World of Gymnastics
The digital way
Starting with issue 72 in June 2014, World of Gymnastics magazine offers a digital edition and marks a first step in the logical evolution of a glossy that makes keeping up with its reader’s expectations a tradition. It’s a secret to no one that the 2014-generation of gymnastic fans likes to read the news on their mobiles, smartphones or tablets. This is today’s reality, and WoG designers picked up on the message.
Rather than simply being a digital version of the paper edition, the online mag will have a voice of its own, bringing a variety of pictures your way and with a tone that’s fresh, concise and current.
But progress doesn’t exclude sustainability. The paper version will carry on in a limited number since it also has its own particular demographic: promotion and as a collectible!
The digital evolution is a premiere in the life of this particular media – and it began back in 1979.
First edited under the FIG and AIPS (International Sports Press Association) labels, it was then turned over to Istvan Gyulaï (HUN) former television journalist – passed away in 2006 - who would become the IAAF Secretary General. The magazine was directed by MTC member Sandor Urvari (HUN), and then by Frank Edmonds (GBR), FIG Executive member at that time. 10,000 copies of the first issue – in French, English and German – were printed and distributed in 150 countries, four times annually. Collaboration with AIPS was terminated in 1989.
In 1990, the FIG Congress in Frankfurt (GER) decided to continue editing and distributing the World of Gymnastics magazine under a single FIG label. Number 0 came out in June 1991 under the direction of the current editor, six months after the transfer of the FIG head office to Moutier (SUI). In 2006, the magazine revamped presentation and took on the image it carried to its 71st edition in February 2014.
