Open Mixed Masters:
Cancellation of IRV Event in Riga

Feb 6, 2017

The framework of the CSIT World Sports Games offers a wide range of possibilities for us to organise an international event like the Open Mixed Masters. However, we face challenges, that can only be realised with a substantial number of participants. Unfortunately, we have received only five team registrations for the event in Riga.

The plans for 2020 and beyond include changes to the current competition format, the establishment of a “community and knowledge” platform to offer sustainable support to international development activities, as well as increased co-operation with other sports federations.

About the IRV

The IRV (International Wheel Gymnastics Federation)
is the international representative body for the sport of wheel gymnastics.

The IRV organises the World Championships, Team World Cup, coaching courses, judging courses, training and youth camps. It is also responsible for the international Code of Points and certification of international judges and coaches. The IRV is based in Switzerland and has an executive board and technical commission comprising nine representatives from different countries who work on a voluntary basis to pave the way forward for the federation.

There are three competitive disciplines within regular wheel gymnastics: straight-line, spiral and vault. Another form of wheel gymnastics, the Cyr wheel, was added to the IRV’s competitive programme in 2013. The Cyr wheel (a wheel with only one rim and no handles), with its alternative and innovative moves, provides an added dimension to the fascination of wheel gymnastics.
