AboutAt The Heart of Gold: Inside the USA Gymnastics Scandal
At The Heart of Gold: Inside the USA Gymnastics Scandalchronicles how for more than two decades Dr. Larry Nassar was the osteopathic physician for the U.S. Women’s Olympic gymnastics team and a physician at Michigan State University (MSU), while sexually abusing hundreds of female athletes. The documentary premiered at theTribeca Film Festivalfollowed by a May 3, 2019 home release onHBOplatforms.
Based on years of research by producers Dr. Steven Ungerleider and David Ulich, the documentary, directed by Erin Lee Carr, features testimonials from coaches, lawyers, journalists, Judge Rosemarie Aquilina, and most importantly the dozens of brave athlete survivors at the center of the scandal, that go beyond the sensational headlines. The film reveals a dangerous system that prioritizes winning over everything else, including protecting young female athletes. It exposes an environment in which young women spent their youth competing for victory on a world stage, juxtaposed against a culture where abuse was hidden, and lives were forever damaged.
For years, accusations and evidence grew against the doctor, as several young women came forward to their coaches, universities and parents. At Michigan State, mounting evidence suggested that reports of Nassar’s improper treatments, which sometimes occurred when parents were present, were dismissed by officials who chose to defend the popular doctor.
In 2016, after Rachael Denhollander went public with her story in theIndianapolis Star，the tide finally began to turn against Nassar, as more and more women filed lawsuits against him and the institutions that had shielded him for so long.
At his Jan. 2018 Ingham County sentencing, 88 survivors had been scheduled to make statements. By the end of that week, 156 women, all with a shared history of abuse, had bravely come forward. Trinea Gonczar, another survivor and a longtime family friend of Nassar, said to her abuser, “You hurt me, as I’ve had to realize I was abused for many years of my life…I will do everything for the rest of my life to make sure that the ‘you’s’ of this world don’t get to hurt another one of us.”
After a week of powerful testimonies, Judge Aquilina meted out a 175-year sentence, effectively imprisoning Nassar for life. Because so many survivors went public, some of the institutions and athletic organizations that protected Nassar, began to implement changes. In March 2018, MSU agreed to a $500 million settlement for athletes abused by Nassar. In Oct. 2018, Steve Penny, former president of USA Gymnastics, was arrested for tampering with evidence in the Nassar case. His case is still pending. Congress went on to pass legislation enforcing mandatory reporting of sexual abuse in amateur sports. One week after Nassar’s sentencing, the entire board of USA Gymnastics resigned. One month later, Scott Blackmun stepped down as the chief executive of the United States Olympic Committee, an organization that also moved to decertify USA Gymnastics as the sport’s governing body.
