With NCGA gymnasts competing at championships this weekend and other parts of the gymnastics world heating up, FloGymnastics has many competitions this weekend for you to enjoy. Here are the four big competitions we are streaming this weekend—try not to get whiplash attempting to watch them all!
For PRO users located in Canada, the 2019 DOHA Apparatus World Cup is sure to be exciting. Part of the 2019 FIG Artistic Gymnastics World Cup Series, Doha comes after stops in Melbourne, Greensboro, Baku and Stuttgart earlier this year for both men’s and women’s senior competitors. Gymnasts in attendance will include Jade Cary of Team USA, who won gold medals in vault and floor at the AGF Trophy world cup event in Baku, Azerbaijan, earlier this month.
The best teams from the National Collegiate Gymnastics Association (NCGA) will compete at the 2019 NCGA National Championships this weekend in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Coming to the Kolf Sports Center will be three teams from the East Region and three teams from the West, each which placed top three in the regional championships.
The West Region is bringing UW-Stout, which placed first; UW-Oshkosh, which placed second but has a good chance of doing well as they are hosting; and UW-Whitewater, which placed third at regionals but historically shines at nationals. The East boasts Brockport, Ithaca and Cortland.
There is also an individual competition where student-athletes who qualified on their own will compete. Gustavus Adolphus has Amanda Malo, Samantha Ardy and Brooke Merila competing in the all-around for the West, and in the East, Springfield is sending Jess Clemens, while Allie DiBiase and Miranda Murphy will represent Rhode Island College in the all-around.
Men’s gymnastics hits the FloGymnastics spotlight this weekend, when Penn State and Iowa compete at Minnesota, starting at 2 p.m. CT. Penn State men’s gymnastics is 6-1 overall this season, coming in strong to this competition and boasting a 407.800 at their most recent meet. Iowa has won its last three meets after a bit of a tough start to the season, and Minnesota is generally a top team. Tune in this weekend to see these three teams in a tri meet hosted by the Golden Gophers, the final competition for each of the teams before Big Ten Championships next week.
The 2019 Birmingham World Cup is also this weekend, livestreamed on FloGymnastics on Saturday. Nine female and nine male gymnasts from eight different countries plan to compete in this leg of the FIG World Cup Series, the same weekend as the Doha World Cup. This event will be located at Birmingham’s Genting Arena and these eight nations will continue to compete to be crowned as a World Cup winner.
No matter what you choose to watch this weekend, there is plenty of great gymnastics to be seen this weekend!
