Due to the situation in the City of Bangkok (THA) last December and its effect on the Suvarnabhumi International Airport, the first Asian Aerobic Gymnastics Championships were postponed. The Asian Aerobic Technical Committee and the local Organizing Committee met together and have fixed the new competitions' dates on March 27 - 29, 2009.
The host Federation, the Gymnastic Association of Thailand, will welcome gymnasts from senior and age groups categories (12 - 14 and 15 - 17 years old). The competitions will be held on the stage of the Fashion Island Hall in Bangkok.
Aerobic Gymnastics is not widespread in the whole Asian Continent. Hosting for the first time this event in Bangkok is a big occasion to promote and develop this discipline among the Asian territories. This first continental event will be for the gymnasts and the participating federations an unique opportunity to select those athletes who will attend the 8th World Games to be hosted in Kaohsiung (TPE), in July 2009.
