Simone Biles admits to being a victim of sexual assault by her former gymnastics team doctor Larry Nassar.

Nassar has been accused by over 140 female athletes, many of them claimed that they were silenced by big corporations including the USA Gymnastics.

Biles recently came forward with her #MeToo revelation via social media saying: "I, too, am one of the many survivors that was sexually abused by Larry Nassar. There are many reasons that I have been reluctant to share my story, but I know now that it is not my fault."

The Gymnastics organization responded to Biles’ horrific encounter with Nassar and stated:

"USA Gymnastics is absolutely heartbroken, sorry and angry that Simone Biles or any of our athletes have been harmed by the horrific acts of Larry Nassar. We are our athletes' advocates. USA Gymnastics will continue to listen to our athletes and our members in our efforts of creating a culture of empowerment with a relentless focus on athlete safety every single day."
