Guthrie pressed the Karolyis on how it was possible that they weren't aware of the abuse taking place at their facility.

Maroney, a member of the victorious USA team at the 2012 London Olympics, told Today Show's Savannah Guthrie that the abuse by Nassar started at her first meeting with him when she was 13 and continued for years afterwards.

McKayla Maroney is recalling the years of abuse she faced over the course of her gymnastics career at the hands of Larry Nassar. In doing so, she criticized the school administration's handling to the Nassar scandal and said "I no longer have the desire or the heart to support this administration going forward".

"USA Gymnastics is sorry that any gymnast was harmed by the despicable crimes Larry Nassar committed", the group said in a statement.

"Larry Nassar was the most prolific child molester in the history of this country", adds White.

The Karolyis spoke as part of a Dateline NBC special scheduled to air Sunday.

Roughly 200 athletes described being abused by Nassar, who is imprisoned for molesting athletes at the school and on the USA gymnastics team. All three gymnasts, and several others, say Nassar sexually abused them at the training center.

Guthrie spent hours with the Karolyis at the ranch after the couple agreed to speak publicly for the first time since Martha Karolyi's retirement following the 2016 Olympics. "I actually was like, "That makes sense, I don't want to tell anybody about this". "I decided I needed to just stay quiet and no one needs to know what happened to me", she said during a press conference Thursday.

Centre to take over Dawood's properties in Mumbai; SC rejects kin's plea
The two women had said that the seizures were illegal as they had not been duly served with the forfeiture notices. A bench of justices R K Agrawal and A M Sapre dismissed the plea, saying the properties belonged to Dawood Ibrahim.

For the athletes who were training almost eight to nine hours a day, Maroney said there was little food provided for them. "At no time did their lawyer jump in and say 'You can't answer that'".

Nassar spent almost three decades at USA Gymnastics before being fired in 2015 after complaints about his behaviour.

Michigan State has appointed a pair of new faculty representatives as it navigates through an NCAA investigation and the continued fallout of the Larry Nassar scandal.

After listening to survivors testify on how he would abuse them under the guise of medical treatment for days on end, Nassar in January was handed up to 175 years behind bars on sexual abuse charges.

Behind the scenes, however, she claims Nassar was grooming her by sneaking her food during her training, when coaches were carefully monitoring the athletes' intake.

Maroney first shared her allegations against Nassar on Twitter last October, having been emboldened by the #MeToo movement sweeping through Hollywood.

Martha Karolyi denied having any knowledge about Nassar's pattern of abuse.
