"I had a dream to go to the Olympics, and the things that I had to endure to get there were unnecessary and disgusting," McKayla Maroney told Larry Nassar during his seven-day sentencing hearing, which concluded Wednesday with a sentence of up to 175 years in prison for criminal sexual conduct. The Olympic medalist was one of 160 women who accused the USA Gymnastics and Michigan State University doctor of abusing them. The New York Times rounds up quotes from each of them, including gymnast Jade Capua, who called Nassar a "monster who left me with more pain and scars than I came to his office with," and Kyle Stephens, a family friend and Nassar's first known victim, who warned: "Little girls don't stay little forever. They grow into strong women that return to destroy your world." Here's everything else you need to know.
