A Games ever-present
One of the few sports to have been staged in every single Games since the inaugural event, in Athens in 1896, artistic gymnastics was contested only by men for the first thirty-two years. However, in Amsterdam in 1928, women were allowed to show off their skills as competitors too. The rhythmic events, which were added to the program in Los Angeles in 1984, are only open to women; however, both genders compete in the trampoline events, which debuted in Sydney in 2000. Gymnasts can win gold medals in several different disciplines, including floor exercise, horizontal bar, pommel horse, parallel bars, vault, uneven bars and balance beam, while earlier Games also included the likes of rope climbing and club swinging. Alongside the individual competitions in all three disciplines, there are also team medals up for grabs in artistic and rhythmic gymnastics. Soviet Union lead the all-time gymnastics medal table with an astonishing seventy-three golds, followed by the United States, Japan, China and Romania.
