She said the scars of this horrific abuse continue and the impact will never be over michaela. Maroni told a story about sitting on her bedroom floor back in twenty fifteen and talking to the fbi over the phone and telling them all of the details of everything that had happened to her and then told the f. b. i. About tokyo the day he gave me a sleeping pill for the plane. Ride to then work on me. Later that night that evening i was naked completely alone with him on top of me molesting me for hours. I began crying at the memory over the phone. And there was just dead silence. I was so shocked at the agents silence and disregard for my trauma. After that minute of silence he asked is that all advocates for the young women. Say as many as one hundred twenty athletes may have been abused by nasser. they says l. erased men nassir found more than one hundred new victims to molest serving innocent children up to a pedophile on a silver platter. All we needed was one adult to do the right thing. I don't know if you guys saw this part of her testimony but she told a story about sitting with an fbi agent and him trying to convince her that everything that had happened. Wasn't that bad.

What lawmakers heard yesterday was the continued frustration of survivors. Who felt that their allegations against larry nassar had not been taken seriously enough. They had been calling for change in calling for accountability for the failures of usa gymnastics of the us olympic and paralympic committee and of the fbi former olympic gymnast michaela maroney in her testimony directly. Blame the fbi for not acting fast enough to stop by larry nassar. Here's her testimony. What is the point of reporting abuse if our own.

Two golds, two silvers, and she did a postgame post swim interview. Where she told us that she is not done yet. That's not her Last swim, she says. She's going to go to 2024. Then maybe 2028. Which is just absolutely miraculous. And why wouldn't you at this point when she absolutely dominated in the 800 m relay, like I mean, this is certainly not the last race that we're going to see her in. But getting ready for Paris in 2024. I'm very excited to see what Katie Ledecky can can bring to the pool, and she's been phenomenal Storyline her Caleb Dressel Dressler, like You know, Olympic Swimming has been such a fun event. I think because The let down in a lot of sense, with Simone Biles and and the stuff that she's dealing with with in in what that's done to the overall landscape of women's gymnastics, like swimming is very much been, like, all right, We're right here like we're going to take the viewers for that, and we are going to become like what the center stage event is, at least for the time being before track and field starts and all of that, But Shout out to Katie Ledecky. I mean, she's been an absolute monster. And I'm thrilled that she thinks that she's planning at least to go for sure to 2024 in Paris and then maybe consider 2028. I mean, she will certainly be quite a bit older at that point, And as we know, age plays a big factor and what you can do in the pool and up till a certain point, But I wanted to get into Simone

