The 9th European Men's and Women's Artistic Gymnastics Individual Championships are scheduled for 21–25 April 2021 at St. Jakobshalle in Basel, Switzerland. This was the second time in five years that Switzerland hosted the European Championships. There was no junior competition this year. The event provides all of the competing nations with the final opportunity to qualify places to the rescheduled Olympic Games in Tokyo.
The London 2012 Olympic gymnastics bronze medalist and two-time World all-around medallist came back to the sport for a chance at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games in 2021, and this is her chance to qualify.
The men’s line up will be led by Max Whitlock MBE (South Essex) who is looking to add a fifth European title to his growing list of accolades. He’s joined by 2019 parallel bars world champion Joe Fraser from City of Birmingham and two-time individual European medallist Courtney Tulloch from Pegasus.
In the six-strong team will also be Giarnni Regini-Moran from Manchester Academy, Joshua Nathan from City of Birmingham and Jake Jarman from Huntingdon. Selected in the women’s team are 2019 European beam champion Alice Kinsella from Park Wrekin and Amelie Morgan from The Academy alongside twin sisters Jessica Gadirova and Jennifer Gadirova from Aylesbury who will compete at their first major senior Championships.
