    How tragic is it that it went on for so long, and the girls thought that was just the way it was! The #metoo movement is so overdue.

    seems to me there must be some level of knowledge/complicity involving the Karolyi's...they were USA Gymnastics

    Gymnastics was very important to my daughter but some of the other athletes and a couple coaches have been very damaging to her and the damage may never be fully repaired. Gymnastics is still a major part of how she sees herself despite the seeminly unnecessary difficulties.

    A daughter of a friend of mine was allegedly treated sexually inappropriately by her college volleyball coach to force her to transfer. Do not know the details and that happened a couple of decades ago.

    Later add-on.

    The facts that Nassar was a physician rather than a coach bothers me the most.
