The former head of USA Gymnastics was arrested in connection with accusations he removed documents linked to the Larry Nassar sexual abuse case from the Karolyi Ranch gymnastics training facility in Texas, authorities said.
Young women abused by Larry Nassar called on Texas officials to investigate what USA Gymnastics coach Martha Karolyi knew about Nassar's abuse and when she knew it, they said during a press conference Thursday.
Legendary USA Gymnastics coaches Bela and Martha Karolyi said they did not know former team doctor Larry Nassar was abusing girls at their gymnastics facility and declined to take responsibility for his abuse.
If disgraced doctor Larry Nassar managed to secretly abuse young gymnasts in their parents' presence, a coach who ran the famed Karolyi Ranch training center has insisted she couldn't have known either.
When Olympic gold medalist Aly Raisman reported her abuse at the hands of Larry Nassar, she thought USA Gymnastics officials and the FBI would help.
Tucked away in the boondocks of southeast Texas hid the mecca of American women's gymnastics -- a training camp so revered and remote, years of abuse festered unabated, ex-gymnasts say.
