The enthusiasm seen and experienced last May at the DOBRO World Cup Osijek / Croatia continues until this day for many. And it’s a good thing, because the twelfth edition of the FIG World Challenge Cup Osijek is closer than ever!
Another better, bigger and more attractive edition of the official stage of the FIG competition series in Croatia will be held in June, and the Croatian national team and their colleagues from Europe and the world will again fight for medals and more importantly, the standing ovation of the audience in the always crowded Sport arena Gradski vrt in Osijek.
Last year’s edition received two “units” – a domestic pommel horse specialist, Osijek’s Robert Seligman and the great gymnast from Spli, Ana Đerek, delighted the judges with their top performances and brought two gold medals to Croatia as a perfect gift for the 11th edition of the competition, which delighted audience knew how to reward.
“The audience here is incredible, really … A competition that … This is something you feel like once in a lifetime,” Ana recalled of her 2019 gold.
The next edition of the DOBRO World Cup, for most gymnasts the last competition before the Tokyo Olympics, will held from June 17 to 21, 2020, and will again bring together Olympic, World and European medal winners in Osijek, Croatia. Robert Seligman, Tin Srbić, Filip Ude, Aurel Benović, Tijana Tkalčec, Ana Đerek and others will continue to be their favorite among the local audiences. .
The event, which has become one of the hallmarks of the beggining of the Osijek’s summer season, the Gastro&Wine&Music Festival FEELGOOD WEEKEND, will announce the DOBRO World Cup Osijek this year. Again in the perfect setting of Petar Krešimir IV Park with their tastes, smells and sounds, on June 19 and 20, they will once again delight all visitors, because the main goal is still the same – for everyone who fall in love with Osijek, remain in love with this city until the end.
The cover faces of this year’s edition of the event in Osijek are Croatia’s best athlete, Tin Srbić and the brilliant Ana Đerek.
“I’m happy to be again „the face“ of the DOBRO World Cup. I love performing in Osijek and in front of the home crowd, and this year will be the last competition before the Tokyo Olympics, so I will surely do my best to cheer up the audience and promote gymnastics in the best way possible,” said Tin.
“I am delighted to have the opportunity again to promote gymnastics and my favorite World Cup. I look forward to performing, having fun and being a part of this top-level organization,” said the best Croatian gymnast Ana Đerek about her return to Osijek and the opportunity to be the face of one of the biggest gymnastics events in this part of Europe.
