Frankfurt/Main (dpa/lhe) - The Hessian State Gymnastics Festival planned for 2023 is cancelled. "For the first time we wanted to celebrate a gymnastics festival together with the Thuringian Gymnastics Association. However, one or the other hurdle came up that made implementation impossible," said Ulrich Müller, President of the Hessian Gymnastics Association, on Wednesday. Whether and to what extent joint implementation at a later date is realistic is currently being examined. The Hessian State Gymnastics Festival normally takes place every four years. In 2019, Bensheim and Heppenheim were the organizers.
