Women Gymnasts

Women’s gymnastics is a very popular form of gymnastics in the world.The first women competed in artistic gymnastics in the 1928 Olympics. The sport was very different than it is today, however: there was only a team event. In 1950, at the World Championships, women’s artistic gymnastics debuted in its present form, with competition in team, all-around and the individual events. Top artistic gymnasts must have many different attributes: strength, balance, flexibility, air sense and grace are some of the most important. They also must possess psychological qualities such as the courage to attempt difficult tricks and to compete under intense pressure, and the discipline and work ethic to practice a routine many times.
