Greetings from the international Federation
..

Arthur Gander quite literally left his mark on the history of artistic gymnastics when he wrote the first points code 70 years ago. He gave the sport its first real set of rules and with them its wings to take to the skies.

 

As President of the International Gymnastics Federation, I am pleased to see such a high-level competition honouring the memory of this great man, who led the FIG for a decade.

 

Since it was created in the 1980s, great champions have been added to the Arthur Gander Memorial roll. This 35th annual event will once again put our most talented gymnasts back in the spotlight just a few weeks after the Doha World Championships.

 

I wish you all an excellent competition!   

 

Morinari Watanabe,

FIG President
