2015 World Gymnaestrada
Every 4 years, a world Gymnaestrada for Recreational Gymnastics is held. It is the largest sporting event in the world, with more participants than the Olympics!
Last cycle the event was held in Helsinki, Finland in July, 2015. Our group of dedicated gymnasts and coaches worked hard to make it a reality. Between VRG supporters, gymnasts, coaches, parents and siblings and our collaborators, fellow performers and friends from South Caribou Rhythmic Gymnastics Club, our team was about 23 people.
