4th World Gym for Life Challenge

Start: July 13, 2021
End: July 17, 2021

Join Gymnastics Canada and the Canadian Delegation as we prepare for the 4th World Gym for Life Challenge in Lisbon, Portugal from July 13-17, 2021!

The WGFLC is an international contest for gymnastics groups. It is a Gymnastics for All event sanctioned by the FIG every four years and offers groups the opportunity to participate in a contest in which their performance is evaluated.

Performances are evaluated and assigned a total score based on the following criteria:

  • Entertainment value
  • Innovation, originality and variety
  • Technique, quality and safety
  • Overall impression

In each category a ranking list is created using the total score awarded to each group. The ranking list is used to determine the Gold, Silver and Bronze awards. Every gymnast receives a medal according to their group’s award level (Gold, Silver, Bronze).

Gold is awarded to the groups with the highest scores. Silver and Bronze awards are divided equally among the remaining groups. The medals are presented in starting order and following the awards, groups are offered the chance to meet with an expert evaluator for a feedback session.

All groups awarded Gold will participate in the World Gym for Life Gala.

Groups are also given the opportunity to perform a “Show Performance” on a city stage during the WGFLC.
