First of two 2022 Acrobatic World Cup in Maia / Portugal

Seven newly crowned World champions  will be back in action at the Acrobatic Gymnastics World Cup in Maia (POR) 13-15 May, the first of a pair of Acrobatic World Cups scheduled this year. Triumphant at the 2022 World Championships in Baku (AZE) in March, Women’s Pair Rita Ferreira and Rita Teixeira (POR) are the host nation’s headliners at the annual World Cup event, held just outside of Porto and hosted by the city’s Acro Clube da Maia where both train. Ferreira and Teixeira made history by capturing Portugal’s first World title in Acrobatic Gymnastics in 2021, then going on to sweep the Women’s Pair titles in Baku.
The event in Maia will be followed by a second World Cup scheduled 3-5 June in Rzeszow (POL). The global health crisis has limited World Cup competition in Acrobatic Gymnastics, with Maia only the second World Cup event since March 2020. But Acrobatic Gymnastics fans have plenty to look forward to: Acro will be a starring discipline at The World Games 2022 in Birmingham (USA) in July.
