FIG informs us about this gymnastics event held in Canada:
“Gymnasts of all ages will getting an upside-down look at the world on Saturday, January 23rd, when they share the experience of performing a handstand at precisely 2 PM, wherever they live in Canada, as part of National Gymnastics Week which runs from January 18-24.
From recreational gymnastics programmes all the way up to national teams in Artistic Gymnastics, Rhythmic Gymnastics and Trampoline, Gymnastics Canada has over 200,000 individual members, including 20,000 competitive gymnasts and 7,500 certified coaches. An astounding 30 million people are members of their country’s gymnastics federation, making the sport one of the most popular in the world.
“There is room for everyone in this sport, from the recreational gymnast who participates just for fun, to the high performance international competitor who is drawn by the allure of a Gold medal,” says Gymnastics Canada CEO, Jean-Paul Caron of Ottawa.“
Will you join them?
By the way, I´m moving to Canada, Vancouver, in four days and not only for the Olympics… I´ll stay there for a longer time. But as I´m still able to read German and write English everything will be the same here on Gymnicetic (maybe some extra posts about the Winter Olympic Games?). I´ll still report about gymnastics in Germany as well as the international gymnastics scene. But unfortunately 😦 I won´t be able to attend the German Championships in artistic gymnastics (just when I leave the city they will be in Berlin) & the Berlin Master (rhythmic gymnastic) this year.
I´m happy about any gymnastics-in-Vancouver or only-Vancouver related tip or advise you have for me. 🙂 It will be my first time in Canada.
