FIG Artistic Gymnastics Level 3 Academy
Cancun (MEX), November 13 – 20, 2011

LAUSANNE (SUI), FIG Office, Novembver 28, 2011: The Mexican Gymnastics Federation hosted a Level 3 FIG Academy for Men’s and Women’s Artistic Gymnastics in the middle of November. It was the 113th Academy overall and the 17th Level 3 Academy for Artistic Gymnastics since this coaching education programme began in 2002. The Academy was hosted at the magnificent facilities of the High Performance Centre - Gymnastics Cancun CAR (Centro de Alto Rendimiento). Because of its wonderful tropical location, it has in a few short years had perhaps more world visitors than any other gymnastics club.
Thirty-eight coaches participated (19 WAG and 19 MAG) from 14 Pan-American countries – Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Mexico, Panama, Peru, Puerto Rico and Venezuela. Each of the participating coaches had successfully completed Level 1 and level 2 Academies in previous years. Participation was partially funded by the FIG Development Fund for PAGU.
The experts were among the most successful and renowned persons in their fields. Héctor Ramírez of Spain who served for many years as both Cuban and then Spanish national coach who produced world medallists in both countries taught the men’s apparatus. Kelly Manjak of Canada who was the coach of 2004 Olympic Champion Kyle Shewfelt and since then has placed many girls on Canada’s national team taught the women’s apparatus. Rhony Ferreira of Brazil who works with the Brazilian team taught artistic preparation and choreography. Ignacio Grande of Spain taught five theory lectures and also translated the English lectures and Tatiana Aguiar of Costa Rica taught psychology. The course leader was Hardy Fink, the Director of FIG Education & Academy Programmes and he also taught three of the theory lectures.
 Fifteen coaches who had met special eligibility requirements attempted the examination for the FIG Coaching Brevet but only six of them were successful in achieving the required 85% on the combined theory and practical examinations. These were for WAG, Daníela Conde of Argentina, Loana Cruz of Puerto Rico, Ruby Vásquez of Colombia and Diego Medina of Colombia. For WAG it Was Leonardo Gonzáles of Colombia and José Súcart of Puerto Rico. In addition the FIG Coaching Brevet was conferred on Héctor Ramírez who served as the expert for all of the men’s apparatus.
The highest result for MAG and for the course overall was achieved by Jorge Giraldo of Colombia who achieved a score of 91% on the combined theory and practical examinations. However he was not eligible for the FIG Coaching Brevet. The highest mark for WAG coaches was achieved by Daníela Conde of Argentina.
The organisation of the course was of the highest quality and all technical, audio-visual, and educational equipment as well as helpers was constantly available. The three co-owners of the gymnasium - Rosa Peniche, her husband Pablo Arenas and her brother, former Olympian, Alejandro Peniche - went out of their way to make the long days in the gymnasium a delight and provided us also with eight diligent and accomplished gymnasts as demonstrators. The theory lectures were held in the Oasis Palm Beach Hotel.
Thanks and congratulations go to Gustavo Salazar, the President of the Mexico Gymnastics Federation and his team of workers and gymnasts for organizing such a successful FIG Academy. Special thanks also go to Naomi Velenzo for the tireless work she did before and during the Academy. As a member of the FIG Women’s Technical Committee she had an incredibly busy time at World Championships and Pan-American Games just before this Academy but stayed diligent and cheerful throughout.
The 114th Academy began in Senegal (for Aerobic Gymnastics) during this course and immediately afterwards, the 115th began in Venezuela (for Acrobatic Gymnastics). Three more Academies will be conducted during December – a Level 3 for Rhythmic Gymnastics in Tokyo followed immediately by a Level 3 for MAG and WAG also in Tokyo and a Level 1 for MAG and WAG in Chile.
