Jackson Payne to Represent Canada at the 2019 FIG World Artistic Gymnastics Championships
Gymnastics Canada has announced the Canadian team of athletes, coaches, judges and support staff who will represent Canada at the 2019 FIG World Artistic Gymnastics Championships in Stuttgart, Germany from October 4 - 13, 2019. Among them are Jackson Payne and Coach Bin Fan from the Calgary Gymnastics Centre in Alberta. The competition will be fierce as this is the last opportunity for countries to qualify a four-person team for the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo. The teams finishing in the top-12, who have not previously qualified (the top-3 teams from 2018 World Championships), will earn a spot for Tokyo. In total, 5 women and 6 men will represent Team Canada on the world stage.
