Rebeca Andrade, Brazil’s most decorated gymnast ever, is set to make her Olympic season debut at the World Challenge Cup in Antalya, Turkey on Friday, March 29.

She has achieved numerous accolades, including a 2022 World all-around gold, Brazil’s first World team medal, and a five-medal haul at the 2023 Worlds.

Additionally, eight-time Olympian Oksana Chusovitina is set to compete on all four apparatus as she prepares for the Asian Championships, her last opportunity to qualify for the Paris Olympic Games.

In the men’s field, Olympic parallel bronze medallist Ferhat Arican will be competing alongside his teammates Ibrahim Colak, the 2019 still rings World champion, and Adem Asil, the 2022 still rings World champion.
