FIG Challenge garners support

Lausanne (SUI) / FIG Office, October 22, 2010: The South African Gymnastics Federation (SAGF), organiser of the second edition of the Gym For Life Challenge in 2013, has just received word that Mr Sam Ramsamy of South Africa, IOC Member and Chairman of the International Olympic Committee’s Sport for All Commission, stands in support of the event.

In a letter addressed to Jerry Masia, the SAGF President, Mr Ramsamy confirms having accepted the honour of presiding over the event’s Patronage Committee, and reiterated the IOC’s interest in this major FIG calendar event.

Cape Town (RSA) is thus the host city of the second edition of the International Gymnastics Federation’s Gym for Life Challenge, an event open to Gymnastics For All clubs the world over. Held in Dornbirn (AUT), the premiere edition crowned the Pirouett Club of Tallin (EST) winner of the event and holder of the Grandi Trophy.
A world championship for clubs, it owes its name to FIG President Prof. Bruno Grandi, whose commitment to Gymnastics For All has been a constant priority and source of concern throughout his gymnastic career
