John Traetta, Kerry Adderly, and Midknight Robin discuss the latest news regarding USA Gymnastics. Last Wednesday, Michigan State announced that it had settled with 332 survivors of Larry Nassar’s sexual abuse for $500 million. $425 million will be divided among the women and girls, with $75 million set aside for any future Nassar survivors who come forward. Rhonda Faehn, USA Gymnastics senior vice president for the women’s program, is no longer working for the Organization. Faehn is reported to be the first USA Gymnastics official to learn of allegations that longtime U.S. Olympic and USA Gymnastics team physician Larry Nassar had sexually abused U.S. national team members. A club coach first approached Faehn with concerns about Nassar in June 2015, 16 months before Nassar’s abuse first became public.
