>> America's fab five gymnasts brought home gold from the 2016 Rio games. But behind the scenes, former athletes were blasting the sports governing body, USA Gymnastics, for its slowness in responding to a slew of sexual abuse lawsuits.>> And the culture of money and medals, we found, had taken priority.
00:00:22
>> But Tuesday, the gymnastics organization was a no-show at a Senate hearing calling for more oversight and mandatory reporting of abuse claims to police. Dozens of gymnasts have filed lawsuits accusing the team's doctor, Larry Nassar, of molesting them and having child pornography. He's now in jail after being fired in 2015.

Jamie Dantzscher, a 2000 Olympic bronze medalist, was one of his victims.>> Dr. Nassar abused me at the USA National Training Center in Texas. He abused me in California at meets and all over the world. Many times, the abuse took place in my own room, in my own bed.
00:01:03
Worse, he abused me in my hotel room in Sydney at the Olympic Games.>> Others, like gold medalist Dominique Moceanu, lent their support.>> I believe the culture of abuse, however, undermines the sport's greatness and is simply un-American.>> Accusations that USA Gymnastics turned a blind eye to sexual assault forced long time president Steven Penny to resign two weeks ago.
