Some information about the "FIG 1st Junior World Championship"

The brand-new Irina Viner-Usmanova Gymnastics Palace in Moscow hosted the 1st FIG Rhythmic Gymnastics Junior World Championships from 19-21 July with more than 300 young gymnasts from 60-plus nations competing for eight titles. A first for the sport. The first Junior World Championships have certainly proved popular. A grand total of 129 gymnasts, representing 57 nations, have signed up for the individual programme, with a further 183 youngsters from 32 countries slated to take part in the group events. With a roof designed to resemble a fluttering ribbon, the 26,000-square metre Irina Viner-Usmanova Gymnastics Palace will provide a truly world-class stage for the planet’s future Rhythmic stars to parade their talent. The facility, which opened its doors only last month, has three training and choreography halls, an ultra-modern gym, a health and rehabilitation centre, catering facilities, a media centre, a hotel and more. There is even an interactive museum dedicated to showcasing the history of the sport.
