Independent review into gymnastics back to News
|The Whyte Review will look into allegations of mistreatment
|An independent review into allegations of mistreatment within gymnastics has formally begun.
The review, which has been co-commissioned by Sport England and UK Sport, follows a series of serious allegations being made in recent months about the treatment of gymnasts at all levels of the sport.
It will address whether:
- gymnasts’ wellbeing and welfare is (and has been) at the centre of the culture of British Gymnastics, its registered clubs and member coaches and if not, why not
- safeguarding concerns and complaints have been dealt with appropriately in the sport of gymnastics and if not, why not
- gymnasts, or their parents, carers or guardians, have felt unable to raise complaints with appropriate authorities and if so, why.
The review will be undertaken by Anne Whyte QC, a highly respected and experienced barrister with an extensive record of acting in complex criminal and civil litigation, as well as non-recent and institutional forms of abuse, both physical and sexual.
