Two-time Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman has sued the U.S. Olympic Committee and USA Gymnastics over her alleged sexual abuse by former Team USA gymnastics physician Larry Nassar, her lawyers announced Friday morning.

Nassar, the convicted child molester accused by more than 260 girls and women of sexual abuse, assaulted Raisman several times between 2010 and 2015, according to the lawsuit, including during the 2012 Summer Games in London, where Raisman won two gold medals and a bronze as a member of the team known as the “Fierce Five.” Raisman’s former teammates Simone Biles, Gabby Douglas and McKayla Maroney have also claimed abuse by Nassar, and Maroney has also sued the USOC and USA Gymnastics.

“It has become painfully clear that these organizations have no intention of properly addressing this problem,” Raisman said in a statement. “Without a solid understanding of how this happened, it is delusional to think sufficient changes can be implemented. Meanwhile, thousands of young athletes continue to train and compete every day in this same broken system.”
