In a unique combination, the Yevgeni Podgorny Gymnastics Centre in Novosibirsk has created ideal conditions for both training and competition on an area of around 3,800 m2. The needs of artistic gymnasts in training differ from those in competition, which was addressed specifically in the design of the hall. There are separate training areas at both ends of the hall. In the centre of the hall, a set of apparatus is available to users for the staging of competitions.
All installed SPIETH competition apparatus and mats meet the high standards of the International Gymnastics Federation (FIG) and are FIG-certified. This will enable the Russian national gymnastics team, among others, to prepare for the upcoming highlights in the competition calendar in the best possible way. For example, the European Championships in Szczecin (Poland) and the World Championships in Stuttgart (Germany) are scheduled for 2019. Both events will be held on SPIETH apparatus and also count towards qualification for the Olympic Summer Games in Tokyo.
