Commonwealths dropping Gymnastics?

Update:

“@GraceClick believes they are not adding trampoline. But keeping the current Gymnastics disciplines.

Jennifer Isbister checked the official website, finding that Gymnastics is listed. The exact gymnastics disciplines to be included is not clear.

___ original post:

This is the first I’ve heard. :-(

New sports and capping of numbers are on the agenda of the Commonwealth Games Federation as it seeks to keep the Commonwealth Games relevant in tune with modern times.

With the programme for Gold Coast 2018 already locked and basketball set to replace gymnastics, the CGF general assembly, to be held next year in Auckland, will determine the new structure besides voting on the host city for the 2022 Games.

Durban (South Africa) and Edmonton (Canada) are in the fray for the 2022 Games, while Wales has hinted at the possibility of putting up a joint bid with Cardiff, Newport and Swansea to gain the right to host the 2026 Games. …

Changes ahead for the Games

She has a 6.8 start on FX.

Our next Beyond the Routine series features senior national team member Mykayla Skinner. Everyone who knows Mykayla describes her as a daredevil for her lack of fear and willingness to throw the big skills. While Mykayla has struggled with form, she has been working hard on her flexibility and it has paid off. Martha Karolyi is recognizing her as one of the best of Team USA and Mykayla is ready to prove that to the world.

minimum age for Olympics?

Age 16. Right?

Actually, no.

Not for MAG.

How do you justify a difference between the Olympic disciplines?

There should be no age restrictions for Olympic competitors.
