'BLUME GRAN CANARIA' improves the gymnastics expectations in 2014

The 54th edition of the unique Festival "BLUME Gran Canaria 2014" in memoriam of the unforgettable Spanish folk heroe Joaquin BLUME is now already history.

This year was completed by a considerable improvement of gymnasts from the islands of the Canarian Archipel and the foreign teams. More than 1.350 gymnasts from abroud were visiting one of the 35 events of Gymnastics for All. And again it was a continuation of continuous flexible adaptation to the modern sports development in our fast-paced time, as the Spanish chief organizer Jesus Telo Rodriguez estimates in its balance sheet ...:

The following facts prove that we try to put new signs of the development of modern sport:

Five international Tournaments in Rhythmic, Artistic, Aerobic Gymnastics, in
TeamGym and Judo with an increment of foreign countries underlines the claims of our youth for challenging their capacities and combining their participation in several indoor and outdoor stages along the island of Gran Canaria.
More than 500 participants from 9 different countries in the important 50-plus segment enjoyed within the 25 different international workshops leaded by instructors from 12 nations. Again the combination of nature at the beaches from Maspalomas during the winter period in Europe or walking options in beautiful corners of Gran Canaria has confirmed the objectives of gymnastics and social networking.
With the participation of 5 disabilities gymnastics clubs we have run the session for special Gymnastics, that we define as "Equal Opportunities", discovering the diversity and intensity that the gymnasts express through this channel of communication: BLUME GRAN CANARIA.
Our special thanks to our Canarian and international helpers, volonteers and workshop leaders for their great commitment and skilled labor at these successfully Blume days 2014!
