Looking Ahead to the Glasgow World Cup

4:32 PM

The Glasgow World Cup is set to be held on the 7th of December at the Emirates Arena in Glasgow, Scotland. The competition will get underway from 1.00pm to 4.30pm (Glasgow Local Time). Ukrainian Oleg Verniaiev and American Elizabeth Price will be hoping to continue to build on the success they had by winning the All Around titles at the Stuttgart World Cup. Price won the title in Glasgow last year, whilst Great Britain's own Daniel Purvis will be hoping to recapture the title he won back in 2011. Six Men in the field competed in Stuttgart World Cup event, whilst Sam Oldham of Great Britain competed on all six events for the Great Britain team in the EnBW DTB-Pokal Team Challenge event whilst Japan's Masayoshi Yamamoto competed on the Pommel Horse, Still Rings, Vault and Horizontal for his team in the Team Challenge. 

Five Women in the field competed in Stuttgart, whilst Spain's Roxana Popa Nedelcu dominated at the 2013 Abierto de Gimnasia. Asuka Teramoto of Japan comes into this competition, as too does Raer Theaker of Great Britain who recently competed Uneven Bars as a Guest at the 2013 Northern European Gymnastics Championships. 

All in all it should be a fantastic competition!!
