Budapest will host the 19th world championships in aesthetic group gymnastics from June 8 to 10.
The event is expected to attract a record number of participants, Tatiana Miroshnychenko, the Spanish president of the international federation IFAGG, told a press conference on Wednesday.
So far 118 teams from nearly 30 countries – nearly 1,500 gymnasts – have entered the competition, she said.
In keeping with tradition, the biggest number of competitors are expected to arrive from Russia and Finland, Miroshnychenko said.
Fo that matter, Budapest continues to host prestigious events this year: first, it will be home to the FINA Artistic Swimming World Series in May to then welcome the contestants of the 2018 World Junior Artistic Swimming Championships between the 18th and 22nd of July.
