A message to USA Gymnastics members and community from the USA Gymnastics Board of Directors
posted on 12/10/2018

To our USA Gymnastics membership and community:

Today, Ropes & Gray, the independent investigating body examining the decades-long abuse by Larry Nassar, released its report based on its investigation.

We are indebted to the brave women who came forward and have made our sport safer by speaking out against the horrific acts of Larry Nassar. USA Gymnastics is one of the organizations that let them down, and we are working to regain their trust and that of the entire gymnastics community.

Throughout the investigation, USA Gymnastics fully cooperated with Ropes & Gray. Once we comprehensively review and understand the findings of the Ropes & Gray report, we will provide an update to all members. USA Gymnastics and the gymnastics community have made meaningful changes to help ensure athlete safety and well-being, and we may suggest more changes depending on the learnings from the report.

The one thing that has been clear throughout the process is the shared commitment of our members to foster a safe, positive and encouraging environment where young people can learn gymnastics and life skills to compete and pursue their dreams.

Thank you again for your commitment and support.

USA Gymnastics Board of Directors
