Compete online with other gymnasts

Online Competitions

The global COVID-19 pandemic has affected gymnasts, coaches, judges and many other sports enthusiasts around the world.

Sports facilities have been closed, competitions have had to be postponed or cancelled, and there have been few or no opportunities for gymnasts to compete. Our new concept of IRV Online Competitions will not replace on-site events like the IRV World Championships, but we hope they will provide motivation for gymnasts and judges and give them a goal for their daily training sessions. The online events can be used to measure improvement from one competition to the next and we all know how useful it is to receive feedback on routines.

We are proud to announce the new IRV Online Competitions format – a 100% digital competitive arena for Wheel Gymnastics
