Women’s Artistic Gymnastics is for women and girls of all ages. Develop your skills for fun and fitness or challenge yourself further through competitions from local to national, right through to international level. The four competitive apparatus in Women’s Artistic Gymnastics are:
- A 20m sprint to the vaulting table followed by springing onto and off the hands and landing perfectly on the other side. Extra rotations at any point increase the difficulty.
- Requiring strength, precision, rhythm, concentration and courage; the gymnast moves from one bar to the other, alternating grip changes, releases and regrasps, saltos and changes of direction with circular swings.
- Balance at its most extreme, adding an extra element to the acrobatic sequences, gymnastic jumps and turns. It is an exercise not only of flexibility, but also of concentration, rhythm and expression.
- A creative combination of expressive dance, daring acrobatics and powerful gymnastics performed to music, where each gymnast communicates her own personality and style.
Women’s Artistic Gymnastics is governed internationally by the Federation Internationale de Gymnastique (FIG).
