Gymnastics have been a part of every modern Olympic competition. Today, there are three disciplines: artistic, rhythmic, and trampoline. Artistic gymnasts perform routines on different apparatuses (including the floor, above). Rhythmic gymnasts perform floor routines with hand-held apparatuses, such as a ribbon or hoop. Trampolinists perform routines judged by difficulty, technique, and flight time.
