|Description||Born in Little Canada, New Mexico, Nichols fell in love with gymnastics at just 3 years old. At 14, she joined the U.S. National Team and traveled the world competing, becoming a top contender for the 2016 Olympics.|
The popular documentary, "Athlete A," details her journey of reporting misconduct and sexual abuse from her Olympic team doctor, Larry Nasser. Sharing her experience alongside other survivors, Nichols continues to advocate, speak out and discuss the abuse that was ongoing in the Olympic teams. After leaving the elite gymnastics world in 2016, she joined the University of Oklahoma to compete in the NCAA. Today, she is a student assistant coach for Oklahoma and is pursuing her master's in adult and higher education, hoping to become a university athletic director.
Passionate about sharing her story, she continues to empower her audience - both athletes and non-athletes alike - and inspire those around her.
