Olympic gymnast Simone Biles came forward as one of the many women abused by former USA Gymnastics and Michigan State doctor Larry Nassar. On Jan. 24, 2018, he was sentenced to 40 to 175 years in prison. In December 2018, Simone spoke to Robin Roberts on Good Morning America about her year of "ups and downs."
"I still go to therapy, and I'm on anxiety medicine now because I had a lot of ups and downs throughout the year in trying to figure out what was wrong," she said. "It's not easy, but the people surrounding me are some of the best, so it makes it a little easier."
At a competition in 2018, Simone wore a teal leotard in honor of fellow survivors. (A teal ribbon is the symbol for sexual assault awareness and prevention.) "I feel this year gave me a voice," she said on GMA. "I tried to find my voice this year and use that to the better potential in positive manners."
