Egypt to host the World Gymnastics Championship for the next 3 sessions

The International Gymnastics Federation granted Egypt the honor of hosting the tournament for three consecutive years during the period from March 12-20 in 2022, 2023 and 2024.

The federation announced its schedule for the World Cup Qualifying Series for the Paris 2024 Olympics, which will be held for the men’s and women’s artistic gymnastics singles equipment.

It stipulated that the host country hold the competition for three consecutive years at the same time, with fixed dates, according to schedules set from the first of January until March of each year.

The choice of Egypt to host the World Championship came after the great success in hosting the world championships recently in Cairo this year.

Egyptian gymnastics occupies seventh place in the annual international classification of the International Gymnastics Federation, in a precedent that caused strong reactions at the global level.

Egypt has surpassed giant countries in the game even though it was not on the world map before, such as United States, Turkey, France, China, Spain, Norway, Brazil, Australia, and most of Europe.
