"I would cringe at how uncomfortable it felt". "I hope they can heal, and I hope USA Gymnastics steps forward and helps them in any way possible".

"I will not rest until every last trace of your influence on this sport has been destroyed like the cancer it is", she said. "You took advantage of our passions and our dreams". "But you were a doctor and I assumed I was the problem for thinking badly of you".

"I thought that training for the Olympics would be the hardest thing I would ever had to do", Wieber said, while fighting back tears.
