Australian gymnastics inquiry uncovers 'culture of abuse'

The Australian Human Rights Commission (AHRC) found that bullying and body-shaming were prevalent at elite levels.

The report highlighted a win-at-all-costs culture that created a risk of harm and abuse.

Gymnastics Australia, which commissioned the review last year, called the findings "confronting".

"Gymnastics Australia unreservedly apologises to all athletes and family members who have experienced any form of abuse participating in the sport," it said in a statement.
