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.

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.

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.
