23rd FIG Acrobatic Gymnastics World Championships
Lake Buena Vista (USA), April 16 - 18, 2012
Twenty-two countries were represented when the 23rd edition of the Acrobatic Gymnastics World Championships opened at the HP Field House of the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Lake Buena Vista (USA). Held outside Europe for the very first time since its debut in 1974 under IFSA leadership, the bi-annual event did not only determine this year’s World Champions, it qualified gymnasts for the 9th World Games in Cali (COL) in 2013.
With Brazil and Colombia participating for the first time at an Acro World Championships, all continents represented, the discipline has taken an important step toward worldwide development.
