A Nation decided…

Over the last week, some countries have announced their squads for the World Championships in Tokyo. So far Canada, Germany, Japan, Russia and Ireland have announced their squads. The USA have announced their mens team for Worlds, but not their Women’s team, the Australian’s have also to announce their WAG team. With 38 days to go until the World Gymnastics Championships, we are sure to be hearing more regular news from the different Gymnastics Federations worldwide.

Some of the most interesting nations are still to announce their teams such as Romania, Great Britain, Italy, France and Spain. Many of those listed below will only announce their reserve team member once they hit Tokyo.
