"We are very sorry that any athlete has been hurt by the despicable crimes Larry Nassar committed", one statement read.

One of the 18 directors, Kevin Martinez, said on Thursday he had cut ties with the USA Gymnastics Federation, and the US Olympic Committee's (USOC) CEO, Scott Blackmun, joined the chorus calling for resignations.
