15-19 July 2018 // Liège // Belgium

Bye Liège, see you in 2020 in Reykjavik!

Published Friday 20th July 2018

Every good things come to an end ... It's already time to say goodbye to the 4.100 gymnasts that came to Liège for the 11th EUROGYM. After 5 days of seeing them wander in our streets, we feel a little nostalgic. But this was also the occasion to say goodbye in style!

After another morning of workshops and city orienteering, the delegations took their last meal at the Palais des Congrès, before heading for the City center where they rehearsed the closing ceremony.

In the evening, gymnasts from Austria, Germany, France, Greece, Belgium, Iceland, Azerbaidjan, Great Britain, Luxembourg, Slovakia, Switzerland, Sweden, Norway, Italy, Portugal, Denmark, Estonia, Hungary, Finland and Israel delivered a colorful show that set the Place Saint Lambert on fire! 

In front of the city and UEG authorities, the athletes were a joy to watch, all smiling and showing what they had learned all week long in the workshops : ragga, zumba, hip hop, airtrack, parkour, ... they will return home with a brand new et of skills!

The closing ceremony continued with the flag being given over to Iceland, the next organiser of the EUROGYM. The lovely city of Reykjavik will indeed host the gymnastics festival in 2020! 

Our gymnasts then ended the evening like they started it : dancing! 

We'd like to wish them all a pleasant return home and we hope they enjoyed the week!

We'd also like to thank them all for their smiles and the happiness they showed all week.

Also a big thank you to our sponsors and partners, to the UEG and Liège authorities for their trust.

And of course, thank you to our volunteers! You guys have been the face of the event and it could not have been possible without you!

See you in 2020!

A colorful day at EUROGYM 2018!

Published Wednesday 18th July 2018

What a busy day on Day 4 of the EUROGYM!

The day started as usual, with the workshops, the groups preparing the closing ceremony that will take place on Thursday 19th July on Place Saint-Lambert. This show promises to be an exciting one! Wether you’re a fan of dance, rope skipping, twirling, ... you’ll always find something to satisfy you. 

Of course, some of the groups got to go on a journey in Liège, with the city orienteering guiding them on the hills and to the top of the City. Others went on a trip to Brussels or Aywaille, or even a cruise on the Meuse! 

In the afternoon, our City Performances showed once again amazing exercises, colorful and joyful. But the main topic of conversation was the UEG Gala!

At the Country Hall, 16 groups got to perform in front of 8.000 people during the 2 sessions organised. The groups wowed the crowd with their beautiful performances and brought emotions all over the place. 

This edition of the UEG Gala is certainly one to remember!

A royal day at EUROGYM 2018!

Day 3 of the EUROGYM ... The gymnasts start to take their marks, and the people in Liège are getting used to see colorful delegations on the streets. This morning saw another round of workshops, where the gymnasts learned how to play kinball, volleyball, bubble football. They climbed walls and shoot arrows. They performed new hip hop skills and did bike under water. Another busy morning for our athletes! In the morning still, Isabelle Beelen taught her educational forum, based on the incorporation of acrobatic gymnastics skills into Gym for All performances. Others climbed the Montagne de Buren for the City Orienteering !

We also had groups on excursions today! Climbing on the trees, visiting our lovely capital, Brussels, or trying to approach wild animals : a fantastic day for these groups.

Involved in social activities, especially among young people, Her Majesty the Queen Mathilde of Belgium showed a great interest in our event. Today, some of the groups got to perform in front of the Queen, as she came to see what they could do. She then went backstage, where she met gymnasts, displaying kind words and asking questions about what they thought of the event and their discipline. EUROGYM displays values of friendhsips, emotions, passion and fun and we were very excited to share these with the Queen.

But the day doesn't end here! Performances continued all over the City on Esplanade Saint Léonard and Place Saint-Lambert, and even later in the Parc de la Boverie, where we had a latenight session.

In the evening, our friends from Iceland also made a presentation about the EUROGYM 2020, hapenning in Reykjavik!

See you tomorrow for Day 4 of the EUROGYM!

A very busy day for our 4,000 gymnasts!

In the morning, our gymnasts attended their first workshops. On the program: zumba, kaerobic, body girly, bubble football, archery, airtrack, kinball, volleyball ... so many activities that made the joy of these athletes and allowed them to try out other disciplines.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

While their gymnasts were developing their skills, group's leaders and head of delegations had the opportunity to attend educational forums. This morning, Lore Marguillier of the GymFed proposed a forum called Multiskillz. This forum offers ideas to help kids learn and have a good time while doing! The second forum was presented by Professor Marc Cloes from the University of Liège. Its forum, entitled ObLoMoV: Victims of Obesity and Low Motility, proposes a new educational method to solve the problem of the inactivity of at least 1,000 young Europeans aged 11/13, as an effective strategy for avoid the problem of physical inactivity in adolescents.
