FIG to Overhaul Olympic Qualification
(2 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)

The FIG will completely overhaul its Olympic qualification system prior to the 2020 Olympics, FIG press director Philippe Silacci said Tuesday.

"The FIG will dramatically redesign its calendar and thereby its Olympic qualifications system," Silacci said.

The overhaul will not affect the current system in place to qualify to the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, but will reflect the changes in gymnastics over the past few years.

"To grow means to adapt its structures to new expectations and new requirements in order to face the future of the sport and of the Olympic movement. In other words, gymnastics must be proactive. This is exactly what the FIG Council will decide next week on May 9, at the occasion of its Council in Kuwait," he said.
