The FIG wants to ensure stronger ties with the continental unions and support their development. In 2018, a development officer for Africa was named to address Africa’s peculiar challenges and to help accelerate the development of Gymnastics in Africa.

The developmental work focuses on a number of areas. These include:

  • providing support to developing federations in their efforts to getting Gymnastics established in their countries;
  • improving the knowledge, skills and capacity of coaches, officials, leaders and administrators;
  • and ultimately increasing the number of people involved in Gymnastics.

The development officer works with existing structures in the FIG and the continental union, whose combined efforts will help grow, improve and make Gymnastics safer.
