On Jan. 9, 2018, Maggie Nichols released a statement informing the world that she, too, had been sexually assaulted by former USA Gymnastics team physician Larry Nassar.  She also let the world know that she was the one who had been identified only as “Athlete A” in the reports of Nassar’s actions, which he inflicted under the guise of medical treatment on more than 300 victims.  She did it to let everyone know that he did not do this to Athlete A, he did it to Maggie Nichols.  Maggie Nichols did this for all young girls who approach her for photos or autographs whenever she appears in public. She did it for the strangers who also were victims of abuse and feel ashamed, not empowered.  

From the time she was 3, Maggie Nichols spent countless hours in the gym to shape herself into a world-class gymnast. Maggie missed time with friends and holidays with family to pursue that dream.   But with all this training come injuries, Maggie knew about injuries as she had to deal with a lot of injuries throughout her career. But one injury brought her under the care of Dr. Larry Nassar.  Listen as Maggie tells her story.

Welcome back to Season 2 of the I Have Cool Friends podcast! Sam welcomes to the podcast collegiate gymnast, Maggie Nichols. Maggie is a junior at the University of Oklahoma and has already accomplished so much in her gymnastics career. Maggie won a gold medal with the American team and an individual bronze medal on floor exercise at the 2015 World Championships. Maggie has also earned five NCAA championship titles, including one team and four individual and she is the only gymnast in Oklahoma’s history to achieve a perfect 10 on all four events. In addition to these incredible feats, she received the first and only perfect 10 from the first meet of the 2019 NCAA season! Maggie is well-known for her motivational messages on social media and uplifting personality, which have contributed to her being an amazing teammate and friend.  

In this episode, Sam and Maggie talk all about college gymnastics and its importance to the overall sport today. From the perspective of two gymnasts who trained at both the Elite and collegiate levels, Maggie and Sam both understand the hard work and dedication necessary to achieve gymnastics greatness. Maggie walks Sam through her time at the University of Oklahoma, from their emotional second place finish in last year’s NCAA Championship to the new crop of freshman gymnasts they have this year. Maggie describes how she transitioned to the college scene with such grace and flawlessness. She talks about her coaches and the messages they relay to the team before and after every meet. Finally, Maggie gives her predictions of which teams she believes will be the Final Four on the Floor and shares one piece of advice that college gymnasts can utilize to get better every day.
