All You Need to Know: European Championships 2015

affiche-gym

The MAG and WAG Senior European Gymnastics Championships will return to the Parks and Suites Area in the city of Montpellier France once again for 2015. The same venue hosted the MAG Euro’s event in 2012. April 15th to 19th will see nearly 40 nations represented at the European Championships, 38 in MAG and 33 in WAG.

Competition Format

This year the Men’s and Women’s Senior competition is being held together. There is no team competition, just the All Around and Individual Apparatus. A MAG “team” can consist of up to 6 while a WAG “team” can consist to a max of 4 gymnasts. During qualification 4 gymnasts per country can compete on all apparatus while during Event Finals and the All Around final, the usual 2 per country rule applies. The top 24 gymnasts qualified will compete in the AA final whereas the top 8 qualified per apparatus will advance to the Individual Apparatus finals.

Who is competing?
