The 2016 Gympies Gymnova Cup is happening this weekend!

De Gympies Keerbergen gymnastics club is hosting an amazing International competition for Youngsters and Juniors this weekend. This meet is also an occasion for younger gymnasts to make their debut on the international stage.

The competition will start on Saturday with the Youngsters at 10am. The Juniors will make their entrance at 4pm. Events finals will take place on Sunday with a very interesting format: the 6 best Juniors and the 2 best Youngsters on each events, allowing the younger ones to compete against more experienced gymnasts. This year's edition will gather teams from Belgium, Romania, Spain, the Netherlands, Great Britain, Italy, Israel, Danemark, France, Germany, Luxembourg, Switzerland and Turkey.

This meet is well known in the gymnastics circuit and has seen a lot of young gymnasts participate at European and World Championships! Italy's Enus Mariani became Junior European Champion in 2012, Laura Jurca and Andreea Iridon from Romania competed at last year's World Championships and Spanish gymnast Roxana Popa became a fan favourite at the 2013 Worlds.

Of course, it is also a way for the hosting club to introduce its own gymnasts. In the past, De Gympies trained great talents such as Bérengère Fransolet, 7th all-around at the 2012 European Championships, Jelle Beullens, member of TeamBelGYM, and Rune Hermans, also a National Team member, who placed 19th all-around at last year's World Championships in Glasgow.

The Gympies Gymnova Cup appears to be an amazing springboard for the next generation of top gymnasts!

In addition to the Youngsters and Espoirs competition, De Gympies is also hosting an interclubs competition that will start at 9am on Sunday.
