AEON CUP 2014 Worldwide R.G. Club Championships held in Tokyo
            n response to the Bosnian War spurred in 1992, Aeon proposed holding Aeon Cup, Worldwide R.G. Club Championships, in 1994 in a hope that the Championships will be an international platform for people with different nationality, ethnicity, and religion to interact with each other. Ever since then, Aeon has been supporting the Championships as a main sponsor. From 17th to 19th October 2014, 54 world’s top gymnasts of 18 clubs from 16 countries have gathered at Tokyo Metropolitan Gymnasium for the tournament, which marked its 20th anniversary in 2014, to compete their beautiful performances. Margarita Mamun from Russia, who had won the 2nd place in the World R.G. Championship held in September 2014, won her first title in the Individual Championships. As to Japan, Ruriko Shibayama from team Aeon made her way to 5th place in the Junior Championships. The team Aeon as a whole, like the previous year, advanced to the semi-final, winning 4th place. The part of the collected ticket fee will be presented to UNHCR (Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees) for the sake of world’s refugee children under the will of the participated gymnasts. Aeon will continue to support Aeon Cup in order to contribute to the sound development of the mind and body of children, a love of sports, and world peace that can achieved through them.
