Twitter Reacts To Larry Nassar Sentencing

Larry Nassar

In the wake of ex-USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar's sentence of up to 175 years from Judge Rosemarie Aquilina on January 24 following the testimony of almost 160 accusers, Michigan State University president Lou Anna K. Simon has stepped down.

The gymnast insisted that Nassar had more victims who haven't yet spoken out and said that it was necessary to uncover any USAG staff or board members who may have "fostered" Nassar's actions.

Nassar was sentenced to up to 175 years in prison earlier this week. "We must take further action to ensure that it can not happen again".

SpaceX's Falcon Heavy launch is reportedly set for February 6th
The Falcon Heavy carries the largest payload amount since the Saturn V rocket, which carried out a 310,000 pounds into space. The company CEO tweeted yesterday: " Falcon Heavy hold-down firing this morning was good". "Launching in a week or so".

"While the USOC encourages USAG to think and act broadly on reforming its culture, we also believe that reform must start with an entirely new board".

In response, a USA Gymnastics statement read: "USA Gymnastics completely embraces the requirements outlined in the January 25, 2017 letter from the United States Olympic Committee and appreciates the opportunity to work with the USOC to accomplish change for the betterment of our organization, our athletes and our clubs".

"We are very sorry that any athlete has been hurt by the despicable crimes Larry Nassar committed", one statement read.

In addition to the resignations, Blackmun's email stated an interim board must be in place by February 28 and then in turn replaced within 12 months. If they are not, USA Gymnastics will face decertification and no longer be the sport's national governing body. A cached version of the website from Tuesday lists 18 directors, not including the three members of the board's executive leadership who had resigned the day before.

- At each of its meetings, the board also must "substantively discuss" how the federation is progressing in implementing 70 recommendations made by former federal prosecutor Deborah Daniels. Additionally, USA Gymnastics Board Of Directors' Chairman Paul Parilla, Vice Chairman Jay Binder, and Treasurer Bitsy Kelley all stepped from their positions too for the part they played in all of this.

"I'm not running away from anything", Hollis said, promising to cooperate with investigations into the matter. This was not an easy decision for my family and you should know, and you should not, you should not jump to any conclusions based upon our decision. "I knew that the farthest I could run from my abuser, and the people that let him prey on children for decades, was to choose the opposite of what that man, and his enablers, had become".
