Artistic Gymnastics FIG World Championships 2021


 Share

Recommended Posts

Definitive registrations have been updated for the World Championships. To see the file, go here, click on "show files" then on "definitive registration".

It's nice to see that Syria, Serbia, Luxembourg and, especially, Bangladesh are sending gymnasts. Syria is not really a surprise, though, since they have a good vaulter that lives and trains in the United States. However, I'm very intrigued about Bangladesh. I didn't expect them to send any gymnasts. I'm kind of sad about Malaysia and Indonesia missing out entirely, unfortunately.

Also, a question for our :ESP members: why won't Spain send any women to the World Championships? Spain competed with a full team at the Olympics and Popa could even challenge for medals. What happened?

  • Sindo changed the title to Artistic Gymnastics FIG World Championships 2021

I have a feeling :GBR are in the end not going to send anyone. Whitlock is clearly not going and Fraser and Regini Moran have just had surgery. On the women side I think all four that went to Tokyo are going to take a break before a busy 2022 with two major home championships. 
 

:IRL will be there as Rhys McClenaghan has confirmed he is going.

The definitive registrations are still being updated at the FIG website. According to the directives, this process should have been completed about one month ago, but here we are and they're still updating the list. Probably the only notable change has been the inclusion of :VIE.

:BEL will not send any women to Worlds. Baffling decision, especially considering Nina Derwael is the reigning World and Olympic champion.

 

:BRA Flávia Saraiva will also miss Worlds, but Rebeca Andrade will very likely attend, thankfully. She has resumed training and is preparing for Worlds.
