Africa in honor this year!
– Saturday, May 05th, 2018
Sport became, in a little more than a century, a worldwide language and one of the most effective ways of gathering that the humanity has never known before, and Africa does not make an exception because it offers through Gymnasiade2018 a very positive vision of the sports successes. Our wonderful continent sheltered for the first time from its history this 17th Edition of Gymnasiade. Twenty African countries are participating to this sporting event. A record number compared to the previous editions.
And even if the african continent, by its participations and its performances in Olympics and in different competitions, is already present in the media space, this edition strengthens the African presence at the world level. Besides being the cradle of the humanity, our continent also acts, for the time of this edition, as a cradle of the sport.
Numerous African athletes have already proved to the world that willingness and perseverance were good investment, becoming real symbols of hope for their nations.
