“It was very difficult selecting the 2017-18 men’s national teams, as never before has there been so much depth in the Canadian men’s program,” said Tony Smith, national team director for men’s artistic gymnastics at Gymnastics Canada. “We have assembled a strong group of young athletes who are just entering into their International careers, and it’s my expectation that these young men will dramatically improve over the next two years and put Canada in a strong position to qualify for the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo.”

Highlights on the competition calendar for men’s artistic gymnastics this year include the 2017 FIG Artistic Gymnastics World Championships in Montreal from October 2-8, and the 2017 Universiade in Taipei, TWN in August.

THE ATHLETES:

SENIOR NATIONAL TEAM

JUNIOR NATIONAL TEAM (16-17 YRS)
