Jamie Dantzscher, Jessica Howard and Jeanette Antolin "accused Nassar, a volunteer team doctor for USA Gymnastics for nearly three decades before his tenure ended in July 2015, of touching them inappropriately while he disguised the abuse as treatment".
Jonathan LaPook and produced by Andy Court and Sarah Fitzpatrick, the report included interviews with Jamie Dantzscher, a 2000 Olympic bronze medalist; Jeanette Antolin, who was on the 1999 US team that went to the world championships, and Jessica Howard, the 1999 national champion in rhythmic gymnastics.
A third gymnast told "60 Minutes" the team fostered a culture in which none of the women felt they could speak up.
She detailed how Mr Nassar allegedly molested her during family visits to his home in Holt, Michigan, from 1998 to 2005. ". he would put his fingers inside of me and move my leg around". "He would tell me I was going to feel a pop". She says it felt like "we weren't allowed to even smile in the gym" and by contrast Dr. Nassar was a friendly face amongst the adults.
Nassar, 53, received a medical degree from Michigan State in 1993 and returned to teach and become doctor for the women's gymnastics team. We believe one instance of child abuse - whether at a school, church or gym - is one too many, and we are saddened when any child has been harmed during his or her athletic career.
"They are willing, almost, (to say),"What do I have to do to get there?' A lot of times they think, 'This medical treatment, it may be weird, but it's the price that I have to pay in order to be able to get there, '" Hogshead-Makar said".
"The girls would say 'Yeah, he touches you amusing'".
"I remember being uncomfortable because of the area", Antolin, who was on the national team from 1995 to 2000 and competed at the 1999 world championships, said. He has also been charged with possessing child pornography. The organization had said it "immediately" reported the allegations involving Nassar, who's in a MI jail charged with possession of child pornography and criminal sexual conduct in unrelated cases.
The interviews to be aired on "60 Minutes" will revolve around when Nassar would work on the girls at the National Team Training Center, which is stationed at the Karolyi Ranch in Texas. Thursday's revelations could rebut any claims that USA Gymnastics turned a blind eye to Nassar or was slow to respond to claims of abuse.

The Dolphins also didn't really miss much of a beat in the regular season when Matt Moore took over for an injured Tannehill. He lost his starting job at defensive end in October and appeared in 13 games (five starts) for Miami in 2016.
Before Nassar was sacked by MSU in September 2016, he was an acclaimed physician at MSU's sports-medicine clinic.
Jeanette Antolin, on the United States team from 1995 to 2000 and a member of the 1999 world championship squad that competed in China, recalled putting her trust in Nassar as well. "It was treatment. You don't complain about treatment". "And then he just continued to go into more and more intimate places", she tells LaPook.
More than 50 women have filed criminal and/or civil complaints alleging they were sexually abused by Nassar.
More than 30 women and girls say Nassar abused them while under his care. The gymnasts say they were often alone with Nassar and he did not wear gloves.
USA Gymnastics said this week that it hired an investigator after learning of "athlete concerns" about Nassar in June 2015. He left USA Gymastics in fall 2015 with little notice.
Last September, two former gymnasts - one an Olympic medalist who remains anonymous - told the Indianapolis Star of allegations of abuse by Nassar.
In the lawsuits, several victims said they had complained to others, including former MSU head gymnastics coach Kathie Klages, about Nassar but nothing was done.
Michigan State University says former Chicago federal prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald is leading an internal review of the work of a sports doctor accused of sexually assaulting athletes.
