Did you know?

  • One of the world's oldest sports, gymnastics featured prominently in the Ancient Games and has been part of every modern Olympics since their inception in 1896.
  • Olympic gymnastics began as a purely male pursuit, with women participants not taking part until 1928.
  • Louis Smith's bronze medal in the pommel horse at the 2008 Olympics was Great Britain’s first medal in the sport since the women's team finished third in 1928.
  • At these London Olympics there are 14 gold medals on offer. There are team events, individual all-around events and individual apparatus events.
  • A ‘perfect ten’ is no longer the top score; gymnasts are now given two separate scores for difficulty and execution which are then added together.
