2013: (New) World Cup Series

Actually, the changes to the FIG World Cup series, which were announced by Wolfgang Willam during the Worlds in Tokyo, aren’t too big. There will still be four all-around competitions and two event final competitions, a prize money of altogether 1 million CHF (about 1.1 million dollars) but there’s also a new schedule of the AA World Cups: All four of them will take place from December to April without a break due to Worlds or Europeans or the Olympics. Host countries for 2013/2014 are Germany and Great Britain (both December), USA (March) and Japan (April). The top eight gymnasts from Worlds will not only compete for medals and prize money but also a jackpot of 50.000 CHF for the overall-winner of the series. This amount of money should motivate gymnasts to participate in every competition of the series.
