A gold-medal winning Olympian has confronted disgraced USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar at his sentencing to reveal he abused her, too.

Jordyn Wieber is the fourth member of the Fierce Five, the winning 2012 Summer Olympics squad, to accuse him.

She joins teammates Aly Raisman, Gabby Douglas and McKayla Maroney, who all said Nassar, 54, molested them.

More than 100 victims have come forward. Nassar admitted 10 criminal counts and could face life in prison.

In emotional testimony, 22-year-old Ms Wieber delivered her statement in court near Lansing, Michigan, on Friday.

"I thought that training for the Olympics would be the hardest thing that I would ever have to do," she said.

"But, in fact, the hardest thing I ever had to do is process that I am a victim of Larry Nassar."
