Simone Biles was among the gymnasts who testified Wednesday at a Senate hearing regarding the FBI’s handling of the investigation into former USA Gymnastics team doctor Larry Nassar.

MSNBC tweeted video of Biles providing an emotional opening statement on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C.:


“To be clear, I blame Larry Nassar and I also blame an entire system that enabled and perpetrated his abuse,” Simone Biles gives her opening statement at a Senate hearing on the FBI’s handling of the Larry Nassar investigation. <a href=””></a>

The 58-year-old Nassar was sentenced to between 40 and 175 years in prison in 2018 after pleading guilty to seven counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct with children under the age of 16.

Nassar had already been serving a 60-year prison sentence after being convicted on child pornography charges.

Several high-profile Team USA gymnasts, including Biles, McKayla Maroney, Aly Raisman, Gabby Douglas, Jordyn Wieber and Kyla Ross said Nassar sexually assaulted them while he was the USA Gymnastics national medical coordinator from 1996 to 2014.
