For 8 days in July 2013, Cape Town will host the first international Gymnastics For All event in Africa where groups from all over the world will participate in the contest in their quest to be crowned World Champion.
This is only the second edition of the event which was introduced to compliment the FIG’s World Gymnaestrada by being held every four years in-between the World Gymnaestradas.
Gymnastics for All activities contribute to personal health, fitness and well being – physical, social, intellectual and psychological. The focus of GfA is the F4 (Fun – Fitness - Fundamentals - Friendship) and can involve gymnastics with or without apparatus, gymnastics and dance. It offers aesthetic experiences in movement for participants and spectators while providing the opportunity to focus on items that are of particular interest in a national and cultural context.
