All eyes on Odivelas (POR) for TeamGym Europeans

April 17, 2018

Preview of the 2018 TeamGym season

The TeamGym community focuses this year on the pinnacle of their discipline, the European Championships! To ensure an excellent preparation and testing of their competition routines, gymnasts have participated in the junior Nordic Championships last weekend in Finland and they will still have the opportunity to compete in one of the many club competitions.

The Portuguese Gymnastics Federation proudly hosts the 12th edition of the continental Championships in which junior and senior teams will battle for glory in three categories: women’s team, mixed team and men’s team. This event is scheduled for 17 to 20 October and the place to be is Odivelas, near the Lisbon airport. After the excellent atmosphere offered by the most recent editions, in Reykjavik (ISL) in 2014 and two years ago in Maribor (SLO), UEG counts on the enthusiasm of the Portuguese fans and the many visitors expected from the Nordic countries to show their support to all the participating gymnasts. We are sure they will compete in fantastic conditions, worthy of their performance.

On the floor, we expect to see exciting -and tight- battles. Can Denmark continue their dominance in the senior men’s team event? Or will Sweden take revenge for the many second places? Can Great Britain break onto the podium? Or Italy? And what can Portugal do in front of their home crowd? Many questions that will be answered in October!

Enjoy these highlights of the previous Europeans, held in 2016 in Maribor (SLO)!

 

This year UEG will exceptionally not hold a training camp. The Technical Committee will review the format and think of ways to further improve the set-up and quality of the camp so we can offer you a revamped model next year!
