Federal Gymnastics Festival Nearly 70,000 gymnasts perform at rare event

The 76th edition of the Federal Gymnastics Festival in Aarau, northern Switzerland, ended on Sunday with a colourful closing ceremony. The organising committee spoke of a successful festival with 69,000 gymnasts and around 200,000 visitors.

At the two-hour closing ceremony, the “Swiss Gymnastics Family” at the Finalissima ceremony at the Brügglifeld football stadium created a festive atmosphere.

Over the course of ten days, crowds of spectators showed up to watch the many gymnasts and athletes at Brügglifeld. They repeatedly acknowledged the performances of the groups, accompanied by music – from rock to disco and oldies – with loud applause.
