FIG AA World Cup Series cancelled

The series was made up of four events – in Milwaukee (USA), Stuttgart (GER), Birmingham (GBR) and Tokyo (JPN) – originally intended to take place between March and April 2020. …

The World Cup in Tokyo on 4 May, which serves as a test event for the Games in Artistic Gymnastics, remains unaffected for the moment. …

According to the rules, the unused places go to the highest-ranked countries in the team ranking results of the qualifications at the 2019 World Championships.
The following countries, therefore, obtain an additional non-nominative berth for Tokyo 2020:

  • Men’s Artistic Gymnastics: Russia, China and Japan.
  • Women’s Artistic Gymnastics: USA, China and Russia.

To date, 82 places out of 98 in Men’s Artistic and 84 out of 98 in Women’s Artistic have already been allocated.

The remaining places at stake will be allocated through the Apparatus World Cup Series (the final stage of which is scheduled for 10–13 March in Doha, (QAT)) and the continental championships.
