USA Gymnastics announced Monday that the leadership of its board of directors has resigned amid the continuing fallout over the scandal surrounding disgraced former team doctor Larry Nassar. "USA Gymnastics needs to focus on supporting the courageous survivors", Blackmun said in a statement.

"Larry, you do realize now that we, this group of women you so heartlessly abused over such a long period of time, are now a force, and you are nothing", Raisman said.

More than 100 women and girls have given statements at Nassar's sentencing hearing in MI or have had statements read on their behalf.

John Geddert, the 2011 USA World Team and 2012 USA Olympic Team head coach, was suspended Monday under a provision in the USA Gymnastics bylaws that allows interim measures to be taken to "to ensure the safety and well-being of the gymnastics community".

Some of the victims went further and alleged that the organization sought to buy silence with regard to the abuse by Nassar.

"The USOC released a statement shamelessly taking credit for a few USAG resignations (note: not fired) as though they're addressing the problem", tweeted Raisman, renewing her calls for an independent investigation into USA Gymnastics.

Nasser has already admitted to molesting scores of elite athletes including top Olympic gymnasts Simon Biles and Aly Raisman. "I have never met you and I know you weren't around for most of this".
