Gymnastics in Tromsø, Norway

On holidays, I happened to cycle past the Artistic Gym in the tourist town of Tromsø.

And popped in to check the facility. It’s impressive for a city population 80,000.

The new Tromsø facility was only opened 2018. But coaches told me many new facilities have been built throughout the nation.

Tromsø is fully equipped for WAG, MAG and Rhythmic. They also offer Team Gym training.

Training was limited during the pandemic — but not as much as in many other places in the world. Everything is back to normal now.

Michelle in the comments notes that these are actually not the official teamgymnastics mats. In competition the mats are harder.

TeamGym European Championships begin

11th European TeamGym Championships Maribor, Slovenia 12-15 October 2016.

At the last TeamGym Europeans, in Reykjavik (ISL) in 2014, the Danish delegation impressively clinched 5 European titles, leaving only the senior women’s title to Sweden. Can Denmark repeat this feat? They are certainly aiming for another spectacular performance but face tough competition in Maribor’s Lukna Sports Hall. …

All teams compete on three events: Floor, Tumbling and Trampet. The combined score determines the finalists, the top 6 advance to the final. In the final scores start from zero. The team with the highest combined score becomes European Champion!

Teams will compete in 5 categories: junior women’s and mixed team, senior women’s, men’s and mixed team. For the junior men’s teams there will not be an official European champion as not enough teams registered. …
