Nassar, a longtime USA women's gymnastics team physician who has been accused of sexually abusing more than 140 women and girls under the guise of medical treatment, is awaiting sentencing after pleading guilty to seven counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct in a MI court a year ago.
In November, the former sports doctor pleaded guilty and was charged with molesting seven girls under the guise of treatment at his home and clinic at Michigan State University.
"Most of you know me as a happy, giggly, and energetic girl".
In a statement to "60 Minutes", USA Gymnastics say they adopted a new "safe sport policy" that requires "mandatory reporting" of suspicions of sexual abuse. Scores of women say they were abused by a respected man and then pressured into silence by powerful institutions. "I will continually return to the same training facility where I was abused", she wrote.
"They grow into strong women that. destroy your world".
Describing Nassar's behaviour as "unacceptable, disgusting, and abusive", Ms Biles continued: "It is not normal to receive any type of treatment from a trusted team physician and refer to it horrifyingly as the "special" treatment".
The Michigan attorney general's office is seeking at least 40 years in prison for the 54-year-old Nassar. The maximum represents a year for each of the 125 girls and women who filed reports of abuse with campus police.
