About the Sport

Gymnastics is one of the oldest Olympic sports and has always been a part of the ancient, as well as the modern Olympic Games.

In artistic gymnastics, men participate in six apparatus: floor exercises, pommel horse, rings, vault, parallel bars and horizontal bar. Women participate in four apparatus: vault, uneven bars, balance beam and floor exercises. 

Team GB have won eight Olympic artistic gymnastics medals, including three at London 2012 with Beth Tweddle and Max Whitlock winning individual bronze and the men’s team taking silver.
