This year's World Gymnastic Championships will be held in London for the first time.

London 2009 will be a benchmark event for the new Olympic cycle (2009 - 2012) leading to the Olympic Games, which London will host in 2012, with The O2 hosting both the Basketball and Gymnastic events.
The Championships will see outstanding performances from the best gymnasts in the world representing China, Japan, USA, Romania, Russia, Poland, France, PRK, Korea, Croatia, Spain, Germany, Great Britain, Ukraine and Uzbekistan, along with many other strong gymnastics nations.
