USA Gymnastics, the sport’s national governing body, must make athlete safety a priority over winning medals, an independent review has found.

It follows an investigation into how the organisation has handled a number of abuse incidents involving gymnasts and an order to send one doctor to trial on charges of criminal sexual assault.
