After the success of the EYOF events, the city of Győr will once again host a large-scale gymnastics event in 2019. For the first time, the Junior Gymnastics World Championship will be held in Győr, which will be launched by the International Gymnastics Association after the Hungarian proposal. The event will take place between the 27th and 30th June, 2019, when both boys and girls from all around the world can show their talents. We expect 75-80 countries to participate; of course we can see the Hungarian gymnasts, who take part in team competitions for 3-3 people besides their individual ones. We can safely say that one of the biggest names on the World Championship can be Krisztián Balázs, who has won gold medal in a mixed team at the Youth Olympics last year, and has won silver and bronze medals in the individual contests. We hope that Hungarian gymnasts will win more medals in their domestic environment. Let’s encourage our young athletes, cheer for their successful performance, and be proud that the city of Győr will organize the first ever World Junior Gymnastics Championship.
