I swear Rotterdam hosts Worlds every quad?
1987, 2010 and 2026 for Rotterdam? Did I miss any other year?
I am looking forward to Lisbon… I would love to go to Portugal
Lisbon is hosting gymnaestrada, the amateur gymnastics festival, no worlds
You do have to feel a little bit sorry for gymnastic fans outside of Europe. They seem to get a worlds once in a blue moon. Which is great for us in Europe, being in a reasonable time zone and easy travel, but not so much for anyone else.
But then look at the number of participants from Europe v non Europe
Thats true, but there must be a lot of fans in USA, Asia and Australia (basing the last one on the packed CWG '18).
However, it is probably easier for places in Europe to sell out seats- as we saw with Doha, it’s sadly just not that popular some places.
Anaheim in 2003 was a huge crowd. And for that time the tickets were very expensive.
It really was! I was so excited, and had intended to go to at least one session, but the tickets were way out of my range.
i might even go to Rotterdam, 16 f#[email protected] years after i was there screaming for nabieva in tf, then screaming AT nabieva, baffling everyone around me
It’s wild that I’ve been to Stuttgart worlds twice and will hopefully go to Rotterdam worlds twice during my gym fandom. Europe really is spoiled.
I stayed in a youth hostel dorm for 2010 worlds. All but one person ended up being there for gymnastics so it was a lot of fun. I felt sorry for the lone Rotterdam tourist who had no idea what we were all on about most of the time.
