 ByresInaction by Sexual Invasion: We Are Gold Medal Machines


We have only one task, that is to win the Olympic gold medal, and we have accomplished everything they asked us to do, even if we didnt want to. The problem is that they cant do a damn job and cant protect us. In fact, after an 18-month investigation into Nassers sexual assault, the US Congress found that neither the American Gymnastics Association nor the American Olympic Committee could really protect the team members from being assaulted, or even deliberately conceal the doctors behavior.

These organizations had the opportunity to stop Nasser, but did not take action, and Byers revealed that she had also been sexually assaulted by the team doctor. Now, although Nasser was sentenced to 40 to 125 years in prison, the injury to the injured team members did not end there. Every time I go to see a doctor, I get treatment. Its really sad, Byres said. Now Im 22 years old. At the end of the day, I have to be treated, which makes it difficult for me to get through. I think Ill get out of the shadows, but it takes some time. Even though Im strong, its still not easy. Before the World Championships, Byers will fight for the sixth consecutive championship of the womens all-around event in the United States. Although she is still the greatest gymnast on the planet, she can be said by Byers that she is trying her best to get out of the dilemma. I feel like every day reminding myself of what Ive experienced, what Im going through, and what else, How can I get out of trouble? Its our luck to have a platform for people to hear our voices, but its not an easy task to go back to the sport and the organizations that disappointed you.
