Aly Raisman alleges she was abused by USA Gymnastics doctor

Three-time Olympic gold medalist Aly Raisman is the second member of the London Olympic’s Fierce Five to accuse USA Gymnastics team doctor of abuse.

In an interview with “60 Minutes” that will air on Sunday, Raisman shares her story of abuse.

“Why are we looking at why didn't the girls speak up,” Raisman said. “Why not look at what about the culture? What did USA Gymnastics do, and Larry Nassar do, to manipulate these girls so much that they are so afraid to speak up?

Fellow Fierce Five member McKayla Maroney spoke out in October about being sexually assaulted by USA Gymnastics’ team doctor Larry Nassar over several years. 

Accused by dozens of women for molestation of young athletes at his Michigan State University clinics and the US Women's Team, Nassar is currently imprisoned after pleading guilty for child pornography. 

Nassar is still being sued by more than 125 women who claim he disguised his abuse as medical treatments.
