Lawyers say that a $ 500 million settlement for the victims of sports medicine specialist Larry Nassar is not shared evenly, but instead is distributed on the basis of many factors. It is also not clear where the money should come from. (17th of May)
Kerry Perry, who began in December as CEO of the USA Gymnastics, announced the decision with no other details before she will call out to Congress next week.
Current members of the national team resisted the change in social media on Thursday night, and several gymnasts wrote that they learned that Perry Faehn was calling for a resignation.
In Instagram posts, they post the same message, saying in part, "We all vote strongly in this decision and believe that Rhonda is the glue that holds us together, we all TRUST her and believe that she does Team USA moved forward. "
Faehn, the senior vice president of the Women's Program, joined the US in May 2015.
In June 2015, coach Sarah Jantzi told Faehn that she had overheard her gymnast Maggie Nichols, who was talking about a treatment by longtime team doctor Larry Nassar that made her uncomfortable

Faehn immediately reported this then CEO Steve Penny
For months after the revelations of Nassar's abuse, USA Gymnastics claimed that it immediately reported it to the FBI. In February 2017, it admitted that it had waited five weeks while conducting its own internal investigations before the end of July 2015 to the FBI.
USA Gymnastics has stated that it did not disclose the reason for Nassar's departure and did not inform Michigan State, where Nassar was a longtime medical professional who blamed him for saying it was not directed by the FBI ,
At pressure from the US Olympic Committee, Penny resigned as CEO in March 2017.
Nassar, 54, is serving a 60-year federal fine for child pornography charges. He was convicted of sexual assault in Michigan for sexual assault and must be in prison for at least 40 years after his term of imprisonment is over.
Hundreds of women have accused Nassar, who was also a long-time Michigan State doctor, of abusing her under the guise of medical treatment. Olympic champions Simone Biles, Aly Raisman, Gabby Douglas, McKayla Maroney and Jordyn Wieber have also said that Nassar mistreated them.
Several women complained to Michigan State coaches and officials about Nassar, with one woman reporting her ill-treatment in 1997
USA Gymnastics faces several lawsuits related to Nassar's abuse. Michigan State this week approved a $ 500 million settlement for about 300 victims.
Perry, who has not spoken publicly since her appointment, will testify on Wednesday before the House Subcommittee on Supervision and Investigations.
