International Acrobatic Gymnastics competition cancelled in Ukraine20/02/2014
Lausanne (SUI), FIG Office, February 20, 2014: The Ukrainian Gymnastics Federation has made the decision to cancel the international Acrobatic Gymnastics tournament, «Stars Above The Boug River», which was to have taken place on February 25, 2014, in Vinnitsa, a city situated 250 km south-west of the capital, Kiev.
This decision is motivated by organisational difficulties presented by the internal political situation in Ukraine.
This tournament officially recognised by the International Gymnastics Federation (FIG), had registered the participation of some 200 junior and senior category gymnasts, representing 14 national federations.
The FIG has taken note of this decision with understanding and addressed its message of compassion and hope for the whole country, with hopes that it may recover its calm and serenity as soon as possible.
