The Road to Rio has begun!

06 August 2015

For many athletes, The "Road to Rio" has started. With just one year to go, many athletes have already begun preparing for the qualification events, in order to grab a medal at the Rio Olympic Games in 2016.

The Gymnastics suppliers consortium will be sending out 170 gymnastics apparatuses to Rio for the Testing Event in April, and the Olympic Games in August 2016.

The size of the gymnastics podiums will cover the same area as the Cagarras archipelago just outside of the coast of Rio de Janeiro.
The height of all the mats that will be used, will be even higher than the Christ The Redeemer statue.
