Grand Prix Thiais 2022 is cancelled

Grand Prix Thiais is already a historic tournament in gymnastics tradition for more than twenty years.

This Grand Prix series competition is held in Thiais, close to Paris (France).

Last year, the situation of the Coronavirus virus – COVID 19 in France leaded the Organizing Committee to cancel the 34th edition of the Internationaux de Thiais in view of the risks that this could cause the foreign delegations taking part and the public many who attend the event.

This year, the organizing Committe and GP director, Jose de Freitas, decided to cancel 2022 edition because of the health risks:

Until the last few days, the Organizing Committee of the Internationaux de Thiais (COMSE) has worked to ensure that the 34th edition of the Internationaux de Thiais, postponed for two years, is held at the end of March.

Until the end, we hoped that the health situation, which had begun to improve in recent months, would stabilize or even progress favorably.

Unfortunately, the indicators we have are not the most optimistic.

Inescapable constraints weigh on the organization of our tournament due to the circulation of the virus. We cannot reasonably commit ourselves to ensuring that the Grand Prix takes place as the uncertainties are numerous and the necessary adaptations strong.

Dina Averina (RUS)

Unanimously of its members, the Organizing Committee has therefore decided to postpone the organization of the Thiais Grand Prix to 2023.

Aware of the disappointment that our decision may cause for the loyal public and all foreign delegations, we could not decently do otherwise.

This decision, which is difficult to make, is in our opinion the most reasonable possible so that we can come-back soon, faster and stronger.

Viktoriia Onopriienko (UKR)

We hope that next year, this pandemic will be no more than a bad and distant memory and that you will once again place your trust in us by coming to attend this magnificent high-level competition.

Versión en español

El equipo ruso era hoy una de las grandes expectaciones de la jornada. Todo el equipo estuvo en Thiais. En individuales: Margarita Mamun, Darya Svatkovskaya, Maria Titova y Alexandra Merkulova.  Conjunto: Anastasiya Nazarenko, Anastasiya Maximova, Olga Ilina, Alina Makarenko y Kseniya Dudkina. Anastasiya Bliznyuk está lesionada.

Alina Makarenko está semi lesionada, por ello no realizó muchos elementos de flexibilidad y giros durante los entrenamientos.

Hoy no fue el mejor día para Maria Titova, la cual salió triste de la sala de calentamiento tras fallar repetidamente en el ejercicio de aro.

Las entrenadoras que estaban allí eran: Dinara Gimatova, Natalia Lipkovskaya, AminaZaripova, Lyudmila Dmitrova y Oksana Skaldina. Oleg Naumov (fotógrafo) e Irina Zenovka (coreógrafa) se encontraban allí asímismo.

Irina Viner acudió también a Thiais y fue la encargada de dirigir todos los entrenamientos de su equipo.

Ucrania tiene una nueva componente en el conjunto: Viktoria Shynkarenko. Viktoria sólo actúa en el ejercicio mixto de 3 pelotas y 2 cintas. Todo el equipo ucraniano vestía una camiseta color rosa flúor. La madre de Anna Bessonova, estaba también en los entrenamientos como asistente. Viktoriya Mazur no paró de sonreír en todo momento. Por otra parte, Alina Maksymenko llevaba un vendaje protector en uno de sus tobillos y tuvo dificultades en el ejercicio de cinta.

Como se había anunciado en, España tiene dos nuevas componentes en el conjunto: Artemi Gavezou Castro (10 mazas) y Marina Fernández Moreno (ejercicio mixto). Todas las españolas iban uniformadas con una camiseta en donde estaba grabado su nombre y calentadores rojos. Loreto Achaerandio, pese a estar recuperándose de una cirugía, acudió pero sin actuar. El conjunto español estaba muy seguro de sí mismo y son unas de las candidatas para el podium. Como es tradición, uno de los ejercicios tiene música española, esta vez el elegido ha sido el ejercicio de 10 mazas.

Azerbayán tiene este año un equipo muy completo al mando de Mariana Vasileva: Marina Durunda y Lala Yusifova. Lala fue muy regular en todos sus ejercicios.

Caroline Weber, se convierte en la gimnasta más veterana del momento, la cual entrenó a las últimas horas junto con Veróniva Bertolini y Neta Rivkin, la cual está en plena forma.
