The FIG Executive Committee, which held its third meeting of the year in Tonsberg, Norway between July 27 - July 29, has finally decided to organize Junior World Championships in Artistic Gymnastics, starting in 2019.

Therefor, they have asked the Competition Commission in consultation with the respective Technical Committee Presidents to develop the necessary rules and criteria to be presented for approval at the next EC meeting in October 2017.

The EC has as well approved the nationality changes for two judges, two Rhythmic gymnasts and male gymnast. 

Alla Sosnitskaya's name was not mentioned among those who have changed their nationalities. The Russian born was recently seen competing for Georgia at a small meet.

Athletes who qualify for the 2020 Olympic Games through the Individual World Cup Series will be allowed to participate on all apparatus in the qualification at the Games.
