Update, July 2021: The Review has now completed over 200 meetings with individuals who provided information in response to the Call for Evidence. A small number of meetings remain outstanding with British Gymnastics and other individuals/organisations and further documentation continues to be received from these sources. Anne Whyte QC is working hard to complete the Review as quickly as possible whilst also ensuring a thorough and fair investigation is undertaken and meaningful outcomes will be delivered. Ms Whyte QC now anticipates concluding her work in late 2021. Thank you to everyone who has contributed to the Review to date.

About the Whyte Review

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.

The Terms of Reference for the Whyte Review are available here. The Whyte Review has issued a Call for Evidence which is available here.

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.
