Independent review into gymnastics

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.
