* fig -press--: The FIG welcomes the decision of the International World Games Association (IWGA) to hold The World Games in Birmingham, United States, in July 2022 instead of 2021. Following the postponement of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, the IWGA and the Birmingham Organising Committee have agreed to reschedule the 11th edition of The World Games, which will now take place from 07 to 17 July 2022. WORLD GAMES 2022
The FIG fully supports this decision, especially since The World Games is the most significant multi-sport event for the athletes of the Gymnastics disciplines which are not part of the Olympic programme.
This one-year postponement will give the FIG the time necessary to find new solutions for the holding of the qualifying events for The World Games in those disciplines, since the 2020 World Championships have also had to be postponed.
