Welcome to the World Gymnaestrada 2019!
This time it’s Africa!
In mid-January the FIG‘s Gymnastics for All committee held another course to promote its activities. This time the place to be was Cotonou/Benin whereby 14 representatives of the countries Cameroon, Congo, Senegal, Burkina Faso and Benin as well as the FIG delegates Flemming Knudsen and Ruedi Steuri took part. Thanks to the great organizational work of Benin’s gymnastics president Isidore Gbaguidi the course was very well received and could be used by our CEO Erwin Reis to promote the participation of African countries at the next World Gymnaestrada in Dornbirn.
