44th Artistic Gymnastics World Championships
Longines awarded its Prize for Elegance to the American gymnast Kyla Ross and to the world champion, Japanese gymnast Kohei Uchimura at the end of the second all-around final on the Friday evening. The aim of this prize is to honour the two gymnasts who have displayed the most charisma, charm and above all elegance – one of Longines’ key values – during their performances. At the 44th Artistic Gymnastics World Championships, which take place in Antwerp, the Swiss watch brand – official timekeeper of the event – awarded the Longines Prize for Elegance to Kyla Ross (USA) and to Kohei Uchimura (Japan). World champion for the fourth consecutive time, a record, the Japanese athlete received this prize for the second time. With their stunning performances, both gymnasts have charmed the jury, made up of Bruno Grandi, President of the FIG, Philip Boy, former German gymnast and winner of the prize in 2010, Walter von Känel, President of Longines and Elisabeth Ieronimo, Regional Sales Manager Longines. Members of the jury have presented the winners with a trophy, a Longines watch and a cheque for 5’000$. Set up in 1997, the Longines Prize for Elegance is aimed at honouring the most elegant and charismatic gymnasts. Apart from purely technical considerations, the criteria are based rather on grace, harmonious movement and emotion during the performances.
