Netflix 's documentary Athlete A has sickened viewers as it explained how gymnastics coach Larry Nassar abused more than 250 young women.
Father-of-three Larry, 56, was the USA Gymnastics team doctor and physician at Michigan State University.
From 1996-2014, he was the national medical coordinator for USA Gymnastics, where he would medically examine young girls at training camps where their parents were not allowed, and was able to abuse them.
He also reportedly sexually abused gymnasts at Michigan State University where he was the team physician.
In 1997, a concerned parent told coach John Geddert they suspected Larry of abuse, but John did not report this to the police.
And in 2000, another student reported Larry for his conduct, but once again nothing was done, and he began sexually abusing a 15-year-old gymnast named Rachael Denhollander that same year, when she sought his help for her back pain.
In 2014, Amanda Thomashow told the director of MSU Sports Medicine Clinic Dr Jeff Kovan that Larry sexually abused her while examining her hip injury - but the university cleared him and did not pass on this information to prosecutors until the next year.
In 2017, the disgraced coach plead guilty to child pornography charges, and in 2018 he plead guilty to seven counts of sexual assault of minors, leading to sentences of 60 years and 175 years respectively.
In 2016-2017, several more gymnasts began to come out and sued him for assaulting them, and he was charged with criminal sexual conduct against a child, as well as three other charges about a 1998 incident.
He was also charged with possessing child porn, and in January 2017 another women said she actually complained about Larry in the 1990s, but she was not listened to.
Shortly afterwards, Larry stood trial on sex abuse charges with 22 additional counts of criminal sexual conduct, but more and more defendants continued to be added, coming out and sharing their stories of abuse, with Maggie Nichols claiming Larry groomed her on Facebook.
MSU investigated Larry and found he assaulted a teen gymnast during treatments for back pain in 2000.
In April 2017, Larry’s licence was revoked for three years and he was forced to pay a $100,000 fine, and he plead guilty to charges of soliciting images of child sex abuse in July.
Olympic medalists revealed they had been abused by Larry, some from the age of 13, including McKayla Maroney, Aly Raisman, Simone Biles, and Gaby Douglas.
The vile is doctor serving his sentence in a Florida prison, where he was transferred because he was assaulted by another prisoner in his first prison in Arizona.
During his sentencing, Judge Rosemarie Aquilina said that there were likely many of additional victims who had not come forward, and made it clear that Larry will never be free again.
Randall Margrave, the father of three daughters who were abused by Larry, lunged at him in court as he tried to attack him to avenge his daughters, but was stopped by bailifs.
He had asked the judge: “I would ask you as part of the sentencing to grant me five minutes in a locked room with this demon,” but she declined.
The shocking abuse and the way the victims were systematically failed has sickened viewers all over the world, with one tweeting: " #AthleteA on Netflix is horrifying, disgusting, and so necessary to watch. my heart breaks for every single survivor. had ONE person done their job to protect those girls 500+ could have been saved."
Another wrote: "Just finished #AthleteA Man, I had so many emotions watching this. The top being anger, sadness and then more anger. @USAGym you needed to do better for these athletes! I hope you’ve learned your lesson. Put these girls above EVERYTHING because without them you are NOTHING!".
"Just watched #AthleteA Don't think it got enough media coverage in the UK. 'Great' example of what happens when women & girls are not listened to and when powerful men look out for each other. But also of the change that results from women speaking up and out together" wrote a third.
