Anne Whyte QC appointed to undertake an independent review (The Whyte Review) into the issues raised in British Gymnastics

In July 2020 a significant number of gymnasts, and parents of gymnasts, made allegations about mistreatment within the sport of gymnastics. A number of the concerns alleged that British Gymnastics had failed to deal appropriately with complaints it had received. In response to these issues being raised, UK Sport and Sport England ('the Commissioning Organisations') have appointed Anne Whyte QC ('the Reviewer') to undertake an independent review ('The Whyte Review') into the issues that have been raised.  

At the conclusion of the Whyte Review, a final written report will be produced and provided to the Commissioning Organisations. The Commissioning Organisations will publish the Report on this website, subject to any relevant legal considerations. The Commissioning Organisations shall consider carefully the recommendations made by the Reviewer and determine the manner in which any recommendations to be taken forward will be implemented by British Gymnastics.

The Call for Evidence is now open. The Whyte Review invites submissions from all individuals and organisations who hold information relevant to its Terms of Reference. Please submit evidence to by 5pm on Friday 25 September 2020.

The official website for The Whyte Review can be accessed here.  The Terms of Reference for the Whyte Review are available here. The Whyte Review has issued a Call for Evidence which is available here.
