Olympic gold medallist Simone Biles joins over 130 athletes who have said they were sexually assaulted by the former US women gymnastics team doctor Larry Nassar.

Nassar pled guilty to seven counts of criminal sexual conduct in November and his sentencing began today. Accounts have been written by some of the women who have been assaulted. Whilst not many of them felt as though they could stand up in court and speak, the letters will count as testimony in the trial.

Biles shared her statement on social media with the caption “Feelings. #MeToo”

Since sharing her story Biles has received an outpouring of support with people commending her strength and wishing her well.
