Gymnastics is a sport which includes athletic tasks requiring training in coordination, agility, strength and balance. Popularized in ancient Greece, gymnastics began as a form of training and slowly became an exhibition of strength and agility in both groups and individuals. There are multiple events which are meant to exhibit gymnastic ability, including routines such as a vault, uneven bars, balancing beams, or floor events which resemble a dance. Having never been absent from the Summer Olympic Games, gymnasts and their routines continue to be one of the most anticipated and watched events.

Gymnastics started to see a major interest as a sport in the 19th century but dates back all the way to the Greeks in the fifth century BC which was used for hand-to-hand combat by soldiers to increase muscle development.
