Message from the President and the CEO
Welcome to the official website of the 2017 FIG Artistic Gymnastics World Championships. This is your one-stop source for any questions you may have about the Championships. The #MTL2017GYM site is the fruit of many hours of planning and preparation. We hope our hard work can match the standards of the world’s best gymnasts bringing their amazing talent to Montreal from October 2 to 8, 2017.
- Come join us in 2017 to welcome the international artistic gymnastics elite to Montreal’s Olympic Stadium.
- Follow the action as we prepare for the Championships, held in conjunction with Montreal’s 375th anniversary and the 150th anniversary of Canada’s Confederation.
- Discover the diverse facets of Montreal and Quebec: unique, historic and spectacular.
Partners from multiple levels of government and the private sector, the organizing committee and hundreds of volunteers have come together to pay tribute to today’s athletes. Just like Nadia Comaneci, queen of the 1976 Olympic Games, these amazing individuals represent the pinnacle of gymnastics excellence. Let’s extend the timeline of athletic achievement as Montreal plays host to the world’s top gymnasts in 2017.
We’d like to thank the Fédération Internationale de Gymnastique (FIG), Gymnastics Canada, Gymnastique Québec and all our partners, who believed in Montreal right from the start of this amazing adventure. Your undying trust and support have made it possible for us to open our arms to both the international gymnastics community and spectators from around the globe, right here in Montreal.
Yours in sport,
Richard Crépin, President
Jean-Paul Caron, CEO
