  5. 2017 World Artistic Gymnastics Championships

    The 2017 World Artistic Gymnastics Championships will be the forty-seventh edition of the championships. They are being held between October 2 - October 8, 2017, at the Olympic Stadium in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

    The event marks the first time since 2003 that the championships have been held in North America. Montreal was also the host of the 1985 World Artistic Gymnastics. The city previously hosted the 1976 Summer Olympics, at which Nadia Comaneci scored perfect 10.0 in artistic gymnastics.

    This event is part of Montreal's 375th anniversary celebrations, and Canada's 150th anniversary celebrations, both of which fall in 2017.
