The draw for the 31st edition of the Rhythmic World Championships took place recently at the FIG headquarters, with the FIG President himself on hand to oversee proceedings.
Montpellier 2011 will be particularly significant for two reasons, as it will first serve as the first of two qualification routes to the 2012 Olympics. The 15 best individual gymnasts in the All-around and the six best groups overall will book their tickets to London! The competition will also qualify the gymnasts for the World Games to be held in Cali (COL) in 2013 and featuring Gymnastics with its Rhythmic individuals, Trampoline synchro, Aerobic and Acrobatic Gymnastics.

The FIG and the Ukrainian Gymnastics Federation have signed an agreement that will see Ukraine play host to the 32nd Rhythmic Gymnastics World Championships in 2013. It will be the first time that Ukraine has staged such a prestigious event.
