World Gymnaestrada 2019 to host record number of nations

* The 16th FIG World Gymnaestrada started in Dornbirn, Austria and already the 2019 edition has reached a new landmark with a record 62 nations set to take part.
In the 66-year history of the World Gymnaestrada, the current high watermark is 55 nations at the Lausanne 2011 edition, while 53 was the figure when Dornbirn hosted the event previously in 2007 -  but due to bad weather, the opening ceremony had to be postponed from Sunday to Wednesday, July 10th...!
This year, though, Dornbirn and the neighbouring towns of the Vorarlberg region welcomed gymnasts from 60 different countries who will descend on this picturesque corner of Austria for seven days in July.
After the closing ceremony on Saturday, July 13 the Gymnaestrada is history now!  full of unforgettable moments, emotions, colours, friendship and for sure out-of-this world gymnastics of all kinds all are looking forward to 2023 in Amsterdam to the 17th anniversary of such a big and culturfull event ...
