Trivia


In ancient times, gymnastics competitions included wrestling and dueling with bulls – and since the men competed naked, women were banned from taking part and watching.


Before it became a sport in its own right, trampolines were used for training astronauts and preparing athletes for other disciplines.

Rhythmic gymnastics made its Olympic debut at Los Angeles 1984 and remains, along with synchronised swimming, an exclusively female competition in the Olympic Games.
