American superstar gymnast Aly Raisman claimed in an interview with “60 Minutes” that she was abused by team doctor Larry Nassar.

In a preview clip released by CBS News, Raisman said she is “angry” about what happened and about the culture of USA Gymnastics.

“I am angry. I’m really upset, because it’s been — I care a lot,” Raisman told “60 Minutes.” “You know, when I see these young girls that come up to me and they ask for pictures or autographs, whatever it is, I just — I can’t — every time I look at them, every time I see them smiling, I just think, I just want to create change so that they never, ever have to go through this.”

Raisman’s gymnastics teammate McKayla Maroney also recently came forward with allegations against Nassar.

The team doctor was convicted on charges of child pornography, and he’s still facing more charges for alleged sexual misconduct with multiple athletes.

You can watch the full interview on “60 Minutes” Sunday night at 7 p.m. EST.
