Swimming Australia will set up an independent panel to investigate issues relating to the experiences of women and girls in the sport.

The move comes after Rio Olympic silver medallist Madeline Groves withdrew from the Australian Olympic swimming trials and then complained on social media about misogynists and perverts exploiting female athletes.

Swimming Australia's chief executive Alex Baumann said that he did not know if swimming had institutional problems with women but "that's what we want to determine."

Groves posted on Instagram that her decision to withdraw from the trials is mostly "the culmination of years of witnessing and 'benefiting' from a culture that relies on people ignoring bad behaviour to thrive. I need a break."

She has also alleged she was body-shamed and told that she did not “deserve more help” following two surgeries.

Baumann said the investigations stemmed solely from Groves's complaints.

"Obviously with some of the communications, some of the tweets, I think we have to investigate some of those issues," he told reporters on Saturday afternoon.

He said no-one from Swimming Australia had spoken to Groves since she withdrew from the trials, which began in Adelaide today.

"We've tried to make contact with Madeline Groves, but she has not replied," he said.

Baumann said Swimming Australia had also tried to speak to Groves after she made a series of complaints on social media last year.

"Similarly, to what we did in December, when she had those tweets as well in terms of making contact and if there is an issue to come to us and we will certainly investigate it but unfortunately she never responded to that," he said.

Groves furore as she quits Olympics

  Groves furore as she quits Olympics Australian swimmer Maddie Groves has slammed "misogynistic perverts" in the sport while announcing her withdrawal from the trials for the Tokyo Olympics.The target of Groves' comments in social media posts was not immediately clear.

Swimming Australia responds to Maddie Groves 's allegations , saying it has tried to get in touch with the Olympic silver medallist and urging her to come forward with more details of her concerns of "misogynistic perverts in the sport". Key points: Groves alleged there were "misogynistic perverts" in swimming , as she withdrew from Olympic trials. She had tweeted last year that she had complained about a swimming worker and the way "they stare at me in my togs". Swimming Australia president Kieren Perkins said the organisation had tried to make contact with Groves this week.

Australian swimming star Madeline Groves slammed "perverts" within her sport, saying, "You can no longer exploit young women and girls, body shame or medically gaslight them." Madeline showed support for her fellow swimmers , noting that "whatever happens I genuinely think this will be one of the fastest Australian Swim Teams ever Best of luck to everyone competing at Olympic Trials." But the 200-meter butterfly champ later revealed the real reason she opted out of the games this year.

"It would be great if she could engage with us."

Baumann said no other swimmer had come forward to swimming Australia with complaints about their treatment.

He said he did not think the sport had a problem with poor attitudes towards women.

"But I think this is what we're setting up to try to find out, so we're setting up this panel to exactly take a look at that.

The independent panel will be led by Swimming Australia director Tracy Stockwell, who said she did not think swimming had a problem with women.

"We've made lots of improvements, but we need to do a little bit more looking into this to see what the issues are, are there issues, and what do we do moving forward to protect our athletes?" she said.

"When we have any accusations of misbehaviour or inappropriate behaviour, we take that very seriously.

"In light of the fact that we don't have her coming forward, we need to look at our complaints process as well to see is there some reason why she's not coming forward and get to the bottom of it.

"What we're trying to be is as open and transparent as possible."

The terms of reference of the independent all-female panel are yet to be set.
