Moore is the latest in the 260-long list of people who claimed to have been abused by Nassar.
The USOC's Scott Blackmun stepped down as CEO this week amid investigations into whether the organization's officials knew about the allegations and attempted a cover-up. The Committee also announced reform to help protect athletes from abuse.
