Men's artistic

 

Men’s Artistic is a disciplined sport which requires strength, mobility, endurance and co-ordination.

Routines are performed on six pieces of apparatus; floor exercise, pommel horse, rings, vault, parallel bars and high bar.

Floor

Men’s artistic floor exercise must combine a variety of tumbling and acrobatic elements. The gymnasts perform the routine on a 12 x 12 metre sprung surface covered in carpet.

Pommel Horse

The pommel horse routine is physically and mentally demanding and the aim is for it to be a smooth continuous series of continuous movements using all parts of the horse.

Rings

Rings routines include a variety of movements demonstrating strength and support. The gymnast performs a series of swings and holds with both forward and backward elements and the finishes with an acrobatic dismount.

Vault

The vault should requires a very powerful and fast run up to enable the gymnast to perform a spectacular vault which will include one or more rotations finishing with a controlled landing.

Parallel Bars

The parallel bars requires a combination of swinging movements and strength holds. The gymnast travels along, above and below the bars.

High Bar

The final, and most exciting, piece of apparatus is the high bar. A high bar routine consists of continuous swinging movements, changes in grip and release and catch elements. The routine finishes with a spectacular dismount and a controlled landing.
