The Dutch gymnastics coach Vincent Wevers on leave for allegations of abuse denies the use of violence against his protégés.

The Dutch gymnastics association KNGU therefore suspended him and Gerben Wiersma on Wednesday and initiated an independent investigation.

Wevers admitted to working on the wrong culture. "When I started, I joined the culture that prevailed at the time. It was very hard and Spartan with little say.

Former gymnast Joy Goedkoop said in a TV interview on Sunday that she had been beaten and kicked by Wevers in childhood during the units. Goedkoop was educated in Oldenzaal from the age of seven to the age of twelve by the father of Rio Olympic champion Sanne Wevers.

Then she moved to Heerenveen, where she trained under Wiersma. "In Heerenveen, physical violence was over, but it was inhumane there too," complained Goedkoop: "There was no room for tiredness, injuries and other feelings."

Years ago, top gymnasts had complained about ill-treatment, but the Dutch gymnastics association KNGU did not take it seriously.
