Know How Game Rules Sport Stars Special reports Disabled Sports Extreme Sports Olympics Speciality Events Gymnastics, Greco/Roman origin of an Olympic sport. Gymnastics is defined as exercises for the balanced development of the body, or the competitive sport derived from these exercises. Olympic gymnastics is split into completely different disciplines for men and women. Men compete on pommel horse, rings, parallel bars, vault, horizontal bar, floor exercises, and on the trampoline. Women compete on the balance beam, vault, floor exercises, uneven parallel bars, in rhythmic gymnastics and on the trampoline.
The ancient Greeks (who invented the building called a gymnasium for them) and the Romans practiced gymnastics, but it was not until the 20th century that gymnastics became widespread. Their eventual success came after their adoption for American military training, their placement on the program of the revived Olympic Games in 1896, and the inclusion of physical education in the curriculum of many schools.
Gymnastics for men usually emphasized power and strength, while those for women focused on grace of movement. In 1972, however, Olga Korbut, a 17-year-old gymnast from the Soviet Union, captivated everyone with her innovative and explosive routines. At the Olympics, her diminutive prettiness enthralled the Munich audience, and it was here that she became the first person ever to do a backward somersault off the uneven parallel bars. In all she collected three gold medals, for the balance beam, floor exercise and team events, and a silver medal for the uneven parallel bars. Korbut and her coaches invented two new gymnastic moves, the Korbut Salto and the Korbut Flip. She became a role model for many children all over the world and local gymnastic clubs reported a massive surge of young girls wanting to join.
