Jim Holt on FIG Worlds format

American coach Jim Holt has coached 14 World Championships, with 7 different nations (BAR, BOL, ECU, IND, IRI, NAM, YEM).

He knows as well as anyone the benefits of having developing nations compete at the highest level.

In this post, Jim responds to Hardy Fink’s recent article on the unintended negative consequences of FIG increasingly making it more difficult for new nations to compete at Worlds.

Jim agrees with Hardy and adds specific examples from the past.
