Two more Olympic gymnasts, Madison Kocian and Kyla Ross, revealed that they too were abused by former Team USA doctor Larry Nassar.
Several months since Nassar was convicted on federal child pornography and state sexual abuse charges, the two gold medal winners realized their voices needed to be heard as an example that there’s no timetable on unearthing the trauma of sexual abuse.
“Everyone copes in their own way,” Ross, a member of the “Fierce Five” group that won the 2012 Olympic gold medal, told the Associated Press on Thursday. “It doesn’t matter how old you are and what happens to you. I’ve come to the point in my life (where) I want to share my story and move on.”
"Still to this day I haven't heard anything. Even after Larry Nassar resigned and was asked to leave, I haven't heard anything from them." — @MadisonKocian pic.twitter.com/wL3iUjj9D4

Now every member of 2012’s “Fierce Five”, Ross, Wieber, Aly Raisman, Gabby Douglas and McKayla Maroney, has gone public claiming abuse at the hands of Nassar. All but one member 2016’s “Final Five” group has come forward.
There’s a special place in hell reserved for Nassar.
