USA Gymnastics has announced a plan to pay a $215m settlement to the group of athletes abused by former national team doctor Larry Nassar.

Nassar was sentenced to up to 300 years in jail in 2018 after more than 265 women accused him of sexual abuse.

Later in the year, USA Gymnastics filed for bankruptcy in order to be able to resolve claims made by athletes.

Athletes have now been asked to vote on whether to accept the settlement or pursue their own lawsuits.
