American gymnast Simone Biles testified before the United States Senate about the abuse she suffered at the hands of her former team doctor, Larry Nassar.

Her teammates also appeared Aly Raisman and McKayla Maroney and the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Christopher Wray.

The testimony of Biles and the other athletes has been shocking.

The Senate committee that heard them investigates possible flaws and negligence in the FBI investigation of Nassar, later sentenced to life in prison for sexual abuse.
