Suspended since 2015 after irregularities were detected in the finance of the Mauritian Gymnastics Federation, the Mauritius Olympic Committee wants to revive this discipline. “We are working with the International Federation to bring together the whole Mauritian gymnastics family under the same umbrella,” said the President of the Mauritius Olympic Committee (MOC), Philippe Hao Thyn Voon.
Henceforth, he had a working session with the emissary of the International Gymnastics Federation, Mr. André Gueisbuhler early this week. The latter was delegated by the international body to Mauritius to set up a new structure with the aim of reviving this discipline.
“The President of the International Federation, the Japanese Morinari Watanabe was in Mauritius a few weeks ago. It was him who sent an emissary to take stock of the situation and set up a recovery structure. During his stay, André Gueisbuhler had several working sessions with the various parties. Things are on the good track. We will continue to work until the return of Mr. André in two weeks to initiate the steps to set up the federation”, explained Philippe Hao Thyn Voon.
