US Gymnasts Testify As Senate Examines FBI’s Handling Of Larry Nassar Investigation Photo by Saul Loeb - Pool/Getty Images

You probably know that I am a big fan of watching the USA Olympic gymnastic team.

Last week stars like, Simone Biles, Aly Raisman, Maggie Nichols, and McKayla Maroney stood up for themselves and hundreds of others while testifying at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on the FBI’s handling of the Larry Nassar investigation.

If I am going to rave about them and support them while they are performing, I am also going to do the same while they are showing a bravery that many of us can’t even imagine. These women deserved better. I am so glad that they had it in them, not only to come forward when they did, but to also try to make a difference on how things are handled in the future.

Here’s a little more on their testimony:
