The 2016 Cottbus World Cup took place in the Lausitz Arena in Cottbus, Germany from Thursday, 17th- Sunday 20th November 2016.

Qualifications took place on Thursday, 17th and Friday, 18th November 2016. Saturday, 19th November saw WAG VT & UB finals take place with BB & FX finals taking place on Sunday, 20th November.

16 year old Olympian, Zsofia Kovacs of Hungary shone at the event, taking two event titles (UB & BB) along with a bronze medal on the VT and a 5th place finish on FX, having qualified into the final in 3rd place. Kovacs is certainly one to watch for the future, this being her first year as a senior gymnast, she has had a stellar 2016, representing Hungary at the Olympic Games in Rio and finishing 3rd AA  in qualifications at the 2016 European Championships in Bern, Switzerland. Her scores and gymnastics are certainly worthy of medals on the European, if not, Worlds stage. Hopefully we will see her on those podiums in 2017.

Another gymnast who had a great competition was Carina Kroell of Germany who took the FX event title along with a silver medal on the BB. Leah Griesser of Germany also had a competition to be proud of, taking the silver medal on FX along with 4th place finishes on UB and BB.

2012 Olympian. Emily Little of Australia, who has been videoed working an impressive Amanar which I hope we will see in the near future, won the VT title without the Amanar. She also took the bronze medal on FX and finished in 7th in the BB final after a rough routine.

Hungarian veteran, Dorina Boeczoego also had a great competition, taking the silver medal on VT and UB, along with the bronze on BB and a 4th place finish on FX. This impressive medal haul showed the youngsters how to compete steadily and do your job on competition day.
