Host Cities for 2011, 2013 and 2015 Worlds

The host cities were decided or confirmed for the 2011, 2013 and 2015 World Championships this weekend.

The FIG decided to keep worlds in Japan, despite statements from some countries saying that they were not comfortable sending their gymnasts due to radiation. Because this is an Olympic qualifying event, I doubt anybody will actually stay at home.

Antwerp, Belgium will host the 2013 World Championships.

Paris, Orlando and Glasgow all bid for the 2015 World Championships, the qualifying competition for the 2016 Olympics. Glasgow ended up winning over Paris and Orlando. You can watch Glasgow’s bid video below.
