Australian Human Rights Commission Review into Gymnastics

The Australian Human Rights Commission has published their report following their independent review of the culture and practices of gymnastics in Australia.

Gymnastics Australia commissioned the independent review in August 2020 in response to reports from the gymnastics community of unacceptable personal experiences.

The report was commissioned to better understand the sport’s culture, athlete experience and any barriers to reporting misconduct or abuse – right across the sport from local clubs to states and territories and at the national level.  

On this page of our website you will find a full copy of the report as well as a child friendly version of findings and recommendations.
