With World Championship team announcements coming in by the minute, The Gymternet has decided to organize them all in an effort to make it easier to share information! We’ll list the teams as well as the nations who have something in the works – i.e. whether it’s a training camp or a provisional team, and then at the bottom, we’ll list the nations confirmed to attend that may have an obvious gymnast or two we should expect to compete but who haven’t been forthcoming with information. Have something to add or change? Let us know!

    • Individual country…if they can’t field a full team, for example, or if they can’t afford to send more than a couple. I’d say more to do with the money aspect because some countries will send full teams at a weaker level than other countries sending just one or two. Like, a country could have six gymnasts performing the equivalent to level 7 routines whereas another country could be bringing one or two high caliber elites but leaving home girls who won’t make a final but who might have level 8 or level 9 routines. I know some countries only pay for their top girls but then let a full team go if the others can pay their own way. I hope this makes sense!

  1. Heh, I remember seeing earlier in the year that Azerbaijan wanted to register five, but they only have four senior gymnasts. Don’t know if they plan to send all four and try to compete as a team because it means all of them would have to compete AA and all their scores would count. But as of now I don’t know if that’s their plan or they don’t care about the team results.

      • Indeed. I keep checking for news on their team like every other day. I don’t think they’re going to finalize until after that Istanbul meet coming up because I know they’re going to that. The entire WAG and MAG teams are going.

  2. Thank you so much for the update on Maggie Nichol’s knee. It was heartbreaking to see her limp out of her final floor pass at Pan Ams. With her hard work, leadership and tremendous consistency I really hope she recovers quickly and gets a shot at the worlds team!

    • No problem! I was very happy to hear it this morning. It seems like other non-gymnasts who have had this happen were able to be pain-free within less than three weeks, so I would imagine she should feel better just in time for the camp with the right care.

  5. The South African Gymnastics Federation has announced the following gymnasts will be going to worlds:

    Claudia Cummins
    Bianca Mann
    Angela Macguire
    Tylah Lotter

    Unfortunately they say Kirsten Beckett is out with an injury. No word so far on who will be filling the last two places, but they don’t really have a lot of options. They only had six seniors competing at this level at nationals and that included Kirsten.

  6. Saw on Twitter that Ferlito’s out. Her list of what’s been wrong with her health sounds incredibly unpleasant. Mono, toxoplasmosis, something about strep and tonsils, anemia…that’s got to be painful.
