Gymnastics Festival of Portugal
Guimaraes (POR), June 8 – 10, 2013
LAUSANNE (SUI), FIG Office, June 11, 2013: The first edition of the Gymnastics Festival of Portugal took place in Guimaraes from June 8 - 10, with 5,000 participants from 122 gymnastics clubs.
The three-day event comprised nine disciplines – Gymnastics for All, Men's Artistic, Women's Artistic, Rhythmic, Trampoline, Aerobic, Acrobatic, TeamGym and Hip Hop – and included National Championships, Portugal Cups, Exhibitions, Opens, music concerts, parties and the main Gala showcasing the best presentations.
For the first time at national level, the Gymnastics Festival of Portugal was organised by the Gymnastics Federation of Portugal along with the Executive Committee of Guimaraes 2013, European City of Sport. Guimaraes is Portugal’s historical birthplace and June 10 is also Portugal Day. It was quite a challenge to stage all the disciplines simultaneously, but it was a huge success and a milestone in the history of Portuguese gymnastics.
