With six of the ten titles, host country Turkey dominated the FIG World Challenge Cup in Artistic Gymnastics in Mersin, held 6-8 July. Turkish gymnasts won 13 medals overall, including three of the four women's events, at the Mersin Gymnastics Hall. The competition continues Turkey's streak of success in the sport following last year's historic world championships in Montreal, where two gymnasts made apparatus finals, and record results at the recent Mediterranean Games in Spain, where the Turkish men won the team silver and Ibrahi̇m Colak and Ahmet Onder won individual gold medals.

WOMEN --: Dipa Karmakar, the only Indian gymnast to make a world and Olympic final, made a successful comeback after nearly two years by winning the gold medal on Women’s Vault. Karmakar, 24, suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament after the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, where she placed a historic fourth on Vault. In Mersin, she opted not to attempt the risky handspring double-front she competed in Rio, instead performing a McIntosh (handspring layout front full) and double-twisting Tsukahara to average 14.150. Indonesia’s Rifda Irfanaluthfi won the silver, her first World Challenge Cup medal, over Turkey’s Goksu Uctas Sanli.
