Everything You Need to Follow the 2023 World Championships

Team Türkiye

Podium training is well underway for the WAG and MAG competitors at Sportpaleis Antwerpen in Belgium, where this year’s world championships are being held. Now that rosters are pretty much solidified and we have all of the information we’ll need to follow along with the action – HINT: QUALIFICATION STREAMS!!! – let’s get into all of it.

What’s at Stake?

The majority of athletes who will earn spots to compete at the 2024 Olympic Games will get those spots here. So far, only three WAG teams (United States, Great Britain, and Canada) and three MAG teams (China, Japan, and Great Britain) have punched their tickets, but in Antwerp, an additional nine teams per discipline will earn berths, along with 21 WAG individuals and 17 MAG individuals.

If you’re interested in all of the intricate details of qualifying, we put together a full rundown of everything you can find in the FIG’s document, which also includes a case study using last year’s results. If you don’t really care but still want to know, here’s a chart.

How Can We Follow Along?

Every session of this competition will be streamed on the FIG’s new streaming site, All Gymnastics. Yes, you heard right – every session, including all qualification sessions, which will have their own individual apparatus streams , so get all of your screens ready!

I’m not sure if there will be a VPN required. There may be a requirement for countries that have purchased broadcast rights, in which case these countries will be blocked from the FIG streams. Have one handy just in case – I use NordVPN.

You can also find all start lists and follow the live scores via the FIG’s event website, with live scores also available thanks to Swiss Timing.
