Abstract [en]

The concept of gender based violence (GBV) is not well known in academia or within the community of gymnastics stakeholders however its prevalence in sport along with an agenda to combat it is acknowledged. Drawing upon existing literature and current research data, we argue that women’s artistic gymnastics (WAG) provides a par example of GBV in sport. Firstly we briefly define and outline the fragmented situation concerning GBV in sport drawing attention to current legislation and existing prevention initiatives. Secondly we contextualise the socio-cultural conditions that make WAG prone to GBV by outlining six characteristics, with illustrations from published empirical data, which establish gender-bias and contribute to the gymnast having little autonomy in a risky environment. We conclude by suggesting that the illustrated observable situations could be used as amechanism for recognising GBV in WAG and reflect upon its use in a consistent approach to safeguarding gymnasts in the future.
