Gymnast Biles says she was abused by now-imprisoned doctor

Four-time Olympic champion Simone Biles joined the #MeToo movement after a shocking declaration accusing former US gymnastics team doctor Larry Nassar of sexually abuse.

And superstar gymnast Simone Biles added her name Monday to the growing list of athletes that Larry Nassar abused.

More than 130 women have accused Nassar of abuse during his 29-year tenure as a physician for USA Gymnastics and Michigan State University.

As previously reported, Nassar pleaded guilty to 10 counts of sexual assault and was sentenced in a separate case in which he was found to have received and possessed 37,000 images of child pornography in November.

Bangladesh, Myanmar agree to complete repatriation of Rohingyas in two years

USA Today noted that Nassar will be sentenced this week on seven sexual assault charges in federal court - and is expected to receive life in prison. Another gold medalist, Aly Raisman, tweeted Monday that she would not attend the sentencing "because it is too traumatic for me". No, it was not my fault.

International Gymnastics Federation president Morinari Watanabe told AFP on Tuesday that his governing body will set up a victim support body in the wake of the abuse of children by a former US team doctor.

She called Nassar's "special treatment" "unacceptable, disgusting and abusive" and said she had wondered whether being a victim was her own fault.

Biles is a three-time all-round world champion gymnast who won four gold medals at the 2016 Rio Olympics and emerged as one of the most inspirational athletes at those games. According to CNN, more than 140 young women have come forward to accuse Larry Nassar of abuse.

"I am not afraid to tell my story anymore", she began.

Biles said she was compelled to come forward after "hearing the fearless stories of my friends and other survivors".

"USA Gymnastics' support is unwavering for Simone and all athletes who courageously came forward to share their experiences", the organization said in a release. "I Pray the rosary every day for forgiveness".
