Aly Raisman, Sarah Klein and Tiffany Thomas Lopez accepted the award on behalf of their “army of survivors.” Each delivered a moving speech about the pain caused by 30 years of abuse by the disgraced Team USA and Michigan State doctor. They also spoke about and the courage of hundreds of women that finally brought justice.
Nassar received 2 life sentences for sexual assault crimes, and 60 years for a child porn case.
