Competitive high-level gymnastics is more than an Olympic Games phenomenon. See all the incredible flips, twists and floor routines you can cheer for as Montréal hosts the International Gymnix competition this March.
Now in its 26th year, International Gymnix brings the best female gymnasts in the world to Montréal’s Claude-Robillard Sports Complex, March 9 to 12. Over 100 Olympians and more top athletes will go for the gold in senior and junior, contending in unique team and individual competitions.
International Gymnix is an important step on the way to the Olympics, so it’s no surprise that a who’s who of gymnasts have passed through International Gymnix over the years. The competition’s Hall of Fame tells the tale of Olympic gold medalists and world champions, while the competition itself heralds future champions from Canada, the U.S., , Brazil, Japan, Romania, Russia and several more countries.
Notably, the Claude-Robillard Sports Complex host venue is also long-time home to competitive gymnastics training ground Club Gymnix. For that matter, Montréal’s famed Olympic Stadium has its own gymnastics tales too, including that of 14-year-old Nadia Comăneci: she scored the world’ first perfect 10 in gymnastics at the stadium’s inaugural Summer Olympics 1976.
Watch the gymnastic future unfold on the vault, bars, beam and on the floor at this year’s International Gymnix as a variety of impressive competitions for all ages and categories amaze spectators over the four days of the event. The Senior and Junior Cups involve the top countries in the world competing in intense team competitions, inspiring younger athletes and even hosting the oldest athlete of the international circuit, Oksana Chusovitina (41 years old).
