USA Gymnastics creates counseling services fund for abused gymnasts

10 February 2018

USA Gymnastics has established a fund it says it created to assist gymnasts who were victims of former sports doctor Larry Nassar.

A personal coach to U.S. gymnast Jordyn Wieber and owner of the Twistars training facility, Geddert was accused by many Nassar victims of requiring them to be treated by Nassar.

Victims and their advocates have criticized the U.S. Olympic Committee (USOC) and USAG for not acting on the complaints against Nassar, including a 2015 investigation.

Nassar, who previously received a 40-to-175-year sentence in Ingham County, Michigan, for sexual assault, was sentenced in neighboring Eaton County on Monday on a second set of charges. He will serve the sentences at the same time. He is serving a 60-year federal prison sentence for child pornography crimes. Do not cut, copy or lift any content from this website without our consent.

Nesbitt said the department's investigation started before Nassar's sentencing hearings, but she did not know exactly when it began or whether new complaints have changed its scope.

Almost 200 girls and women gave victim impact statements.

Geddert, whose national profile rose while training Lansing-area standout Jordyn Wieber, was suspended last month by USA Gymnastics until it completes its own investigation.

Michigan Attorney General's office is investigating MSU's handling of allegations against Nassar, which allegedly go back to 1997 and went unheeded until a newspaper exposed him in the fall of 2016.

Ernst says she wants to know why immediate action wasn't taken when leaders first heard about abuse allegations and why they failed to protect young athletes.

An anonymous member of Xavier's club gymnastics who survived sexual assault at a young age outside of gymnastics shared her reaction to hearing the testimonies from some of the 156 women who spoke out against Nassar in late January.

Boyce has said she and a fellow teenage teammate complained about Nassar in 1997.
