Championships & Schedule - Artistic Gymnastics 2021

Championships & Schedule

Due to the covid-19 situation, the Danish Gymnastics Federation has decided to withdraw from hosting the championships in 2021 – please find more information on the International Gymnastics Federation website


For two weeks Royal Arena in Copenhagen will be home to Olympic gymnasts, international world stars, and spectators from all over the world. Many consider artistic gymnastics to be the finest discipline in gymnastics, as well as one of the biggest disciplines on the Olympic programme in terms of spectators and viewers at home. Thus, spectators should be looking forward to world-class gymnastics in a modern and impressive arena.

President of the Danish Gymnastics Federation, Anders Jacobsen about the hosting: ”It’s a great achievement to be awarded the 50th Artistic Gymnastics World Championships. Not just for the Federation, but for Danish gymnastics as a whole. An event of this format fits very well into the course and development we have for gymnastics in Denmark. I’m sure many of our nearly 200,000 members – and the rest of Denmark – will have a gymnastics experience for life when we host the Artistic Gymnastics World Championships in 2021 together with Sport Event Denmark and the city of Copenhagen.”
