Women’s Artistic is a disciplined sport, which requires strength, flexibility, stamina, co-ordination and courage combined with artistry.
Female artistic gymnasts compete on vault, bars, beam and floor.
Each vault is awarded a value according to its difficulty. The height, length and accuracy of the vault are of crucial importance together with a controlled landing.
Swinging and continuous movements are required on this apparatus. Routines on this apparatus includes movements with turns, movements in different directions, release and re-catch and changes from high bar to low bar and low to high.
The beam is 5 metres long, 10cm wide and 1.25 metres from the floor. A routine on the beam is an artistic combination of acrobatic elements, gymnastic leaps, jumps and turns.
The floor exercise is performed on a 12m x 12m sprung surface covered in carpet. The routine is performed to music and combines dance movements and sequences with a variety of tumbling and acrobatic elements
