Women's Artistic

Women’s Artistic gymnastics (WAG) is an extremely demanding discipline based upon an athlete’s precision and agility. Women are judged within their own respective categories (age and level) 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 landings, inadequate amplitude and execution, lengthy pauses, falls, poor technique.

Women’s Artistic Gymnastics includes the following four events:

Vault:   

Gymnasts fly through the air executing precise twists and somersaults over a table shaped structure.

Uneven Bars:

Gymnasts perform continuous movement between two raised bars of uneven height resulting in a series of swings, twists, somersaults and handstands.

Balance Beam:

Rhythmic and fluid, dance and acrobatic movements are performed across the length of a 4-inch wide beam.

Floor Exercise:

Creative dance elements and tumbling manoeuvres performed to music utilize the entire floor space.