Customers indoors is first and foremost about protecting his staff called forth to prevent fourth with kovic spreading fast again in alberta. The province is hurtling toward fourth. Wait unless vaccine holdout. Step up to get their shots. These are the songs that never end. A norwegian company is asking the music world which recordings should go in a new doomsday music. Vault scoop i get ask questions later. A competitor in a biannual cannonball run from one coast to the other describes the appealing and appalling aspects of spending ten days on scooter and screaming themselves horse. Two teams of scientists have burr under their saddles because they disagree on whether horses can recognize themselves in mirrors. As it happens the wednesday edition. Radio that wonders. If a gift horse looks itself in the mouth she was supposed to come home. A two time olympic champion. Instead simone biles become a champion for athletes mental health. The american gymnast is widely considered the greatest of all time in her sport. But just one event into this week's team competition in tokyo. She announced she'd be taking a time out a now. Ms biles has confirmed. She won't be competing in tomorrow's individual all around competition either. Her decision shocked gymnastics world. But it's a decision. A lot of the sports stars could relate to including former british olympic. Gymnast cloudy fraga penny. We reached ms fraga. Penny in brecon beacons wales. How do you. You've actually competed again. Simone biles what does it take for an athlete at that top level to say i'm out She's just school amazing personality. Amazing strength And i think it shocked to not people To be on this competing with her being an athlete myself you you have to take on so much. And she's got way more pressure than all of us have put together because a lotta people expect her to get gold medals and for it to be easy but it just proves that she is human and it's really hard to hi. I'm telling you right. And i wanna talk also about the real and dangerous impact of what those nerves can mean when it comes to competing and performing but let me take that moment where she did that volt where she kind of wobbled on the landing. Can you walk us through what you saw when you watch that to me. I just thought like she got kind of lost in the air I didn't think she was as comfortable going in what she normally is to me. What she met her doing that. It was a massive shock. But then i was like she could hurt herself. It is scary for your body. And also it's really hard on your head wise because then you head filled all confused on where you being on the twisting turns everything can it can be really really hard to get out place right. Let's talk a little bit more about that. Because she withdrew after that that vault and she later deceit said she was having a bit of the twisties. I love for you to explain a little bit what that means and just how dangerous it can be because as you say if you pull out of a move You know a mistake can cost you more than just points. Yeah so for her. Saying about the twisties is when as you get older you start to learn more and more twists. You go from half twist you can go to forest quadruple and you sometimes get the catch when it comes to twist and you get confused now. She did it when she had her arm up and she was in the middle of a competition so dangerous. Because if you pull out halfway through and you know you could be in any direction. And you don't know with us gymnast. We know is that to go in where about salons. Were very good. At everything and oversee simone is even better all of that so for her to stop halfway through it messed everything up including obviously it was hard for her mental health as well and she says okay after that because it takes on the mind and body. You've had some pretty dramatic experiences with this yourself. Can you tell us a little bit about so. I was going for one of my olympic trials. i get one re successfully the week before and then we had another one and during the weeks i was feeling very stress I was doing quite well. But then when i go onto the flow. I just felt really tired. And drains Going into my last tomboy and it was quite slow and trade. So i said to myself i'll just do a single missile but then when i was halfway through the single film so i runs. Meet went for another summer so which was crazy. I landed on my head in that. And i passed out on the floor for a few seconds and then next thing. I know i'm on a stretcher to be rushed to the hospital And then the. I wasn't allowed to like move because they have been paralyzed So that was really scary. And then luckily i just got really bad concussion but taking me five months to ropley come back and be like at my good south head wise and even in those five months. It took me a while. Because i'd be like i'm fine. I went to go into my last. Try all the week before I started getting really dizzy before my tumbles. And i couldn't push anymore because he's getting dangerous and not when i said to myself. Okay i'll stop so for simone to realize that straight away and just say look hung and i'm just gonna stop really if my house to her. She's just such an inspiration. Yeah i mean that that moment of second guessing yourself or making a mistake or a decision can be career ending or even life ending Soon did talk to reporters about her decision. Let's play a little bit of that. Today has been really chestful. We had to work out this morning. It went okay and then just at five and a half hour. Wait or something. I was just like shaking. Could barely nap. I've just never felt like this going into a competition before. And i tried to go out and have fun and warm in the back a little bit better but then once i came out here i was like no mental is not there so i just need to let the girls do it and focus on myself. How significant is it to hear. Someone like simone biles who you know is described as the goat. Greatest of all time has all of these olympic achievements. There's nothing she can't do and for her to step back and say no. I have to prioritize my mental health. How significant is it to hear that on this stage. Gosh it's just like you. You know of athletes turn around Gymnasts that will say no. I'm just gonna go for it but for her. She's not selfish person and in her interview. She said these girls that she trained with has worked so hard. I wanna close them a medal. And i her just step. Aside is amazing. Because i reckon should feel quite sad that she wasn't a part of and she didn't she didn't do the competition with them and have the atmosphere and it's just simone not i think she's inspired a lot people and she's also opened.

Gymnast simone biles byles. Who was twenty years old at the time posted on her twitter account that she had been assaulted by nasser under the guise medical treatment. Our colleague louise radnofsky covers gymnastics. She said that this had happened wall. She'd been training as part of the us national team. And she included usa gymnastics for sports governing body among those who should bear blame and she said very strongly that this behavior is completely unacceptable disgusting abusive and so she wrote in her post. I will not should not carry the guilt. The belongs larry nassar usa g and others now. The world's attention is turned to. Tokyo is the first olympics. Since the nassar scandal broke and simone biles finds herself in a unique position. She's the last self identified nassar survivor remaining on team usa. When i spoke to smiles recently she made clear that from her perspective continuing to compete and put herself out. There meant that a spotlight would remain on the scandal that it couldn't be swept under the rug. And perhaps that this part of that some of the answers that she and the other gymnasts still want want so wrong might eventually come to this olympics. Simone biles won't just be usa gymnastics best. Hope she'll also be it's loudest critic welcome to the journal our show about money business and power. I'm ryan is friday. July twenty third.

"Proper stuff then learn things from scratch. A lot of people in this on the street might think that street. Gymnast guys like a godsend who can do all these flips but after imagine would actually be harder to deal with him then. A total new. It's it's it's terrible. It would depend on what that gymnast wants to do. That gymnasts wants to probably go to. The olympic someday is going to take at least a year or two to unlearn what he's learned on the playground and not just dealing with him. Because you know you can kinda convince children to start from the beginning. It's the parents who did their job is already ready to go to the olympics. They're going to be the ones like all know. My baby's not a beginner wisely. Beginners classes I'm kind of dealing with it right now. And this is a success story. Because i've been working with this kid probably. I'm about one fifteen to sixteen months. And i've seen a very very good turnaround but when i first saw him i had him off i said oh no i say this cable. Never be jimbo. He can do a flip. And i mean if he wants to challenge some of the kids on the playground like to jets. That will be good. But the do competitive gymnastics..

