Schedule Confirmed For Superstars of Gymnastics
The apparatus schedule for the Superstars of Gymnastics has been confirmed, with Simone Biles and Max Whitlock both set to perform special routines in each of the two sessions at The O2 on Saturday, March 23.
Biles, who won four Olympic Gold medals at Rio 2016, will open the show at the start of the afternoon session before taking her seat alongside fellow judges Whitlock, Amy Tinkler and Laurent Landi.
The afternoon session will see male gymnasts perform on Horizontal Bars, Parallel Bars and Floor and female participants will take to the Vault and Beam. Whitlock will close the afternoon session and open proceedings in the evening.
The evening session sees the women’s Uneven Bars and Floor events and the men’s Ring, Vault and Pommel before Biles closes the show.
With the exception of Biles and Whitlock’s performances, routines will be judged by the all-star panel, who will also provide feedback. Each apparatus will have its own leaderboard with a winner per piece to be determined by the highest combined score.
Athletes have the freedom to devise and perform their own routines and judges will score out of 10 based on flair, creative choreography, execution and engagement with the live crowd at The O2.
The Superstars of Gymnastics will showcase an exhibition of the very best talent in gymnastics over two sessions live on Sky Sports at The O2, London. From Great Britain, James Hall, Danny Purvis, Dom Cunningham, Courtney Tulloch, Sam Oldham and Jay Thompson have all been confirmed.
The event also features a raft of international stars including Fabian Hambüchen, a gold medallist on horizontal bars at Rio 2016, triple Commonwealth Games gold medallist Ellie Black, double Olympic silver medallist Marcel Nguyen, three-time World Champion Oksana Chusovitine, four-time World Cup medallist Elisabeth Seitz, six-time Dutch national champion Casimir Schmidt and Jamacian international Danusia Francis.
