Gymnastics ruled over culture of bullying and fat shaming according to Olympian Amy Tinkler

Amy Tinkler is the highest-profile gymnast so far to accuse British Gymnastics of ruling over a bullying and fat-shaming culture.

The 21-year-old alleged she was called “fat” by one coach and celebrated for looking better after coming out of hospital after having food poisoning by another coach.

The gymnast, who won a bronze medal at the Rio Olympics in 2016, says she would hand the medal back to have not “gone through” years of what she claims were abusive comments and practices.

    Bullying and fat shaming are two different stories. Dont conflate the two together. Bullying is wrong. Telling somebody they are fat, 1) isn't shaming, its true and 2) is constructive criticism.

    The Secret of All Secret Societies

    The Third Eye. The Pyramids.

    The Third Eye = Telepaths, psychics. Nearly half of the global population is telepathic/psychic. Referred to in the modern day, as 'Awakening/Opening the Third Eye', telepaths/psychics aren't permitted to disclose much information to those who are not awake/aware i.e. telepathic/psychic. There are rules. There is a policing force also made of secret societies.

    The Pyramids = Ancient Pyramids of Egypt. Regarded as mysterious, with questions remaining to present day as to the purpose of their construction, answers are kept hidden within secret societies and the minds of telepaths. Revealed to only those who awaken their third eye and become telepathic, is the marvel of electricity existing in ancient times. Concepts of Free Energy are originally derived from the ancient pyramids, known for producing free electricity in mass volumes, instantaneously. This secret along with the actual methods that were used and needed to produce free energy are kept secret by half the world and regulated by secret societies. The pyramids were turned OFF a long time ago, they can be turned ON today if the secret and hidden powers to be wanted the world to have free energy.

    How? Electrical components, Inductors and Transformers (coils), do not transfer electricity but actually create free electricity. Solar energy fed back into an inductor or transformer, can create unlimited electricity instantaneously. Norms (non-telepaths), are often discouraged and confused when attempting to study electrical engineering or physics due to the false assertion of Electrons. There are no such thing as electrons, they are taught only to confuse norms so they don't figure out the solution to the worlds energy problems.

    There is a reason why the cartoon 'Transformers' was created, along with the lyric in it's theme song, "Transformers – More Than Meets The Eye."

    Age old story, young people wanting to achieve greatness or enjoy a sport will always be at the mercy of adults controlling their chances and hence susceptible to their abuse.

    I imagine it was way worse than she describes. At this level winning is all that counts, humanity is not important. I salute her for being brave enough to speak out.

    She's really brave to speak up for those who have been silenced through bullying and other forms of psychological and emotional intimidation. She's also advocating for future generations of victims of hidden abuse.
