Olympian McKayla Maroney Molested By Team Doctor
“Olympic gold medal-winning U.S. Gymnast McKayla Maroney has alleged she was molested by a former USA Gymnastics team doctor, adding her voice to the #MeToo movement where people are sharing experiences of sexual harassment and assault and becoming the most prominent athlete to go public with her claims against the physician.
In a statement posted to Twitter, Maroney, 21, alleged she was molested for years by former USA Gymnastics team doctor Larry Nassar, who is currently awaiting sentencing after pleading guilty to federal child pornography charges. “People should know that this is not just happening in Hollywood,” she wrote, in reference to the allegations about producer Harvey Weinstein.
“It started when I was 13 years old, and it didn’t end until I left the sport,” Maroney continued. “I had a dream to go to the Olympics, and the things that I had to endure to get there were unnecessary and disgusting.” Maroney ended her involvement with the sport in 2016.”
