More than 265 women came forward detailing Larry Nassar’s sexual abuse over the course of decades - including six Olympic medalists ????But now The New York Times reports court documents filed Wednesday in a California federal court ????show the United States Olympic Committee knew of Nassar’s sexual abuse more than two decades before the scandal broke ????According to the times, Kathy Scanlan - president of USA Gymnastics from 94 to 98 - said in a sworn statement that the committee discouraged her from investigating and disciplining professional members in this fashion ????Unsuccessful efforts to deal with sexual abuse cases reportedly continued under Scanlan’s successor Bob Colarossi.

According to the times’ report, Colarossi wrote in a letter as part of a separate case - ????that the Olympic committee was indifferent to the welfare of young children ????However efforts stopped after Steve Penny who stepped in after Colarossi left ????Penny is accused of waiting 5 weeks before contacting the FBI after receiving complaints about Nassar’s touching.

????Penny resigned last year and the times reports he was arrested last month for evidence tampering in a Texas investigation into Nassar ??Nassar was convicted almost a year ago and sentenced to up to 175 years in prison ??
