Nominative Roster Set for Cottbus, First FIG Competition in the 2024 Quad

Artem Dolgopyat

The FIG released the nominative roster for the Cottbus world cup, which will mark the first major international competition of the new quad and will serve as a qualifier for this year’s world championships.

Yes, beginning in 2022, athletes and nations will need to qualify to world championships, and can do so via both continental championships and the apparatus world cup series. At the end of the series, the eight highest-ranked eligible gymnasts per apparatus without a team qualified and who haven’t already qualified via the all-around will qualify to worlds by name, with a maximum of two gymnasts per country per apparatus. The ranking is based on the top three highest scores in the four-meet series, which after Cottbus includes world cups in Doha, Cairo, and Baku.

The same messy points system that determined Olympic qualification in 2020 will now also be used for worlds this quad. With continental championships serving as the primary qualifier for worlds, yet happening after the world cup series concludes, it means those who are ranked via the apparatus world cups but who later qualify through the all-around or on a team that qualifies will have their points reallocated to the next-eligible gymnasts. Here we go again!

So Cottbus is where this system kicks off, and we should expect to see over a hundred gymnasts attempting the first stage of worlds qualification, including 2020 Olympic men’s floor champion Artem Dolgopyat of Israel and 2021 world pommel horse champion Stephen Nedoroscik of the United States.

The competition will begin with qualifications on February 24, and should be available to watch on the Olympic Channel. A full list of all competitors who have registered is below.

    • She was originally planning on it but just broke a bone in her foot the other day so she’s likely going to have to withdraw. She said on IG that she wasn’t sure of the timing for returning, but I’d guess it wouldn’t be soon enough to compete internationally in the next month.

      • Yeah, I was going to ask this. I’m 99% sure she won’t be there (can the universe give her a break!), so I wonder if GB will send anyone else. There are a bunch of people who could use some experience, so I hope so!

        • (in reply to comment below, but can’t directly reply): especially since they need to have multiple gymnasts in the summer for both CWG and Euros. Obviously people like Alice, Jessica and Jennifer, Becky, Kelly Simm etc will have that experience, but once you get to the younger team members, I don’t think many of them will have competed even as juniors. And with CWG and Euros so close, England as a national team may not be able to rely on the GB squad members for their team as much either. I assume GB will prioritise Euros as it’s a world qualifier.

    • Honestly…they were like remember how confusing the Olympic qualifying system was and how athletes had to wait forever to find out what was going on? Let’s do that EVERY SINGLE YEAR next quad.
