Albufeira hosts adapted and inclusive acrobatic gymnastics tournament - Jornal diariOnline Região Sul


The Sports Pavilion of Albufeira will host on Saturday, 25, the Adaptive and Inclusive Acrobatic Gymnastics Tournament, with the participation of half a hundred gymnasts with different limitations.

The adaptation of the acrobatic gymnastics modality for people with limitations or deficiencies happens since 2014 in the Algarve, by the partnership between the Algarve Association of Parents and Friends of Mentally Diminished Children and the Algarve Gymnastics Association.

In this tournament, which takes place from 13:30 to 15:30, there are 47 gymnasts with different limitations (intellectual disability, visual impairment and motor deficiency).

"Gymnastics is a sport that can embrace everyone and in a truly inclusive model where non-disabled gymnasts cooperate with disabled gymnasts in beautiful, inclusive, moving art choreographies," the organization says of the initiative.
