"Jennifer Pinches, a 2012 British Olympian, said that this most recent global push to change the sport was sparked by a Netflix documentary, “Athlete A,” which depicts the harrowing training of American elite gymnasts and the cover-ups that surrounded U.S.A. Gymnastics’s sexual abuse scandal involving its longtime doctor, Lawrence G. Nassar."

"In the last fortnight there has been a deluge of emotional and physical abuse allegations made by gymnasts around the world, including Great Britain, Holland, Australia and Ireland. UK Sport and Sport England have since co-commissioned an independent review into the reports against British Gymnastics, while similar investigations are also happening in Switzerland and Holland.
Alongside their independent investigation, the Royal Dutch Gymnastics Union (KNGU) also published an open letter to the FIG. It described the negative sporting culture portrayed in Netflix documentary Athlete A as "not isolated" to US gymnastics, but as present in their own country and "a risk for the entire world of gymnastics”.
– THE TELEGRAPH
"The release of the Netflix documentary Athlete A, about abuse in the sport in America, prompted numerous Australian gymnasts to tell their stories."
– THE GUARDIAN
"Truth gives power to abused gymnasts."
"Blind eyes and cover-ups are ubiquitous in “Athlete A,” one of the best of the many powerful #MeToo-era documentaries."
