Fourth USA Gymnastics board member resigns after abuse scandal

He had pleaded guilty to sexual assault charges.

Additionally, the USOC called for USA Gymnastics staff to complete SafeSport training within three months and ethics training within six months.

By Monday, January 22, 2018, four of the existing board members had already resigned in the wake of the damning testimony provided by Aly Raisman at the hearing.

"USA Gymnastics will comply with the USOC requirements", Leslie King, a spokeswoman for USA Gymnastics, said in an email.

In addition to the Nassar situation, Paula Lavigne and Nicole Noren of ESPN's Outside the Lines published a report Friday detailing efforts made by Michigan State to withhold information regarding cases involving sexual assault and violence against women. On Friday, Michigan State University athletic director Mark Hollis announced his retirement at an emotional news conference.

"Larry Nassar was cleared to practice again under new guidelines that weren't actually enforced", said Thomashow. He also worked for USA Gymnastics, the sport's national governing body.As outside investigations continue, more people could lose jobs at the university and elsewhere.

Rachael Denhollander, who filed a complaint against Nassar on August 29, 2016, outlined what she gained - and what was lost - by coming forward about the sexual abuse she suffered as a teen and by advocating on behalf of other victims.

Denhollander's allegations that Nassar sexually assaulted her when she received treatment for lower back pain as a 15-year-old gymnast in 2000 were first reported by The Indianapolis Star on September 12, 2016.

"We still have to hold these organisations accountable".

Twitter reacts as Southampton confirm signing - 'Exciting times'
Mauricio Pellegrino has insisted that Southampton "are working really hard" to get a deal over the line for Monaco striker Guido Carrillo .

"My heart breaks for the survivors of Larry Nassar's disgusting crimes", said US Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, whose department will also investigate Michigan State University.

Nassar graduated from Michigan State in 1993 and eventually began serving as an assistant professor and physician at the school.

The USOC's investigation into how Nassar was able to abuse victims for years will include looking at whether any USOC officials themselves looked the other way. While there has been no evidence that Simon or Hollis knew Nassar was sexually abusing girls and women, some of the women and girls who accused him said they complained to university employees as far back as the late 1990s. More than 150 accusers recounted their stories in the courtroom.

Even though Nassar's sentencing is done, Raisman said that the work of the "army of survivors" is not, calling out USA Gymnastics, Michigan State University and the U.S. Olympic Committee as groups that need to be subject to more scrutiny.

In 2015, USA Gymnastics - the sport's top governing body - quietly cut ties with Nassar over allegations about his professional care.

Also on Friday, the US House Energy and Commerce Committee announced it would launch an investigation into sexual abuse in organised sports following Nassar's case.

With regard to head coach Tom Izzo's basketball program, former undergraduate assistant Travis Walton was alleged to have punched one woman and sexually assaulted another.

The allegations against Nassar became public in August 2016, when Rachel Denhollander contacted the Indianapolis Star, which is part of the USA TODAY Network, and said she'd been abused by Nassar.
