BOSTON (AP) — Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman says she's barely been able to work out since going public with allegations of sexual abuse at the hands of a former sports doctor.

The six-time Olympic medalist tells The Improper Bostonian magazine that she's still regrouping after confronting former USA Gymnastics team doctor Larry Nassar.

The magazine quotes the 24-year-old native of Needham, Massachusetts, as saying she's hardly worked out in the past few months. She says she's constantly reliving her abuse.

Raisman and hundreds of other women and girls say they were sexually assaulted by Nassar.

Nassar pleaded guilty to molesting women and girls under the guise that he was treating them for injuries. He is serving sentences that will likely keep him in prison for life.
