Chapter 1 of the 18th edition of the African Artistic Gymnastics Championship: False mark


The 18th edition of the African Artistic Gymnastics Championship began last Friday evening in the Lalla Meryem indoor hall located in the M’hamid district, and only ended on Monday, with the participation of around 165 athletes. representing 8 African countries in addition to Morocco

This competition, supposed to be a major event commensurate with the brand image of the Kingdom of Morocco, especially since it was under the High Patronage of HM King Mohammed VI, ultimately failed in its mission on several counts.

This shows where we are today as Morocco aims to restore its image to its true value except that some have remained stuck at a standstill and thus harm the reputation of the Kingdom of Morocco
