A spokeswoman for USA Gymnastics said the organization’s board will comply with the U.S. Olympic Committee’s demand and resign, to a (wo)man, over the neglect to take sexual abuse allegations seriously, particularly those against former Olympics doctor, Larry Nassar.


Nassar received a 40 to 175-year prison sentence this week for molesting more than 100 girls in his capacity as a world-renowned physician.
