Reigning Olympic all-around champion Simone Biles became the latest gymnast to say that former team doctor Larry Nassar sexually abused her. But lately I've felt broken and the more I try to shut off the voice in my head the louder it screams.

Minutes after Biles shared her story on Twitter, teammate Aly Raisman, another Nassar accuser, tweeted, "I am so proud of you".

"There are many reasons that I have been reluctant to share my story, but I know now it's not my fault".

Nassar will be sentenced this month over two cases in which he admits assaulting female gymnasts.

Over 140 people have accused Nassar of sexually abusing them. In total, Nassar is alleged to have abused over 120 young girls while he worked as medical professional, according to CNN.

Biles recalled being subjected to what was known as the "special" treatment, calling the behavior "completely unacceptable, disgusting, and abusive".

"I love this sport too much and I have never been a quitter. I know we will all get through this together". No, it was not my fault.

Nassar is the former Michigan State University and U.S. gymnastics doctor.

"As I continue to work through the pain, I kindly ask everyone to respect my privacy", she concludes.

Biles adds that she is heartbroken that she will train for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics in the same training facility where she says she was abused, and that she had been convinced "this horrific experience does not define me" by other friends and survivors coming forward with stories of assault.

Biles also called for scrutiny of USA Gymnastics, writing that, "We need to know why this was able to take place for so long and to so many of us". I am unique, smart, talented, motivated and passionate. I stand with you. I will compete with all my heart and soul every time I step into the gym.

"I won't let one man, and the others that enabled him, to steal my love and joy". The Michigan Department of Attorney General spokesperson expects 88 individuals to give victim impact statements in what is likely to be a remarkable reckoning for the largest sexual abuse scandal in the history of sports. It's expected to be at least a few days' worth of testimony in the courtroom with each victim detailing the abuse and damage Nassar caused to them.
