Jr Worlds 2019 – DETAILS

Finally. There’s an official website – jwchgyor2019.hu

GYŐR, Hungary will host the first World Jr Championships 27th-30th June, 2019.

Invited are those nations who qualified a gymnast to the 2018 Youth Olympics.

WAG – born in 2004 or 2005

MAG – born in 2002 or 2003

The competition format is 3-3-2, so there will be three gymnasts per team, all competing AA and 2 scores on each event count towards the team total.

The first round of competition will be qualifications, which also counts as the Team and AA finals, like it did at Jr Euros last year, and then there will be two days of event finals.

Weirdly though, for gymnasts to qualify into any event finals they must compete all 6 events in qualifications. I have no idea why on earth that’s a rule here, but it is.
