Aly Raisman is finally detailing her chilling experiences with Dr. Larry Nassar, RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal.
The Olympic gold medalist, 23, recalled how she first met the disgraced doctor in Australia in 2010 at the insistence of a national team staff member.
“’You have to see him,’ she insisted,” she wrote. “’He’s the best there is, and it’s a huge honor that he agrees to work with the team. Seriously, you won’t regret it.’ I didn’t want to be labeled as uncooperative, so finally I said okay.”
“Larry Nassar came to my hotel room,” she continued. “At first, I didn’t think too much of the massage. There were two other people in the room, and I was wearing leggings. There was something about the massage that made me uncomfortable, but the staff member’s words stuck in my head.”
She detailed how he put her at ease and she “remembered feeling grateful that he understood [her].”

She declined to go into further detail of what happened that night, but noted that she saw other doctors throughout her career that made her feel more comfortable than Nassar did.
“I dreaded being worked on,” she said of Nassar. “Larry had promised he could help ease the aches and pains that come with high-level gymnastics. He assured me that he knew just how to do it, too. The first time I met him, I was fifteen and in a foreign country without my parents. He was a doctor. All the adults loved him and he were constantly singing his praises…who was I, a mere teenager with no medical training, to say any different, or to question his methods?”
Finally, USA Gymnastics president Steve Penny called her in July 2015 to have her speak to an investigator looking into claims that Nassar abused gymnasts.
