2019 Worlds Awarded to Stuttgart
(1 vote, average 5.00 out of 5)

The 2019 World Artistic Gymnastics Championships have been awarded to Stuttgart, Germany, which will play host to the world championships for the third time in three decades. The Suabian city's Hanns-Martin-Schleyer-Halle previously held the world championships in 1989 and 2007.

Going back to the first "modern" world championships in 1954, the Germans will have been the host to more world championships than any other nation with five: 1966, 1989, 1994, 2007 and 2019. Belgium and Great Britain have each hosted three worlds, with the British spreading their events across three cities: Birmingham in 1993, London in 2009 and the upcoming competition in Glasgow next month.
