Welcome to Izmir!

By Suat Celen, President of the Turkish Gymnastics Federation


Izmir 2014


Dear Rhythmic Gymnastics Family,


This coming September we will be honoured to host you in pretty Izmir, the cradle of civilisation, the Pearl of the Aegean, which the great Victor Hugo named “Princess,” for the World Rhythmic Gymnastics Championships.


We have begun preparing to welcome the world’s best Rhythmic gymnasts, and will work hard to provide them with ideal conditions that will allow all to give performances of the highest calibre, in a comfortable atmosphere. You already have the best wishes of Turkey, the Turkish Gymnastics Federation and the hospitable Turkish people, and we wish you all a happy and healthy period of preparation.


With the desire that Izmir is a championship that demonstrates worldwide friendship and shows the very best of our sport to the world.
