A Senate subcommittee held a hearing with former USA Gymnastics President Steve Penny and former Michigan State University President Lou Anna Simon about sexual abuse of athletes during their respective tenures. Both were subpoenaed to testify regarding the sexual abuse of dozens of Olympic gymnasts who were under the care of former team doctor and now-convicted child molester, Larry Nassar. Dr. Nassar also abused athletes while employed by Michigan State University where he was a sports medicine physician.

Mr. Penny gave no opening statement and left the hearing after invoking the Fifth Amendment. Professor Simon and the former USA Women’s Gymnastics program director both testified. After the hearing adjourned, several victims spoke to reporters about their thoughts of the hearing. close
