This week in the history of European Gymnastics

July 10, 2017

Let’s have a look at what happened in European Gymnastics in the week from 10 to 16 July!


Close to 20.000 gymnasts from all corners of the world descended upon the Olympic Capital Lausanne to participate in the world’s biggest Gymnastics for All festival. With workshops and street performances, the city lived and breathed gymnastics the entire week, a true celebration of our sport. Lifelong friendships were formed, addresses exchanged and the gymnastics love sparked everywhere.

Several federations hold a national evening but the Swiss show is usually the most anticipated and expectations are high. Yet, the Swiss always manage to impress beyond believe.

Enjoy the show!



At the Acro World Championships in Levallois near the French capital Paris, living legend Revaz Gurgenidze paired with Marina Chernova to win the mixed pairs world title, regaining the title he last won in 2006 with Anna Katchalova. Reigning European Champions Alice Upcott and Dominic Smith took the silver, just a tenth behind the winners.

In a stifling heat of over 40 degrees, the 8th edition of EUROGYM, UEG’s Gymnastics for All festival for teenagers, kicked off in Coimbra (POR). The more than 3500 participants from 21 countries enjoyed a week of workshops where they learned about many different sports and games and performed their routines several times at one of the stages placed throughout the city.
