Gymnastics at the 2012 Olympics!

As preparations continue here for the 2012 Olympics, even though it’s still two years away, we can’t wait for the Gymnastics!

There are three disciplines to compete in the sport of Gymnastics in the 2012 Olympic Games in London, they are as follows…

Artistic Gymnastics

Gymnastics is traditionally one of the most popular events with spectators around the world. The 1976 Olympic Games heralded an era of younger champions, trained specifically in gymnastics from childhood. However, now you must be 16 to compete in the Olympic Games.

Trampoline Gymnastics

Trampoline is the newest Gymnastics discipline at the Games, making its debut at Sydney 2000. Gymnasts compete on an elastic ‘bed’ that can launch them 10m in the air.

Rhythmic Gymnastics

Rhythmic Gymnastics was introduced at Los Angeles 1984. Rhythmic Gymnastics is for women only, and is a combination of gymnastics and dance.

A total of 18 Gold Medals are available from all the Gymnastic events at the Olympic Games, that’s a lot of medals!
Gymnastics is a highly competitive and extremely disciplined sport, with the slightest mistake making a huge difference between success and failure, gymnasts lay it all on the line for perfection in their chosen sport.

Gymnastics is one of the most competitive and challenging of all the events at the Olympics. The record for most medals won in any sport at the Olympics is held by Soviet gymnast Larisa Latynina, that’s quite the collection, and illustrates the dedication to the sport its devoted followers have! Another example of a gymnasts dedication was seen at the Olympic games in Montreal 1976, Shun Fujimoto competed with a broken leg to help Japan win the Team Gold Medal, now that’s dedication!
