About the World Cup of Gymnastics
Fresh from the Olympics in Rio, some of the top international talent in gymnastics gather at the O2 Arena to compete in the World Cup of Gymnastics. The format of the competition means that each athlete must compete in all disciplines, which means you’ll get to witness some of the best all-rounders in the sport. The event is part of the International Gymnastics Federation World Cup Series which features men and women from eight countries competing here in London, in America and in Stuttgart to collect enough points to gain the overall title. Broadcast on Sky Sports and featuring Olympians Max Whitlock and Bryony Page, this is one you won’t want to miss.
