The 22nd Acrobatic Gymnastics World Championships will start in less than 35 hours. Wroclaw (POL) welcomes 25 different countries and 191 gymnasts for the competitions (men’s pairs, women’s pairs, mixed pairs, women’s group, men’s group) from 16-18 July.
I don’t want to write a long post – all I have to do is this link to the official FIG website (yes, FIG actually gives us good reports about a gymnastics competition). They have everything: interviews, reports, results, photos…
And for the one thing they don’t have – a livestream – just click on the following link to Acrogym TV! (First check the schedule in order to know which group will start at which time.) That’s great for a sport that barely gets time on TV – aside from the recent attention for the Spelbound on Britain’s Got Talent… by the way the some members of Spelbound will proof their excellence in front of “real” gymnastics judges.
From 10-12 the 6th Acrobatic Gymnastics Age Group (“Junior”) World Championships (age groups 11-16 / 12-19) already took place. The big winners: Russia (5x gold / 2x silver / 2x bronze), Great Britain (2x / 5x / -), Belarus (2x / – / 3x) and Ukraine (1x / – / 2x).
