Two weeks ago the streets of Helsinki were fulfilled with thousands and thousands of gymnasts. Even though we had gave advanced warnings of what was coming up on July, it’s clear now that just a few believed how great the World Gymnaestrada will be before it actually conquered Helsinki.
Gymnaestrada is not only about gymnastics. It is also a great chance for gymnasts from all over the world to create lifelong friendships and in the best possible scenario even find love. We wanted to know more about the feelings the World Gymnaestrada 2015 woke up in participants’ minds. Was there infatuation between gymnasts and did it actually lead to something more? Was there a certain group of nationalities that interest above all and who had the best looks?
The World Gymnaestrada 2015 has collected a lot of compliments and praises. The event has been described as a great success and even the best World Gymnaestrada ever. However, we think that there is always room for a little improvement. Every opinion concerning the event matters, and that’s why we have made a survey to collect feedback from the World Gymnaestrada participants and spectators.
At this point of the event it might be clear to you, that we here in the World Gymnaestrada do almost everything with a great feeling and little party. Nothing changes when it comes to thanking our volunteers. When all the participants start packing their belongings or have already started their journey back home, we kept the World Gymnaestrada going on just to arrange a thank you party for our wonderful volunteers.
Thank you for an amazing week!
World Gymnaestrada 2015 Helsinki was amazing, unforgettable, spectacular, emotional and eventful. It was like a big family meeting, and we all definately made the Earth move! Thank you for this amazing World Gymnaestrada week!
Greetings from the World Gymnaestrada Volunteers
The 15th World Gymnaestrada Helsinki would not have been organised without the help of our volunteers. The event gathered over 3,000 volunteers from 31 different countries, 90 % of them came from Finland.
The Finnish capital that is usually quite calm during the summer has been crowded by more than 20,000 international gymnasts. The colourful tracksuits of different teams have taken over the streets while getting from one venue to another. The World Gymnaestrada 2015 has been noticed because of the joy of the people: there have been spontaneous demonstrations of support, songs, displays of acrobatics and enthusiasm to swap shirts.
