  • Visitor Information

Gymnasts from around 60 different nations are due to take part in the seven day Visa International Gymnastics, the last chance for gymnasts to qualify for the London 2012 Games. Gymnasts will compete in all three disciplines: Artistic, Trampoline and Rhythmic Gymnastics. The men's Artistic Gymnastics covers six pieces of apparatus: floor, pommel horse, rings, vault, parallel bars and high bar while women only compete in the Rhythmic Gymnastics performing to music using a rope, hoop, ball, clubs or ribbon. Reigning rhythmic gymnast champion, Russian Evgenia Kanaeva (who won individual gold in the 2008 Olympics and swept the boards at the qualifiers in Montpelier in September 2011), is among the world-class gymnasts who will be performing at this event. If you haven't managed to secure tickets to the Olympics this test event, part of the London Prepares series, is an important qualifier which offers sports fans another chance to get close to the action. The venue, the North Greenwich Arena (also known as The O2), hosts the artistic gymnastics, trampoline events and the basketball finals during the 2012 Olympic Games as well as the wheelchair basketball during the Paralympic Games a few weeks later.
