McKayla Maroney bravely opens up.

McKayla Maroney is opening up about years of sexual abuse to shed light on an issue that isn't specific to Hollywood.

Taking part in the #MeToo social media movement on Wednesday, the Olympic gold medalist described being molested by Dr. Larry Nassar, a longtime doctor on the USA Gymnastics team, starting at the age of 13.

Writing on Twitter, the 21-year-old alleged it occurred even before the 2012 London Olympics:

"Dr. Nassar told me that I was receiving 'medically necessary treatment that he had been performing on patients for over 30 years.' It started when I was 13 years old, at one of my first National Team training camps, in Texas, and it didn't end until I left the sport. It seemed whenever and wherever this man could find the chance, I was 'treated.' It happened in London before my team and I won the gold medal, and it happened before I won my silver."

The gymnast continued to describe one particularly frightening incident:

Disgusting! Former USA Gymnastics Doctor Accused Of Groping & Fondling Underage Olympic Gymnasts

What a horrible situation.

According to People Magazine, longtime USA gymnastics doctor Dr. Larry Nassar sexually assaulted two girls on the USA Olympics team.

Per the report, Larry allegedly fondled an underage girl listed as "Jane Doe" during physical therapy sessions. The revelation comes on the heels of Nassar's firing just last year.

In addition to Jane Doe's claims, gold medal winner Rachael Denhollander claims the sick doc penetrated her with gloveless fingers in addition to groping her breasts when she was just 15-years-old. The brave girl made the admission to authorities at the University of Michigan (where he's a faculty member) last month.

What's especially upsetting is, the 53-year-old worked for the team for a whopping twenty-nine years. It's sickening to think of all the underage girls he could have harmed!

To make matters even WORSE, the lawsuit claims the USA Gymnastics organization actively tried to cover up the crimes while also doing nothing to address the gross situation.

We'll keep you updated as this case progresses.
