IRV World Championships WHeel Gymnastics 2018

to May 13

IRV World Championships WHeel Gymnastics 2018

"Gruezi" to Switzerland

2018 will see a return to Europe, more specifically to the beautiful village of Magglingen in the Swiss Canton of Bern. The 13th World Championships in Gym Wheel and the 4th World Championships in Cyr Wheel will take place from 6-13 May 2018 at a height of up to 1000 metres above sea level.

Magglingen is linked by funicular railway to the city of Biel, approximately 30 minutes away from the Swiss capital, Bern. The Swiss national sports federation (BASPO) is based in Magglingen, with views over Lake Biel and an Alpine panorama landscape. It has accommodation for up to 200 people and a range of modern sports facilities. The sports hall Sport-Toto-Halle will be the venue for the World Championships at the beginning of May 2018 (in the week of Ascension Day) and has space for up to 400 spectators. There are enough hotels, camp sites and other options for overnight accommodation in the area, so it should be easy to combine a relaxing holiday with a visit to the world championships.

After our previous events in Switzerland – including the World Championships 2009 and Team World Cup 2012 in Baar – we are very happy to be returning to the home country of the IRV. The many unforgettable moments of the 2009 World Championships are still fresh in our memories and we look forward to Magglingen 2018!

Henning Henningsen
President of the IRV
