This recently happened to the parent of a GB national squad gymnast when they tried to report the abuse they experienced to BG.

Even after the publication of the Whyte Review, so many in the sport are still not getting it. ⬇️

Gymnastics NEW: Former coach Andrew Griffiths who most recently had been working as a choreographer at King Edmund club in Yate has been suspended by British Gymnastics.
He had been working there alongside Nik Thorne who is under investigation by BG.

So true, beware of sport administrators who were (or perpetrators) to abuse now reinventing themselves as safeguarding or human rights experts…they are everywhere and desperate to keep power

Interesting to see groups that have caused harm in Canadian sport, now positioning themselves as part of the solution.

You're either on the side of the institutions or on the side of the athlete. You can't be both.

We need a judicial inquiry to expose the rot in Cdn sport, now

🙏🏻 The Times and The Sunday Times SWOTY Rebecca Myers for a wonderful evening

Last night was a poignant reminder that
SPORT IS FEMINISM IN ACTION ✊🏼

It was a privilege to be with so many generations of women who have used their athletic aptitude in sport to create wider social change 💜💜💜
