0,11411,5187-0-177843-0-custom317483,00

The Stuttgart World Cup kicks off on Saturday. At this event, Philipp Boy is expected to make an announcement regarding his gymnastics future, he may retire. Following a nasty fall on high bar at last years Stuttgart World Cup he has been struggling to regain his confidence. That, combined with injuries throughout 2012 may indicate retirement.

This years competition is rather exciting with the addition of a team competition. A maximum number of 4 gymnasts per country can compete per team with 16 being the minimum age. It’s 3 up and 2 scores count so there is little room for error. There will only be one vault per gymnast.
