Men's Artistic Gymnastics

Men's Artistic Gymnastics

Gymnastics was born in Ancient Greece, where physical fitness was a highly prized attribute and body development was pursued through athletics in its purest form: running and jumping. The Ancient Romans also practised Gymnastics but with an eye on physically preparing their soldiers to be unstoppable in battle. Pommel Horse was one of the original ancient events introduced by the Romans to teach soldiers complex ways to mount and dismount a horse.

Men's Artistic Gymnastics requires gymnasts to perform on six apparatus - Floor Exercise, Pommel Horse, Still Rings, Vault, Parallel Bars and Horizontal Bar. To excel in these apparatus, one would need to have a combination of agility, control, coordination, endurance, flexibility, mobility and strength.
