Gymnasts Simone Biles, McKayla Maroney, Maggie Nichols & Aly Raisman Celebrate Their Friendship After Testifying In The Senate

Simone Biles holds hands with McKayla Maroney as they leave the Senate Judiciary hearing in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday afternoon (September 15).

The former Olympic gymnasts joined Aly Raisman, world champion Maggie Nichols, Kaylee Lorincz and more in testifying about the Inspector General’s report on the FBI handling of the Larry Nassar investigation of sexual abuse of Olympic gymnasts

Simone, McKayla, Aly and Maggie all recalled the abuse they sustained from Larry Nassar, the former US women’s national gymnastics team doctor, and called out the FBI in their lack of urgency when handling their cases.

“I believe without a doubt that the circumstances that led to my abuse and allowed it to continue are directly the result of the fact that the organizations created by congress to oversee and protect me as an athlete—USA Gymnastics and the United States Olympic and Paralympic Committee—failed to do their jobs,” Simone had said during her testimony. “Nassar is where he belongs, but those who enabled him deserve to be held accountable. If they are not, I am convinced that this will continue to happen to others across Olympic sports.”

Following their testimonies, the four athletes chose to cling to each other and celebrate their bond.

McKayla shared a few images of her with Simone, Aly and Maggie just after their testimony.

McKayla, Simone and Aly have all been open about the assaults they were subject to during their time on Team USA.

Larry Nassar was previously sentenced to 175 years for his crimes.
