espnW: How have the past nine months been for you since you came forward?
Wieber: It’s been a crazy nine months, definitely not how I expected it to go. It’s been very emotional, with so many ups and downs. What happened in January was a very hard time, but it fueled a new passion in me, and now I’m so determined to make gymnastics a safer sport and to ensure changes are made to make sure someone can’t come on and take advantage like Larry Nassar did. The past nine months have been busy but definitely rewarding. Talking about it constantly is not easy, but if it’s helping people, then I am willing to do it.
