World Championship Gymnastics 16/10/2010 - 24/10/2010
2010 was a very special year for the Royal Dutch gymnastics federation. The Netherlands could organize the World Championships Gymnastics for the second time in history.
It was an honor but also a great challenge because no less than 68 countries had registered for the World Championship. Therefore the 2010 World Cup was the largest international gymnastics tournament ever in the Netherlands. Located in the renovated Ahoy in Rotterdam.
The Royal Dutch gymnastics federation and everyone who was involved in the event can feel proud to look back on the tournament. 45,000 visitors enjoyed the matches and of the dozens side events. The whole World Championship was broadcasted live over the internet, 436 journalists from over 30 countries have reported and there were TV images to see of the finals in 110 countries. The final days were all sold out. In total 1342 participants and facilitators came to the World Gymnastics 2010 in Rotterdam.
The vibe in the halls of the Ahoy complex was amazing during the nine-day tournament. Children were able to exercise themselves and trainers, coaches and board members could participate in clinics and in workshops. There were special thematic meetings and seminars and of course there were also merchandising items for sale, so anyone could go home with a tangible reminder.
'Fantastic Gymnastics' was the motto of the World Championships and fantastic it was; the mood of the fans in the stands, the breathtaking calisthenics, the voltage during the competition days and of course that great stretch final.
