Watch Olympic gymnast Dominique Moceanu fall straight down on her head on the beam during the 1996 games.

The former Team USA gymnast, now 39, was 14 years old when she competed at the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta, where she helped the team to its gold medal win.

Dominique revealed that she was 'left alone' after the fall and given 'no cervical spine exam' despite falling on her neck

She posted the video to speak out about the 'abuse' she endured at the hands of her Team USA coaches, while detailing the long-lasting 'damage' their 'dangerous' tactics have left her with - more than two decades after she helped her team to win gold at the 1996 Games.
