Former gymnasts have cast serious doubt over the review into abuse allegations at Gymnastics New Zealand.

The organisation commissioned an independent review in August, after a series of allegations about abusive practices. It's being led by sports integrity expert David Howman and former top athletes Lesley Nicol and Rachel Vickery.

Athlete advocate Roger Mortimer is representing some of the former athletes who have taken part in the review.

He told sports reporter Felicity Reid it lacks the expertise it needs.
