On Jan. 9, 2018, Maggie Nichols released a statement informing the world that she, too, had been sexually assaulted by former USA Gymnastics team physician Larry Nassar. She also let the world know that she was the one who had been identified only as “Athlete A” in the reports of Nassar’s actions, which he inflicted under the guise of medical treatment on more than 300 victims. She did it to let everyone know that he did not do this to Athlete A, he did it to Maggie Nichols. Maggie Nichols did this for all young girls who approach her for photos or autographs whenever she appears in public. She did it for the strangers who also were victims of abuse and feel ashamed, not empowered.

From the time she was 3, Maggie Nichols spent countless hours in the gym to shape herself into a world-class gymnast. Maggie missed time with friends and holidays with family to pursue that dream. But with all this training come injuries, Maggie knew about injuries as she had to deal with a lot of injuries throughout her career. But one injury brought her under the care of Dr. Larry Nassar. Listen as Maggie tells her story.
