Apart from purely technical considerations, the criteria applied by the jury are based on elegance, harmonious movement and emotion during the performances.
The jury of the Longines Prize for Elegance comprised Morinari Watanabe, FIG President, Ian Charbonneau, Longines Brand Manager Canada as well as Nadia Comaneci, former gymnast, Women’s Artistic Gymnastics Ambassador and spokesperson for the 2017 Artistic Gymnastics World Championships. The jury’s individual assessments were combined to form a collective judgment reflecting a perceptive and balanced evaluation of the gymnasts’ performances.

Besides, these World Championships were also the occasion for Longines to cheer for its Ambassador of Elegance, the Swiss athlete Giulia Steingruber, who took a very good 7th place at the Final of the individual All-Around competition.
