'We suffered and continue to suffer': Simone Biles, elite gymnasts blast FBI over failing to stop Larry Nassar abuse


Gymnastic superstar Simone Biles through tears blamed the FBI, USA Gymnastics and the United States Olympic and Paralympic Committee at a Senate panel Wednesday for allowing disgraced former USA Gymnastics team doctor Larry Nassar to abuse dozens of women and children. 

“USA Gymnastics and the United States Olympic and Paralympic Committee knew that I was abused by their official team doctor long before I was ever made aware of their knowledge,” Biles told the Senate Judiciary Committee.

“We suffered and continue to suffer, because no one at the FBI, USAG, or the USOPC did what was necessary to protect us,” Bile said. “We have been failed.” 

Fellow elite gymnastic athletes Aly Raisman, McKayla Maroney and Maggie Nichols are also testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee on the FBI’s failures to investigate 2015 sexual abuse allegations against Nassar.
