Episode 1063: The Biggest Sex Abuse Scandal In Sports History, Delaney On O’Neill, IRFU On Drugs Policy, Sanchez To Man United
The biggest sex abuse scandal in the history of organised sport is unfurling at the moment, as US Gymnastics struggles to come to terms with a doctor, Larry Nassar, in their care pleading guilty to 10 counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct with victims as young as 6 years old, having been accused by over 140 women.

We speak to Juliet Macur of the New York Times about the full horror uncovered in this story, the victim impact statements currently being made in court, and Simone Biles’ revelation earlier this week that she was a victim of Nassar, but that she refuses to feel the guilt that is his, and US Gymnastics’, to bear.
Should U.S. gymnasts like Olympic champion @Simone_Biles have to return to the remote Texas training center where Dr. Larry Nassar molested them? Let’s hear from you in the comments section. https://t.co/wZ3Yi62CjG
