Poise, power, elegance, control – gymnastics combines three fantastic disciplines to deliver an incredible spectacle of physical ability.
Events take place in artistic, trampoline and rhythmic gymnastics. At Rio 2016, Team GB qualified full men’s and women’s artistic gymnastics teams (five per team), two places for Team GB in the women’s trampoline event and one in the men’s event.
The men’s artistic gymnastics team were Louis Smith MBE, Max Whitlock, Nile Wilson, Brinn Bevan and Kristian Thomas. The women’s artistic gymnastics team were, Becky Downie, Ellie Downie, Claudia Fragapane, Ruby Harrold and Amy Tinkler, while the trampoline gymnasts were Kat Driscoll, Bryony Page and Nathan Bailey.
Team GB gymnasts finished the Rio Olympic Games with seven medals across all three gymnastics disciplines represented, making it the most successful Games to date and set the bar high for Tokyo 2020.
