Olympic gold medalist Aly Raisman said she was sexually abused by former USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar, according to her upcoming interview on CBS' "60 Minutes".

Now 23, Raisman told "60 Minutes" that she started seeing Nassar when she was 15. In the interview, Raisman said she didn't know why it took so long for allegations against Nassar to come forward. He pleaded guilty to child pornography charges but not guilty to charges of sexual assault.

Raisman is not the first gymnast to accuse Nassar of abuse.

According to reports in the Lebanese media, the airstrike targeted a factory in Homs. The Nov. 1 strike is the third in Syria attributed to Israel in recent weeks.

Raisman's allegations follow allegations from teammate McKayla Maroney, a two-time Olympic medalist who accused Nassar of sexually abusing her throughout her career.

"I was molested by Dr. Larry Nassar, the team doctor for the US Women's National Gymnastics Team, and Olympic team", Maroney wrote in the Twitter post under the #MeToo hashtag, which has remained a trending topic on social media after a number of women accused Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault in October.

Raisman continued after Jon Lapook of "60 Minutes" noted her anger. "USA Gymnastics is very sorry that any athlete has been harmed..." the statement said. USA Gymnastics hired Kerry Perry as its new president and CEO on Tuesday after president Steve Penny resigned in March after 12 years on the job. The organization says it recently adopted a new "safe sport policy" that requires "mandatory reporting" of suspicions of sexual abuse and also sets standards to "prevent inappropriate interaction" between athletes and adults.
