2010 World Gymnastics Championships - Rotterdam

The World Gymnastics Championships will take place in Rotterdam, The Netherlands this year starting October 13-24. GK is one of the main sponsors of this event, the largest gathering in the gymnastics world for 2010.


A record number of 615 competitors will be vying for glory at the Rotterdam Worlds: 343 men and 272 women from 73 countries. They will include the top athletes in the sport. The event will be hard-fought, especially since the Rotterdam Worlds serve as a qualifier to the 2011 world championships.

The 2011 Worlds, to be held in Tokyo, Japan, will serve as the main qualifying competition for the 2012 Olympics. Fifty-three men’s teams will compete in Rotterdam, as well as 44 women’s teams. The 24 highest-ranking teams from both the men’s and women’s competitions will qualify to the 2011 Worlds, where they will have a shot at Olympic qualification. Therefore, it is vital that ambitious teams obtain a top-24 finish in Rotterdam. Needless to say, each team hopes to have its own cheer squad in Rotterdam, because as any athlete will tell you, having the crowd behind you is a massive advantage!

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., Sept. 14, 2010 – Kathy Feldmann, who has been involved in gymnastics for more than 40 years, is resigning as the vice president of member services for USA Gymnastics, effective Dec. 31, 2010. Feldmann joined the national staff as vice president in 1997 after serving as the national chairman for the women’s program for five years.

Get A Grip - GK Gymnastics Grips Help you Hang on Tight!

Gymnastics grips are a staple at the gym. Grips are worn on each hand when a gymnast performs on the uneven bars, rings or high bar to keep the hands from slipping. They have a strip of leather that covers the palm of a gymnast's hand, secured by a Velcro or buckle wrist strap at the bottom and by the gymnast's fingers at the top.

GK Offers a variety of grips for gymnasts, in both GK brands and Reisport. Also do not forget wristbands, which provide both support and a place to wipe sweat!. And be sure to invest is a grip bag, to keep any excess chalk away from the clothing in your bag. CLICK HERE to order GK Gymnastics Grips