"Went to sleep. You know the next day. I woke up. Like gymnastics gymnastics gymnastics Nobody else in. My family liked to watch gymnastics. No one knew what it was and it just came out of nowhere. It just never went away And i believe that. That's something that i share with the boys in the gym. And we have that connection. So i know that the other thing about gymnastics and i wanted to go ahead and jump in and ask technically was his question around masculinity gymnastics and the perception that people have of gymnastics. Before you go into that question. I wanna make this statement. I've never heard anyone. Questioned the masculinity of men or boys gymnastics and. I've never met anyone who has heard anyone questioned the masculinity of poisoned gymnasts. I have heard or met people who've seen someone posted online. Oh a black man. Didn't think gymnastics gay black men with dominate gymnastic. But no one has ever actually heard anyone say that and so this conversation makes me upset because what happens is you have people who go based off someone who's hurt something someone who may have says something but they don't know who those this young man online who is talking about. Oh every growing up. Everyone thought gymnastics was game. If they wouldn't. I would have wanted to do gymnastics. I asked him. I said who said gymnastics was game. He was like oh every. But i said no. Give me a name. tell me your person. He was like no one. No one actually ever said it. But you know i said no. I don't know i said tell me. And he couldn't say anything i said. Why are you online spreading lies. So now i'm upset and so so before we get to this. This really upset me because you will never find anyone who says that gymnastics is girly gymnasts unmanly but for some reason. That's the first thing people want to go to. That's the narrative that started online it did not exist in real life. But but that's says. That's exactly what i was was going to say because i'm so glad that he will. It took away the three quarters of questions but it was like i don't wanna talk about this is not important is not real. It's something that's made up. I think he. I think the question was about because you answer it. He wanted to talk about. I guess that perception online or what people are saying and you kind of answered it already. So i just wanna clarify what i was gonna ask. I wasn't buying into it what i was saying. You're saying i want to ask you if you experience people who have that myth and where do you think the myth comes from. Because i was thinking saying the same that we've never seen this thing ever held anywhere every every hood got every hood got a tumbling team my brother. Og bloods gang. Member used to do back flips off the house. My brother used to do crazy stuff. We look you know. I'm thirty nine hundred zero if you saw somebody able to do that..

"I always tell people that gymnastics is very similar to the nba and the wnba whereas you have men who watch basketball. They love basketball. They'd probably can tell you what. Wnba player is however the wnba comes on tv. They have games. They have merchandise. They have shoes. that just doesn't interest. That may not interest that person So gymnastics is the same way like me. I can tell you who all the mill. Jim is our men's gymnastics comes on tv. Just women's gymnastics They do commercials just like the women. I believe that. I'm so i believe is really has to do with how gymnastics is marketed on and comes from the national headquarters usa gymnastics. They wanted gymnastics to really be this wholesome on this this upper middleclass fort where you just seem like these little pixie white girls Running around the blips of a purposely had these deals where only women's gymnastics would be shown for. If they were shown with men's gymnastics women's gymnastics will be more prevalent and so because of that and the the late eighties and nineties. The media gravitated to women gymnasts more and because the media gravitated to them more. The fans gravitated to women gymnastics more solid result of a marketing ploy. Oh yes so. Usa gymnastics was a very small organization and sixty seventies and eighties. So what happened. Was they hired a marketing guru to be their their presidency. Ceo say his name. Because he's very litigious and he kind of listened to like things like this the see if anyone says anything negative about him but he decided that he wanted gymnastics to be this very wholesome sport and he had all of. These deals. Particularly with nbc. And you would just be watching your nbc news and they would run a human interest. Piece called a fluff about a gymnast. You didn't realize that there was no reason for them to be doing. This story on gymnastics. But because they had this deal because he had these deals with these networks and these news stations to market gymnastics gymnastics took on a certain look. It's going to certain feel. And that's what has brought women's gymnastics to the forefront. Now even more so than men's gymnastics but even with that. I believe that the men themselves are to blame for their lack of popularity. This is what i was saying earlier. There are so many other things. I would love to get into one of the reasons why men's gymnastics is not as popular as women's gymnastics because the male gymnasts interact with their fans Just like simone. Biles a superstar. Men's gymnastics has a superstar. Just like Women's gymnastics has had all of these dreams. Men's gymnastics hazardous. Will they are. They are not as public. They're not as vocal they. They don't want they want to be famous but they don't wanna do things needed to be famous. I think that i can say that. Better than someone looking at another sport. Because gymnasts such a small sport. And i actually know many of them like i know the professional athletes in my organization. I think that a lot of the male gymnasts are waiting on gymnastics to make them a star versus going out and becoming stars that makes sense and so Whenever there's an issue. I always say that there..

