Gimnastas hablan de su pesadilla: “Nos tratan como pedazos de carne”

Un nuevo día y otra denuncia que hacen los gimnastas británicos. Tras el “clima del miedo” que destaparon las hermanas Becky y Ellie Downie, ahora fue el medallista olímpico Nile Wilson el que alzó la voz en contra de las autoridades que maltratan a los deportistas en Reino Unido.

Wilson, de 24 años de edad, decidió ayudar a los jóvenes que se están formando en la actualidad. Debido a su reputación en la disciplina, afirmó cómo es la preparación de los gimnastas detrás de las cámaras, cuando el atropello y el acoso dicen presente.

“Los gimnastas son aún, en mi opinión, tratados como trozos de carne. Lo describiría absolutamente como una cultura del abuso, y yo lo viví y respiré durante 20 años”, afirmó a la BBC. “Es la manipulación emocional, ser empujado por el dolor físico es sin duda algo que yo viví. Yo diría que fui maltratado. Pero queríamos ganar medallas olímpicas, los dirigentes querían ganar medallas olímpicas, los entrenadores querían ganar medallas olímpicas”.

La gimnasia vive su época más oscura en la actualidad. En los Estados Unidos hay una investigación por un escandalo sexual que salpicó a la federación del país norteamericano. Simone Biles, máxima figura entre los gimnastas, denunció que fue víctima de Larry Nassar.

En Londres, la situación es similar. En enero de 2020, Wilson reveló que sufrió de abuso por parte de un dirigente en una competencia. Tras una investigación, la denuncia fue archivada. “Me dijeron, y lo sentí, que yo era el problema. Tenía la impresión de no ser escuchado, no les importaba”, explicó el atleta.

Miedo, el arma que usan contra los gimnastas

De acuerdo al reportaje de BBC, el club de gimnasia de Leeds se defendió de las acusaciones de Nile Wilson. Aseguraron que la investigación fue “profesional” y no se comprobó nada de lo que dijo el deportista.

 El gimnasta, en cambio, abandonó las instalaciones y afirmó que no habló antes por miedo. Temía que, de revelar el abuso, podía perder su cupo para los próximos Juegos Olímpicos.

“Creo que hay un elemento masivo de control. Nos hacen sentir miedo, o miedo de hablar, expresar nuestras preocupaciones, porque nos tienen en sus manos. Si expreso mi preocupación, eso podría comprometer mi selección para los Juegos Olímpicos. La razón por la que hablo es que mi incidente de este año subraya que hay aún muchas cosas que cambiar en la gimnasia y que eso comienza desde arriba”, afirmó.
