The Rhythmic Gymnastics World Cup is a competition for rhythmic gymnastics sanctioned by the Fédération Internationale de Gymnastique (FIG). The gymnasts are invited based on Federation invitation, World Standings, results from the previous World Championships or Olympics Games and the winners are awarded prize money.

History[edit]

In 1975, the Fédération Internationale de Gymnastique (FIG) sporadically decided to organise an original competition, reserved for the current best gymnasts. It was composed of a single and unique event, bringing together elite gymnasts in all around competition and in apparatus finals. Galas are part of the Event. World Cup was used an alternative to the World Championships which was held every 2 years.

This schedule was kept until 1990, the year in which the world championships cycle was modified. In 1997, the FIG Executive Committee updated and made its international calendar consistent and took the decision to hold a World Cup Final (in even years) in alternance with the World Championships (in odd years). Since 2009, the World Championships are now held annually with the all-around titles competed annually.

World Cup Final is the last FIG sanctioned World Cup Series for the season.
