The six-time Olympic medalist told 60 Minutes that she first spoke to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about the disgraced doctor in 2016, and doesn't understand why it took so long for the allegations to go public. Raisman tells her story to Dr. Jon LaPook for a 60 Minutes report to be broadcast Sunday, Nov. 12 at 7:00 p.m. ET/PT. I'm really upset because it's been - I care a lot you know, when I see these young girls that come up to me, and they ask for pictures or autographs, whatever it is, I just ...

Raisman, now 23, started seeing Nassar when she was 15 and she details the abuse in her book "Fierce", which will be released on November 14th.

As the most prominent accuser thus far, Raisman is hoping to see change in the sport she loves so much saying in a clip: "I am angry". Raisman said that she spoke to FBI investigators after the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, but the Indianapolis Star later reported that USA Gymnastics didn't report sexual abuse allegations until the athlete or a parent did so. Last month, McKayla Maroney, 21, detailed how Nassar began molesting her at the age of 13 at a U.S. national team training camp. Nassar, who is in jail awaiting sentencing after pleading guilty in July to three charges of child pornography, has not publicly commented on allegations Raisman's allegations.

Nassar is now jailed and awaiting sentencing in MI.

Aly Raisman won two silver medals at the 2016 Rio Olympics as well as team gold. According to CBS News, more than 130 women, including former athletes who were treated by Nassar, have filed civil suits alleging that Nassar abused them. Raisman asked. "Why not look at what about the culture?"

The preview did not reveal the extent of the alleged assaults and for how long they occurred, with Nassar having been the team doctor during the 2012 Games in London.

Raisman's revelation comes a month after fellow Fierce Fiver McKayla Maroney accused Nassar of alleged abuse.

Raisman has been an outspoken advocate for survivors of sexual abuse.

Raisman has been critical of the way her sport's governing body handled sexual abuse claims and has called for sweeping changes in leadership at USA Gymnastics, including the removal of the chairman of the board Paul Parilla.
