Olympic Gymnast McKayla Maroney Accuses Team Doctor Of Repeatedly Abusing Her

By Mark Pygas

Former Olympic gymnast and gold medalist McKayla Maroney took to Twitter on Wednesday morning to accuse former team USA doctor Larry Nassar of sexually assaulting her for years, starting at the age of 13 under the guise of "medically necessary treatment." 

In a tweet, Maroney describes one incident that allegedly happened when she was 15. "For me, the scariest night of my life happened when I was 15  years old," the athlete starts. "I had flown all day and night with the team to get to Tokyo. He'd given me a sleeping pill for the flight, and the next thing I know, I was all alone with him in his hotel room getting a 'treatment.' I thought I was going to die that night."
