Juniors to perform in trampoline gymnastics

The 12th Junior Artistic and Trampoline Gymnastics Asian Championships will be held in Suphanburi Province of Thailand on March 11-15.

As many as 18 countries have confirmed their participation in the tournament. The 348 individual participants were unexpected, forcing the organisers to change the location of the competition hall and the hotel.

Many of the participants promote the sport of gymnastics and their full confidence in the Asian Gymnastics Union, which defied all odds and proved its intention to raise the level of gymnastics across the whole continent.

Viet Nam will take part in the all boys and all girls artistic and trampoline categories against powerhouses such as Japan, China, South Korea and Singapore.-VNS
