Interim Whyte Review report published

Today the Whyte Review published its interim report which can be found here

In response, Alastair Marks, who took up the role as interim CEO of British Gymnastics in January, said: "British Gymnastics welcomes the Whyte Review’s interim report. We are fully committed to doing everything possible to help the Review get the answers it needs to do what is right for the sport and gymnasts.

"I remain appalled by the claims I have heard and alarmed that some gymnasts do not feel that they can have their voice heard and have a future within the sport. I want to be clear to them that I will fight to ensure that no one raising concerns will ever see their gymnastic opportunities detrimentally impacted. There is no place for abuse in our sport and we are determined and committed to change it for the better.

"It is important to say that I have been encouraged by my conversations with the gymnastics community, including current and former gymnasts and coaches. There is a clear commitment and desire for us all to work together to drive further positive change that I will ensure happens.

"With hundreds of thousands of gymnasts looking forward to returning to the sport they love in the coming weeks we will continue to work hard to ensure the positives of the sport shine through again, including the dedication of thousands of coaches in communities across the country."
