Individual Apparatus 2018 World Cup Melbourne
The Australian leg of the International Gymnastics Federation’s (FIG) Individual Apparatus World Cup Series will be held in Melbourne’s world-renowned sporting precinct. Hisense Arena will host athletes from sixteen countries from February 22 to 25, with the Qualifications to be held over the first two days, and the top eight athletes on each apparatus advancing to the Finals, which will be held on the last two days. Australia won the right to host a stop on the Individual Apparatus World Cup circuit as part of the FIG’s new World Cup format for the 2017-2020 Olympic Cycle, and in 2017 Melbourne hosted the first event of this cycle.
This event will be one of the final stops on the Individual Apparatus World Cup circuit, which kicked off in November 2016 and will finish in March 2018. In this circuit, gymnasts are rewarded points based on where they finish on each apparatus at each stop. The points from each athlete’s best three finishes on a given apparatus will then be totalled to determine the World Cup series winner on that apparatus.
Australia will be the most heavily represented nation, boasting eleven athletes in the event. China have ten, including six on the men’s side of things, while Singapore have eight. Australia’s representation can be broken down into six athletes in the women’s side of the draw, and five on the men’s side. Georgia Godwin will be the busiest of the women, competing in the floor, the beam, and the vault. For the men, Christopher Remkes, Michael Mercieca, and Mitchell Morgans will all compete in three different disciplines as well.
