On behalf of Turkish Gymnastics Family, Personally, I am delighted to welcome each of you to the Artistic Gymnastics World Challenge Cup Mersin 2016. Mersin has been selected as the host city for 2015 World Challenge Cup series. It’s an exciting time for Turkish Gymnastics Federation, bringing the Artistic Gymnastics World Challenge Cup to Turkey for the very first time.

Mersin has a relationship with Gymnastics, staging its first ever 17th Mediterranean Games in 2013. Seventeen nations performed for Artistic Gymnastics competitions: sixteen in men’s competitions and eleven in women’s competitions.

As being the last World Challenge Cup in Artistic Gymnastics approximately one month before RIO 2016 Olympic Games, importance of the Mersin 2016 has been increasing.

It is sure that, for all of us, the World of Gymnastics is an addictive area in sports. That is why we’ll continue to organize World Challenge Cups in following years.

We are much looking forward to welcoming you in Mersin.

With our best regards,

President of the Turkish Gymnastics Federation
