The U.S. Olympic Committee has given the USA Gymnastics board six days to step down in the wake of former USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar's sentencing to 40 to 175 years for sexually abusing hundreds of female athletes, CNN reports. An independent investigation into the matter is forthcoming to see if anyone willfully ignored reports of abuse.

By the numbers: 3 board members resigned earlier this week but 18 directors remain.
