USA Gymnastics recognizes the courage displayed by Jordyn Wieber and others who have shared their experiences with abuse. We are very sorry that any athlete has been hurt by the horrific actions of Larry Nassar. USA Gymnastics first became aware of athlete concerns regarding Nassar in June 2015, which led USA Gymnastics to report Nassar to the FBI and dismiss him from further involvement with the organization. USA Gymnastics is committed to creating a culture that empowers and supports our athletes and focuses on our highest priority, which is the safety and well-being of our athletes. We hope everything we do going forward makes this very clear.

We need the member clubs, coaches, athletes, their parents, administrators and the entire gymnastics community to join with us to do everything possible in preventing abuse to honor all of our athletes, including the young men and women who are pursuing their gymnastics dreams today and those who have gone before.

USA Gymnastics will not comment on the complaint filed on behalf of Jordyn Wieber.
