Ms Wieber, who won a gymnastics team gold during the 2012 games in London, described herself in a victim impact statement as one of 140 survivors of sexual assault by Larry Nassar. "I ask that you respect my privacy during this hard time".

"You took away our passion and our dreams", Raisman told Nassar, who is facing sentencing for sexually abusing her and many other gymnasts.

"This group of women you so heartlessly abused are now a force and you are nothing", Raisman said.

"I applaud Aly and all the girls who came forward", said Kormann, who was head coach for the U.S. men's team from 1996-2001. "I can not adequately capture the level of disgust I feel when I think about how this happened". "But did they reach out when I came forward? No".

She spoke for roughly 15 minutes and addressed the letter Nassar wrote to the judge Rosemarie Aquilina, in which he said she had turned his sentencing into a "media circus" and complained about the effect hearing his victim's stories were having on his psyche. "All of us will persevere, move past what you've taken from us and be better". "You were never the problem, but you are so much the solution".

"I thought that training for the Olympics would be the hardest thing I would ever had to do", Wieber said to Nassar, while fighting back tears.

Of the 60 minutes and over 50 plays in an National Football League game the outcome often comes down to a single snap. Church was called for unnecessary roughness on the play, and Gronkowski seemed woozy on his feet.

Nassar is being sentenced on 10 counts of first-degree sexual abuse, to which he pleaded guilty.

Tom Izzo's statement on the Larry Nasser sex-abuse case, has drawn a sharp rebuke from Lynn Raisman, mother of Olympian Aly Raisman. He "showered her with attention and affection and became a trusted friend".

One after one, gymnasts and other victims of disgraced former sports doctor Larry Nassar stepped forward in a MI courtroom over the past week to recount the sexual abuse and emotional trauma he inflicted on them as children.

With tears in her eyes, Wieber talked about a shin injury that kept her from qualifying for the all-around competition, now questioning Nassar's medical treatment at the time. He already has been sentenced to 60 years in prison for child pornography crimes.

Raisman also declared that Team USA gymnastics was "rotting from the inside" due to their handling of the Nassar fallout, and she urged new leader Kerry Perry to make things right.
