As we reported last week, the Olympian opened up about the sexual abuse she suffered at the hands of USA Gymnastics' longtime team physician, Larry Nassar.

After her initial interview, Raisman came to realize she herself was a victim, and tried to speak again with that agent.

Raisman spoke with FBI investigators after returning from Rio de Janeiro, where she served as captain for the USA national team at the 2016 Olympic Games.

"I am angry. I'm really upset", Raisman told "60 Minutes," per USA Today.

"I was just really innocent, I didn't really know, you know, you don't think that of someone, so I trusted him", Raisman said. I can't ... every time I look at them, every time I see them smiling, I just think - I just want to create change so that they never, ever have to go through this.

Raisman stated that she was sexually abused by the national team doctor, Larry Nassar, who worked with the USA women's national team and athletes at Michigan State University for over two decades.

More than 130 women and girls, many of them former athletes have filed civil lawsuits against Nassar.

In a statement to 60 MINUTES, USA Gymnastics said it has made major changes since the Nassar scandal broke. He was sacked by USA Gymnastics in the summer of 2015, but the federation waited five weeks before alerting the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Raisman is the latest gymnast to claim she was sexually abused by Nassar.

Olympic gold medal gymnast Aly Raisman says she does not want other girls to endure what she did.

"I was in denial", she tells LaPook on the broadcast. Raisman stated during the interview.

"It's important to speak up for something and it's right".

RAISMAN: I am angry. "From the moment that I realized that it happened to me, I wanted to talk about it". That's what bothers me.

"He would always bring me, you know, desserts or gifts", Raisman says. You know, you don't think that of someone. USA Gymnastics says it has adopted all 70.

Raisman, who would become the first American woman since Dominique Dawes to compete at three Olympic Games should she qualify for Tokyo, later said: 'All we've done is worked really hard. She was 15 at the time. "This is happening everywhere". USA Gymnastics now has the power to withhold membership from clubs that decline to report claims of abuse. He also faces charges related to the sexual abuse alleged by gymnasts he treated.

'What did USA Gymnastics do, and Larry Nassar do, to manipulate these girls so much that they are so afraid to speak up?' USA Gymnastics announced this week that Kerry Perry, formerly the vice president of business development at Learfield Communications, would start as CEO on December 1. Daniels found that the organization needed a "complete culture change" and made 70 recommendations as to how that should happen. He has already been charged with 22 counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct.

Raisman is by far the most elite athlete to go public with allegations of abuse against Nassar, who was sacked by USA Gymnastics in 2015 after almost three decades with the organization.

Howard echoed the statements made by Dantzscher, saying: 'It has become glaringly obvious that USA Gymnastics has not done almost enough to protect athletes from any form of abuse'. "We want to work with Aly and all interested athletes to keep athletes safe".
