40th World Championships, Stuttgart, Germany
1-9 September 2007

The Championships is of vital importance since it will also serve as Olympic 2008 Qualifications. Out of the 24 Men’s and 24 Women’s Teams who passed successfully through last year’s first round of the Qualifications, only the top 12 will receive visas for Beijing. (GB women’s Team ranked 11th out of 33 teams in Aarhus, Denmark 2006 and GB Men’s Team- 19th, out of 43 teams)

British Gymnastics wishes success to all our gymnasts in what is expected to be the toughest and closest competition ever seen in this sport.
