39th World Artistic Gymnastics Championships were held in Aarhus, Denmark from October 13 to October 21, 2006, in NRGi Arena.

The International Gymnastics Federation, which celebrated the 125th anniversary of its foundation in 2006, introduced the new Code of Points to the World Championships for the first time. The new open-ended code consists of separate scores for the difficulty and execution of a routine, removing the standard "perfect 10".

Vanessa Ferrari won the first ever gold medal for the Italian women's program in the individual all-around.