"Membership Before they even saw competition and so that's different when you can put them in little league baseball football or basketball and they have practice on saturday morning and they have a game on saturday afternoon and so those are the reasons why i feel black. People don't gravitate towards gymnastics. I mean it's hard it's difficult it's boring. You have to love gymnastics to do so so the expense. The expense you don't think is is part of. It does not nine expense issue as far as getting the coaching. Well not for me because my gym is reduced I believe will. I knew i'm the cheapest gym in our area and most of our boys are on. Scholarship scholarships were provided by the people on social media for the last recessions. And so come into my gym. Be expensive isn't the issue. I believe that the expense may have been an issue for some parents in the past. But what i've learned people will pay for what they want to pay for. There are some people who want their child to try sport. They want them to try this out. Oh i would let my child try this if it wasn't that expensive. I hear this a lot. That doesn't necessarily mean that. They wanted their child to do gymnastics. I have people who come and there are. We just want to try this for session. We which is fine is nothing wrong with that. But i hate the story that's told on and i never got a chance to try gymnastics. It wasn't that expensive. My kid would try gymnastics when these from families who have no actual interest in their kids doing gymnastics. I i have mixed emotions on black people who say who say about Gymnastics wasn't so expensive or if there wasn't access and one of the reasons is just like most county rec centers have a basketball goal war. They have a football field. Most of those reds have a gym or a bonus room and anybody can write a program for gymnastics program at the rec center. And once you write that programming this approve. Their rec center. Has the use. His budget to buy the gymnastics equipment. Or you can do a request for the phones and i mean most basketball teams most baseball teams football teams in any other league. Little league teams. Those coaches are volunteer. They don't get paid. Someone started that by writing up a program grant or a request for their local rec center. And the program just keeps going every year with either the same coaches or new coaches. And i tell all the time. Hey there's no gymnastics program on my area. Say call call your county rec center. You could actually do a proposal for gymnastics program and no one's ever serious about it but it's a narrative you know it gets a lot of retweets online people like it and they share it. It's is good that for some reason. Men's gymnastics gives a lot of of of of comments in respect from black people online but oculus lip service. A lot of the people really don't believe the things they say but he gets them interaction especially where gymnastics is from the same thing that you said about..

"I wanted to know what are the actual reasons as a way to help. Dispel the midst because for example. I know one thing is. It's not easy to find a gym or a coach or things that you can afford. It's not like on with basketball when i was growing up. If you could get a hoop and a ball you're often running but you know with the local. Most local parks had a hoop and i would like the narrative to get out about. What are the real reasons why you know to dispel because i feel like everybody if they could if someone could teach them how to do gymnastics they would love to learn how to do gymnastics. And and that's what i would like to talk about not the midst. But what are the real things that might keep a blackboard. Who's interested in doing gymnastics from getting a chance to say about people thinking that Gymnastics not masculine or people starting that narrative and our community anything that a man does. That's different from what the i guess. The community mainstream man does escape. The mainstream man eats sausage for breakfast and another man coverage. Someone's going to say forages gave if the mainstream man wears light monochrome clothing and another man wears peach in the black community. They're gonna say oh peaches gay so anything different or anything. That's not the norm is labeled as gay and so no matter what you do no matter what a black man does. That's different than what a larger group or subgroup of black people. Doing if he's if he does is going to be called gay. That doesn't necessarily mean that black people are calling it homosexual but the label gay is just what black people have given to things. That are different and i mean i didn't start it and i don't know who did but that's if it's different escape. That doesn't necessarily their meat. They're calling someone homosexual but that's our label for different things now to get into the question of. What are the reason so. I've been doing this on almost in about three months. It'll be two years. And what i will say is Gymnastics is a performance for and black people the worldwide not just american. We do not get involved in performance. Sports and the reason is is because there is a very low competitive aspect for performance force. Black people love to be loud. Black people love to cheer black people. Love to talk trash. There is none of that in gymnastics. You have to go to a gym severe during the competition for four hours and be quiet sitting down and being quiet for four hours is just not in our cultural dna makeup..

It's really easy. What Rebecca saying here is that they're really two kinds of gymnastics in this country, the elite kind the kind that goes to the Olympics in wins metals, and this kind college gymnastics, but I'm gonna call it the fun kind. Everybody in gymnastics can do the splits. Everybody can do this puts splits. You learn the splits when you're five years and the floor on gymnastics Matt actually has like sixteen inches of math and springs. And so it's like almost like a trampoline. But then there are things that people really liked about this routine that are completely common to the entire NCWA which is the teammates during the choreography in the background. And everybody freaking out at the end when they did a good job and the smiling. And the fact that everybody looks like they have every new meal all those things are NC double a standard. Okay. Can we talk about? How weird it is though that like you're like smiling is Nancy AA. And like looking like they've eaten is unique to NC double A. That's a little bit of an exaggeration.
