Rick Westhead investigates the toxic culture of abuse in Canadian gymnastics that haunts young athletes for years. What happens when authoritarian coaches who run their gyms through fear are handed the reins of a Canadian gymnastics program? Canadian gymnasts speak out about the inappropriate behaviour they witnessed and the abuse they experienced as children. A proposed class-action lawsuit has been filed against Gymnastics Canada and six provincial gymnastics federations over alleged abuse.
