2019 World Cup Gymnastics
When: Thursday 21st to Sunday 24th February 2019
Where: Melbourne Arena (Previously called Hisense Arena)
The Gymnastics World Cup is split into four stops as a part of the Individual Apparatus World Cup Circuit.
The winners from each apparatus are determined by the combined total of each gymnast’s best three scores.
The Individual Apparatus World Cup Circuit began in 2016 and ran through until 2018. The other three countries accompanying Melbourne in the circuit are Cottbus, Doha and Baku.
Get ready for Tokyo 2020!
The Individual Apparatus competitions held in 2019 and 2020 will serve as qualifiers for the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.
This month’s World Cup will see gymnasts from 30 countries compete on our shores. Competitors will arrive from China, Canda, Japan and more to showcase the best their nation has to offer.
Many of our own Aussie favourites will display their skills and athleticism at Melbourne Arena.

Names and faces to look out for
One Australian face the crowds are sure to be keen to see is Alexandra Eade.
The rising star had a big 2018, winning a gold medal on the floor at the Melbourne World Cup.
She was selected to represent Australia at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games where she earned another gold medal for floor.
There’s bound to be a lot of yellow and green shirts in the stands for Alex’s floor routine!
An equally exciting addition to the Australian team is Christopher Remkes.
In 2017 he won gold on vault at the Melbourne World Cup.
If there had been any doubt about whether he earned his medal, he backed up his win in April 2018 with a gold medal for vault at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.
The Philippines-born athlete lives in South Australia and is one of Australia’s best hopes for the Tokyo Olympics in 2020!
The list of competitors includes the floor champion from the European Championships, Dominick Cunningham.
The 23-year-old represents Britain and claimed a bronze medal for vault in the 2018 Commonwealth Games.
Representing Britain alongside Dominick will be 23-year-old Courtney Tulloch.
He is best known for his ability on the rings, but at the 2018 Commonwealth Games he claimed a silver medal in both rings and vault. Courtney is certainly an athlete you won’t want to miss!
