More than 550 days on from the last major artistic championship, gymnastics returns this month with the highly anticipated 2021 Artistic European Championships taking place in Basel, Switzerland, from 21st-25th April.
We’re excited that live gymnastics is back, and we’re delighted to announce that you’ll be able to watch the all-around and apparatus finals live on BBC online and BBC iPlayer. There will also be special highlight shows on BBC Two on the last two days of the Championships.
Qualifying is also due to be streamed live online.
For updates throughout the event, make sure you’re following us on Twitter, and visit our event page for all of the latest news and reports following each day of competition. For more information, you can also visit the European Gymnastics event page.
The Championships represent an opportunity for gymnasts to qualify additional places for Team GB at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. They can do this by placing in the top two in all-around qualifying, however any gymnast that competed in the 2019 World Championships event is not eligible to qualify a place this way.
