DPR Korea Gymnastics Association – post 2 year ban


All has been quiet from the DPR Korean Gymnastics Federation since they were banned from competition for 2 years by the FIG. The Asian Gymnastics Union reports that this has caused huge problems among the Federation:

The operation of the Association’s Head Office is almost in disorder, there is a tendency that many promising gymnasts want to leave, social support cannot be expected as much as before, it gets harder to find young boys and girls willing to do gymnastics, gymnastics clubs are to be closed, there is a lot of worry about the mass gymnastics activities and so on.

An extraordinary congress of the DPR Korea Gymnastics Association was summoned to discuss the “fatal circumstances” that they are now face. New executive members were elected to the Association during the Extraordinary Congress.

It’s been said before but I’ll say it again, it’s a real pity that the current elite WAG gymnasts from DPR Korea who were not at fault have been punished, and too for the MAG gymnasts and can now not compete in London 2012. It wasn’t their fault. Lets hope the newly elected executive members can set things straight, although with the current age scandal going on with the Chinese in the skating world, it seems that this will still continue.
