  • ITV News announced that a former GB gymnastics coach – Craig Lowther – has been named specifically in a bullying scandal. The coach was, they said, the source of “daily humiliation”.

    ITV News has named a former elite-level coach allegedly involved in the growing scandal of bullying and abuse of young gymnasts.

    Craig Lowther, who was head of British Gymnastics’ trampoline and tumbling programme which won Team GB’s first ever medal in the event at the Rio Games, has been accused of bullying and emotional abuse.

    Two of his former gymnasts have told ITV News that behind the triumphs he bullied them over their weight and one of them over their sexuality.

    One is Charlie Arbuthnot – a former youth British Champion tumbler and another is Amanda Parker, the 2013 World Synchronised Champion trampolinist.

    It comes as several athletes and gymnasts have already broken their silence about their shocking mistreatment they endured during their training.
