Olympian Simone Biles on Nassar: 'It feels like he took a part of me'
Simon Biles was on NBC's TODAY Show on Wednesday to speak out about former sports physician Larry Nassar.
The Olympic gymnast said she initially was in denial and told her parents Nassar did not abuse her. However, she broke down when she realized she, too, had been sexually abused by Nassar during what were supposed to be medical treatments.
"It feels like he took a part of me that I can't get back," Biles said.
