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.
