Wheels go Brazil - Wheel gymnastics tournament in Campinas/Sao Paulo

From August 21 to September 4 14 Wheel gymnasts afrom Germany took part in the 4th Forum Internacional Gymnastic Geral in Campinas (Brazil) an event which is organized every two years by the University of Campinas/Sao Paulo (UNICAMP).
There were workshops for interested club coaches, sports students and sports teachers from Brazil, but also from other South American countries. In the three hour sessions the basics of wheel gymnastics were taught both theoretically and especially practically. In addition, various individual and group performances were part of the programme.

Lots of participants for the hands-on events...

Auch die Kleinsten mochten die deutschen Freunde...

In 2001, a German wheel gymnastics group first took part in the 1st Forum in Brazil. Since then, a wheel gymnastics group has been formed at the University of Campinas, with which intensive training was possible.

>> Meanwhile the first wheels „made in Brazil“ are being produced, and this is sure to be good for the spread of wheel gymnastics in Brazil.
