The Jamaica Gymnastics Association will act as hosts of the International Gymnastics Federation’s (FIG) Technical Committee meetings scheduled to be held at the Oceans Coral Springs Hotel in Falmouth, Jamaica from November 25-29.

The FIG Technical Committee has the responsibility of setting all code of points and the technical direction of Artistic Gymnastics.

According to the JGA President, Nicole Grant, that the FIG selected Jamaica to hosts these very important meetings is an indicator of the JGA’s growing stature within the sport and she sees it as a major milestone.

“We are super excited that the Ministry of Tourism and the Jamaica Tourist Board as well as Elite Diagnostics for coming on board at such short notice to make this possible for us,” said JGA President Nicole Grant. 

“We are also pleased that the Pan American Gymnastics Union president Naomi Valenzzo will also be visiting Jamaica during the Technical Committee meetings. She was very instrumental in getting the FIG to donate much needed equipment last month.

“We are even more excited that the President (Donatella Sacchi) and Vice President (Nehad Zayed) of the FIG Technical Committee have decided to arrive two days early to see our National Junior elites who are currently preparing for the PAGU Youth Tournament in Columbia from December 2-16, 2022.”

Grant revealed that the officials will be also meeting members of the JGA board as well as judging the national juniors in pre-competition on Thursday November 24 at the Jamaica School of Gymnastics on Slipe Road in Kingston.
