Golden days

Portimão has been awarded the right to stage the 2nd Golden Age Gym Festival between October 3 and 8 of next year. Following the 2008 inaugural Canary Islands edition, 3000 gymnasts aged 50 or over representing 25 European countries will compete in the second-most important Algarve city. All disciplines including rhythmic and acrobatics gymnastics are set to be held at various Portimão venues from the multipurpose sports Arena to the Santa Catarina Fort and the marina.
