As you will be aware, in August 2020, Gymnastics New Zealand (Gymnastics NZ) commissioned David Howman to conduct an Independent Review into the sport, following the distressing and deeply concerning allegations of physical, mental and emotional abuse of former and current athletes.
Mr Howman, and his assistants Dr Lesley Nicol and Rachel Vickery, have now completed this review and are preparing to release it.
Gymnastics NZ will receive the report on Thursday 4 February. Once the organisation has had an opportunity to read and digest the report, it will be released to the gymnastics community, key stakeholders, and other interested parties, in full and unedited, on Tuesday 9 February.
Gymnastics NZ thanks you for your patience, and we look forward to being in touch again on 9 February.
