Next weekend (17-19 April) the B-category World Cup “42nd Salamun Memorial” will be held in Maribor, Slovenia. The competition is recognised as a FIG World Cup for artistic gymnastics since 2005 and for rhythmic gymnastics since 2007.
International Gymnast posted a list of the participating athletes. 73 men but only 30 women will compete. Between a lot of new names, there are some well-known athletes. For example, Diego Hypolito (BRA) will compete on FX, VT and HB. Local heros Mitja Petkovsek (second on PB at Europeans) and Aljaz Pegan will try to win the titles on PB or HB.
After not being able to do the all-around at the Europeans, Kristina Goryunova (RUS) gets a new chance to shine on FX and BB. Other female athletes are Suzanne Harmes (NED), Adela Sajn (SLO), Tina Erceg (CRO) and Ana Claudia Silva (BRA).
