Gymnastics

Gymnastics is a sport requiring physical strength, flexibility, agility, coordination, and balance.

The word gymnastic comes from Greek gymnastikos "fond of athletic exercises" and gymnos "naked," because Greeks exercised and competed in the nude.

Types of gymnastics: artistic, rhythmic, trampolining & tumbling, aerobic, acrobatic.

Artistic gymnastics is the best known type of competitive gymnastics, typically including uneven bars, balance beam, floor exercise, and vault (women's events) and floor exercise, pommel horse, still rings, vault, parallel bars, and high bar (men's events).

Rhythmic gymnastics: Typically only women compete in rhythmic gymnastics, combining ballet, dance, and gymnastics with 5 routines using ball, ribbon, hoop, clubs, and rope. However, Japan has begun a men's version rhythmic gymnastics.

Olympics: USA Gymnastics.

Boys and girls gymnastics: Men and women compete in different gymnastic events.

Ancient Olympics for Women

"Along with the athletic contests held at ancient Olympia, there was a separate festival in honor of Hera (the wife of Zeus). This festival included foot races for unmarried girls. Although it is not known how old the festival was, it may have been almost as old as the festival for boys and men."
  • The Hera games festival took place every four years.
  • Only unmarried women could participate in the games.
