Artistic Gymnastics

Gymnasts compete on apparatus including vault, bars, beam, floor, horse and rings

Gymnastics (from the Greek world "gymnos" meaning "naked art") involves the performance of sequences of movements incorporating six distinct disciplines: artistic, rhythmic, trampoline, aerobic, acrobatic and general.

The first three disciplines are included in Olympic Games and Asian Games programmes.

Gymnastics requires a high level of flexibility, agility, strength and rhythm, as competitors bravely perform set moves on the floor or in the air.
