Aly Raisman blames USA Gymnastics for sexual abuse by team doctor

2016 Rio Olympics Gymnastics Aly Raisman Simone Biles

'I feel like there's a lot of articles about it, but nobody has said, "This is disgusting, this is what we're doing to change,"' said Raisman.

"I want people to know just because someone is nice to you and just because everyone is saying they're the best person, it does not make it okay for them to ever make you uncomfortable". Raisman tells 60 MINUTES that after the Rio Olympics she spoke to FBI investigators about Dr. Nassar. In exchange for Nassar's guilty plea, US prosecutors have agreed not to pursue charges in two additional incidents of alleged sexual crimes with minors.

Raisin, the captain of the 2012 and 2016 Olympic gold-medal winning teams, told "Today" show host Hoda Kobt that she first realized Dr. Larry Nassar had abused her after being interviewed by a USA Gymnastics investigator in 2015. "The "60 Minutes" interview tonight, this interview, this is just the beginning, I'm just getting started, and I am not going to stop until I get what I want, which is change". "She's young. She's only 23 years old".

"Aly's passion and concern for athlete safety is shared by USA Gymnastics", the organization added.

LaPook says he reported as much as he could while still being sensitive to Raisman.

"I want people to know that I really didn't know what was happening to me", Raisman said. She appeared on Sunday's "60 Minutes" to bravely talk further about it. "And she's kind of gone from someone who is impressionable and young and trying very hard to please everybody, to finally growing up and realizing, 'I need to please myself.' And I think what she's determined to do now is to just take charge of her own destiny".

Raisman also accused some top-ranking officials at USA Gymnastics of abhorrent behavior, claiming that she and her teammates from the 2016 Rio Games were ignored by a table of executives from the sport's governing body during their Hall of Fame induction this summer.

In August, Raisman criticized the way USA Gymnastics handled sexual assault complaints against Nassar and others involved with the organization.

"The last few months have not been easy for me", Raisman tells PEOPLE.

"I just thought he was weird". "I think he's a monster", Raisman told Today's Hoda Kotb.

She blames USA Gymnastics, which has a standing policy against adults being alone with minors, for not looking out for her and the other athletes.

"In the past year, Aly has become an advocate for many issues, and sharing her personal experience of abuse takes great courage", USA Gymnastics said. As a member of the U.S. National Team from 1995 to 2000, Antolin received treatment from Dr. Nassar for several years. When it's such a serious environment, that would be the world.

It was only later, she said, that she truly understood the extent to which she was being violated. Maroney also said Nassar abused her at the London Games. "I hope so", she wrote.

"I didn't know anything differently. And I- I don't think he does it on objective because, you know, I think he cares about me, '" Raisman told "60 Minutes".

In light of the sex abuse scandal, USA Gymnastics adopted a series of reforms in June that it said will better prevent and respond to future cases of abuse. "It could be a family friend".

"He would always bring me, you know, desserts or gifts. So you're so brainwashed to think, I thought he was so nice".
