WHY wasn’t Kaylia Nemour at Worlds?

You probably saw her fantastic Bars routine from Arab Championships.

France wouldn’t let her compete for Algeria in Liverpool. Merde.

Click PLAY or watch it on YouTube.

This is Nina / Sunny level talent.

But she should switch to Straddle Cast handstands to avoid some angle deductions.

Kaylia Nemour was born in Saint-Benoît-la-Forêt, France on 30 December 2006 to a French mother and an Algerian father. …

Nemour became age-eligible for senior competition in 2022. Although her personal doctor cleared her to resume training, the French national team doctor was unwilling to do so.

As a result, Nemour opted to pursue changing her nationality to represent Algeria.

In July the International Gymnastics Federation approved the nationality change; however, because the French Gymnastics Federation blocked the request, Nemour will not be able to represent Algeria in FIG-sanctioned competitions (such as World Championships or African Championships) until July 2023.
