With the countdown now on, Glasgow and Scotland are getting ready to welcome 600 world-class gymnasts from over 90 countries as they compete for a Word-Title! The Championships will be held at The SSE Hydro from 23 October – 1 November and to celebrate 50 Days to Go the 2015 World Gymnastics Championships team will be hosting a pop-up event on Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow this Saturday.
Paul Bush OBE, VisitScotland’s Director of Events, said: “Scotland has proven itself as the perfect stage for events in recent years and the 2015 World Gymnastics Championships in Glasgow are another shining example of this. The event has attracted a record number of entries from more participating countries than ever before, demonstrating the appetite among world-class athletes to compete on the world stage in Glasgow. As an important qualifying event for the Rio Olympic Games, spectators at the SSE Hydro Arena are set to witness an exhilarating contest among the world’s finest gymnasts at the very pinnacle of their powers.”
EventScotland worked in partnership with British Gymnastics, UK Sport and Glasgow City Council to host this prestigious event.
