Gymnastics in Yemen


December 17-21, Yemen hosted the third of a series of FIG Age Group Programme training camps in the city of Sana’a… The training camp was for MAG only as Yemen does not formally train female gymnasts at this time.

The FIG expert for this camp was once again … Rick McCharles of Canada. … leader for this three-week three-country Age Group Programme Camp tour that featured the participation of 37 coaches from 14 different countries.

These camps are intended to expose as many coaches as possible from the host country to the FIG Age Group Programme so that it will be implemented and understood uniformly. …

GAAR ADAMS summed up the situation eloquently in an August 2012 article:

Inside a stuffy, ramshackle warehouse on the northern outskirts of Yemen’s capital, a dozen male gymnasts line up at the end of a tattered vaulting runway.

Pommel Horses and Protestors

Things are a little better now.

The gym is crammed with boys excited to do Gymnastics and the relatively new sport of Tricking.

The level of skill and technique on Pommels, Floor and Vault is surprisingly high. A number of the boys do good two and a half twist on Floor. Twisting forward and backward is strong. Many want to be the NEXT Nashwan.

Coach Jim Holt has some good stories on Nashwan’s incredible story. He identified the 10yr-old boy as “potential” back in 1996.
