassar in the summer of 2016, following reporting by the Indianapolis Star that highlighted chronic mishandling of abuse allegations against coaches and staff at some of its more than 3,500 clubs across the country. The federation also adopted several recommendations by Deborah Daniels, a former federal prosecutor who oversaw the review.
