Aly Raisman says she was sexually abused by United States national team doctor

Raisman is also releasing a book, Fierce, set to be released Tuesday. Nassar, who was USA Gymnastics' team doctor for almost two decades, was sacked in 2015 and is facing nearly two dozen sexual assault charges against him; he's also set to be sentenced next month on three federal child pornography charges.

As part of the 60 Minutes interview, Raisman said, "Why are we looking at why didn't the girls speak up?"

More than 140 women are now suing Nassar and his former employer, Michigan State University, as well as USA Gymnastics and other defendants. Raisman asked. "Why not look at what about the culture?"

Raisman's allegations follow allegations from teammate McKayla Maroney, a two-time Olympic medalist who accused Nassar of sexually abusing her throughout her career.

Raisman is the latest gymnast to speak out against Nassar after Jessica Howard, the U.S. national rhythmic gymnastics champion from 1999 to 2001, and Jeanette Antolin, a Pan American Games silver medallist, also revealed they had been the victim of sexual abuse on the same programme in February.

Nassar is also facing 22 counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct and 11 counts of third-degree criminal sexual conduct stemming from the allegations of sexual abuse made against him.

"I am angry. I'm really upset because it's been..."

In the Sunday show 60 Minutes, which was broadcast on Friday, Aly Raisman said that he had undergone the first "treatment" of Dr. Nassar at the age of 15 years. In a statement to "60 Minutes", it added that "USA Gymnastics is very sorry that any athlete has been harmed". He has been sued by over 130 women, and is in MI awaiting trial for over 22 state charges, including the possession of child pornography.

Dantzscher also filed a lawsuit against Nassar in California last September as "Jane Doe". He also faces charges in state court in MI, largely related to claims that he digitally penetrated women during medical exams. I can't. Every time I look at them, every time I see them smiling, I just think ... "These girls, they should be comfortable going to USA Gymnastics and saying 'I need help, I want therapy".

The scandal in the sport led to the resignation of USA Gymnastics chief executive Steve Penny in March of this year.

They told 60 Minutes USA Gymnastics has since adopted a "safe sport policy" that requires mandatory reporting of suspicions of sexual abuse.
