Although Gotland has not competed in gymnastics as part of the NatWest Island Games, the sport is popular on the island. The largest club has more than 400 members, over 100 of which are aged between 7 and 20.
By far the biggest team gymnastics competition held on Gotland is the Wisby Cup, which last year attracted 39 teams and 500 competitors from across the country. This year the Wisby Cup’s eighth event is planned.
The Gotland Gymnastics Association recently started to train a small group in women artistic gymnastic and that makes it the second one on the island. Since Gotland works very closely with Stockholm in gymnastics, partnership will also be a feature of the 2017 Games. Gotland and Stockholm will be joint organisers and Stockholm will help by providing judges and equipment. Getting to host the Games on Gotland in 2017 would mean a great deal for artistic gymnastics on Gotland.
