The sentencing of former USA gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar resumes on Monday.

The judge extended the sentencing so that more of Nassar's 140 victims can get the chance to deliver their impact statements, face-to-face, after they were sexually abused under the guise of medical treatment.

“I am here to tell you I will not rest until every last trace of your influence on this sport has been destroyed like the cancer it is,” said Aly Raisman, a gymnast from “Team USA.”

Team USA gymnast Aly Raisman summoned the courage to make a surprise appearance to confront the man who abused her, Larry Nassar.

"Larry, you do realize now that we, this group of women you so heartlessly abused over such a long period of time, are now a force and you are nothing," Raisman said.

Raisman then expressed addressed new head of USA gymnastics, Kerry Perry.

“Unfortunately, you've taken on an organization that I feel is rotting from the inside. We need an independent investigation of exactly what happened, what went wrong, and how it can be avoided for the future,” Raisman said.

Jordyn Wieber, another member of that team, came forward Friday to speak publicly for the first time.

“My parents trusted USA gymnastics and Larry Nassar to take care of me. And we were betrayed by both. And now the lack of accountability from USAG, USOC, and Michigan State have caused me and many other girls to remain shameful, confused, and disappointed,” Wieber said.

Nasser treated Olympians like Raisman and Wieber for USA gymnastics.

In addition, he worked for Michigan State University, where he saw softball player Tiffany Thomas Lopez, one of four athletes we spoke with who are among the victims addressing the court.

After being abused by Nassar from 1999 to 2001, Thomas Lopez she says she spoke with a supervising trainer.

She decided to drop it, and soon left softball because of her injuries.
