“I believe competitive gymnastics and other elite sports break children”: A Case-Study of Systemic Abuse in Sports Perpetrated by Larry Nassar
CHILD USA formed the Game Over Commission in 2018 to launch the only independent investigation by leading experts to study the Larry Nassar abuse case. The nationally recognized experts on the Commission contributed their time and expertise pro bono to serve the public interest in understanding how Nassar could harm so many girls and women and how so many institutions could let them down.
