Former elite gymnast files lawsuit against Larry Nassar, the Karoylis, AOGC, and USAG for abuse


  • A former Olympic gymnast filed a lawsuit against Larry Nassar and USAG in September

  • Since the first lawsuit, over 30 gymnasts have come out against Nassar, citing abuse from 1996-2014

  • The latest gymnast to come out against Larry Nassar has not only sued Nassar, but also the Karoylis and her own personal coaches, Galina Marinova and Artur Akopyan of All Olympia Gymnastics Center (AOGC)

  • Marta and Bela Karoyli were accused of scratching gymnasts until they bled, depriving gymnasts off food and water, encouraging parents to hit their children, and yelling obscenities

  • Larry Nassar took advantage of the Karoylis' abuse by sneaking gymnasts food and water and acting as their friend and advocate, but then started grooming the gymnasts and sexually abusing them

  • At the Karoyli Ranch, Larry Nassar was allowed to be in gymnasts living quarters by himself

  • The abuse the gymnast suffered has led to panic attacks, eating disorders, and depression

  • USAG and its president, Steve Penny, along with former president, Robert Colarossi, were also sued for covering up abuse and failing to report multiple instances of abuse to the authorities

USAG, Larry Nassar, and the Karoylis are all trash. The Karoylis have been abusing gymnasts since the 70s in Romania. Larry Nassar has been abusing gymnasts since the 80s/90s but USAG kept him as the team doctor until 2014/2015. USAG has failed to report so many coaches accused of abusing young male and female gymnasts.
