Presidency of the FIG in 2016

January 23, 2015

European bid

The European Union of Gymnastics (UEG) has taken note of the decision of the French Federation of Gymnastics (FFG) to present the bid of Georges Guelzec as President of the International Federation of Gymnastics (FIG). The current President, Prof. Bruno Grandi (ITA) has in fact informed that he will not represent himself for a 5th mandate.

 

Georges Guelzec presides the UEG since 2010 and, in this capacity, attends the Executive meetings of the FIG. Since its foundation in 1881, the FIG have known 8 presidents, all representing the UEG, the most important union with its 48 countries out of the 142 that counts the FIG, i.e. more than one-third.

 

The election of the 9th and new President of the FIG will be held in October 2016, on the occasion of the 81st Congress already attributed to the town of Tokyo (JPN).
