MOSCOW, July 27 – The Congress of the International Gymnastics Federation (FIG) will not be able to take place in Sandefjord (Norway) in October, as the country’s gymnastics federation was unable to organize the event due to requirements from the Olympic Committee and the Norwegian Ministry of Culture not to invite representatives of Russia and Belarus to events in the country .
“FIG is working to find another National Federation to host the 2022 Congress. The FIG will announce the new location and dates as soon as they are approved by the Executive Committee,” reads a message on the official FIG website.
In March, all Russian athletes were suspended by FIG from competitions under its auspices due to the situation in Ukraine.
