McKayla Maroney says Larry Nassar molested her hundreds of times”

Olympic gold medalist McKayla Maroney says she was molested "hundreds of times" by former US Gymnastics and Michigan State doctor Larry Nassar.

Maroney also revealed in the "Dateline" episode airing Sunday that Nassar molested her "hundreds" of times starting at age 13 and lasting until she retired from the sport.

Maroney also said Nassar told her that his abusive treatment was part of her "sacrifice" to get to the Olympics, and to keep it secret as others wouldn't understand.

She told senators the current culture of elite gymnastics lends itself to it, describing situations where Nassar would touch her all over her body in the middle of a crowded gym.

"I actually was like, 'That makes sense".

Both Wieber and Dantzscher have previously testified against Nassar and said they hope that Congress is able to get more answers out of Michigan State, USA Gymnastics and the USOC than they have been able to get. "It didn't seem they cared about anything else", Maroney said at the luncheon, according to NBC News.

Wieber was joined on the stand by three other athletes, one of them being fellow Olympic gymnast Jamie Dantzscher.

His first state prison sentence was given to him in January after a sentencing hearing during which 156 victim impact statements were read, including one that was read on Maroney's behalf.

McKayla Maroney appears on The Today Show to talk about Larry Nassar abuse on April 18, 2018.

In an interview with Dr. Mary Pulido, executive director of N.Y.S.P.C.C., Maroney said that since coming to terms with her abuse, there are days when she almost rethinks her gymnastics career. Maroney said Nassar won her over by buying her bread after grueling workouts.

On Tuesday, Ms. Wieber filed a lawsuit against U.S.A. Gymnastics, the U.S. Olympic Committee, and Michigan State, alleging that the organizations could have done more to prevent Dr. Nassar from abusing athletes. He was sentenced to 60 years in federal prison for possession of child pornography in December as well.

The 22-year-old gymnast originally spoke on the topic last October, when she went public on her Twitter account. "Alumni come up to me and wonder, 'How could this happen?" I definitely see a future where athletes are safe and succeeding, and I think this next generation is gonna be even stronger with everything that we're doing.my team won gold medals in spite of U.S.A. Gymnastics, M.S.U., and the U.S.O.C., and they don't build champions, they break them.
