Men's Artistic

Men’s Artistic Gymnastics is an extremely demanding discipline based upon an athlete’s precision and agility. Men and women are judged within their own respective category and use a range of apparatuses to perform their stunning routines.

  • Judging criteria varies and is based upon: execution, creativity and difficulty of routine, and the way they utilize their apparatus.
  • Deductions are made for improper footing and landing, lengthy pauses, falls, poor technique.
