Larry Nassar's Sexual Abuse Survivors Will Receive The Arthur Ashe Courage Award

Including Olympic gold medallist Aly Raisman.

After Olympic champion Aly Raisman delivered a powerful statement during the trial of USA Gymnastics and Michigan State University team doctor Larry Nassar earlier this year, ESPN has decided to honor the sexual assault survivor along with McKayla Maroney and Gabby Douglas at the ESPY awards this year.  

The sports network announced this week that the “Sister Survivors” will be acknowledged with the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the awards show this summer. “We are honored to recognize the courage of these women at the 2018 ESPYS…and to shine a very well-deserved spotlight on what speaking up, fighting back and demanding accountability can accomplish,” said ESPN Vice President Alison Overholt on Just Jared.

At the doctors trial in Janaury, 156 women — mothers, sisters, daughters and Olympians — spoke out against him which ultimately ended in the shameful doctor being sentenced to up to 175 years in prison on multiple counts of sexual assault. “For 25 years, the Arthur Ashe Award for Courage has been given to those who change the world in important ways…This tribute will reflect the awe and admiration these individuals deserve and the future will undoubtedly be different because of the actions of these heroic women,” said Maura Mandt, executive producer of the ESPYS.

The 2018 ESPY Awards will air on Wednesday, July 10. For more news, read about Jessie Reyez and Bebe Rexha as they accuse Beyonce’s producer of sexual misconduct.
