Everything about this report is completely awful.

On Thursday, the Indy Star released its findings from a nine-month long investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct against 368 female United States gymnasts. The lengthy report comes on the heels of an August scandal which reveal USA Gymnastics officials routinely ignored allegations of abuse for years.

Now the recent investigation has brought even more horrific claims to light, alleging that over the past 20 years, 368 gymnasts suffered sexual abuse at the hands of more than 100 coaches, gym owners, and other adults.

According to legal docs obtained by the publication, the victims were mostly girls, some of who were as young as six.

The allegations range from coaches covertly photographing 6-year-olds in the nude, a coach engaging in "almost daily sex" with a 14-year-old, and another coach who "slipped a finger inside girls' leotards".

As for why these incidences went largely unreported or noticed, sources explained how gyms feared molestation claims would hurt their businesses. Some officials even feared firing an accused coach would ruin their chances of reaching the championships.

Following the explosive report, USA Gymnastics released the following statement to the Indy Star:

So… Gabby Douglas is the Camila Cabello of the group? Got it.

In honor of the country currently being split when it comes to the upcoming election, outgoing President Barack Obama decided to try some splits of his own with some national heroes recently.

4/5 of the U.S. Women's Olympic Gymnastics Team stopped by the White House on Thursday to celebrate their gold medals with Barack and Michelle Obama — but they made sure to get some stretching time in as well, of course!

Simone Biles, Laurie Hernandez, Aly Raisman, Madison Kocian, and members of the U.S. Paralympic Team served as the very last group of Rio de Janeiro athletes to be invited to the capitol under the Obamas' presidency — which meant the Final Five just had to take over the oval office's official Instagram page, right?!

Unfortunately, Gabby's wisdom tooth surgery from earlier in the week prevented her from attending, but Simone more than made up for her absence by presenting POTUS with a signed surfboard from (almost) all the Rio athletes!

We can only assume Laurie's Dancing with the Stars competitor Ryan Lochte would have also been in attendance… if he weren't banned from the premises!
