2024 Olympic Gymnastics Venues

The artistic gymnastics and trampolining will be held at the Bercy Arena, while the Porte de la Chapelle Arena will host the Rhythmic gymnastics.

Both venues are in the French capital, Paris.

When was Gymnastics introduced to the Olympics?

Artistic gymnastics has been part of the Olympics since the first modern games in Athens in 1896, but female competition was not introduced until the 1928 Games in Amsterdam.

Rhythmic gymnastics was contested for the first time at the 1984 Olympics in Los Angeles, while trampolining gained its place in the sporting extravaganza for the first time in Sydney in 2000.

Olympic Gymnastics Format

What is the Olympic Gymnastics scoring system?

The gymnastics scoring system is quite complicated as it involves an execution score and a difficulty score, which are added together to provide a final mark.

Each execution score starts at 10.0 with points deducted for errors such as steps on landing, flexed feet or bent knees.

The difficulty score starts at zero, but points are awarded for composition requirements, difficulty of the elements and the connection value.

The judging panel is divided into three groups, one for each of the execution and difficult elements and then another reference panel.

The gymnast scoring the highest score wins.

In the team event, there are two qualifying rounds where four athletes compete in each discipline and the best three scores are taken.

The top eight teams then go through to the final, where each country will have three competitors on apparatus and the best combined scores will take the medals.

2024 Olympic Gymnastics British Prospects

Both the women’s and the men’s teams have gained places at the Olympics after the women took silver and the men took the bronze medal.

The most high-profile performer in the British team is Max Whitlock, who will be hoping for another successful Games after twice triumphing in the pommel horse. He has already said that this will be his final performance on the biggest stage.

Great Britain’s top hope in the women’s competition is British all-round champion Ondina Achampong from Aylesbury, who also took national honours in the beam, floor and bar disciplines recently.

When were the most recent British Olympic Gymnastics golds?

Whitlock is the only British artistic gymnast to win an Olympic gold medal and he has done so three times.

He was twice successful in the 2016 Games in Rio de Janeiro, when he won both the pommel horse and the floor. He also took a bronze medal in the individual event that year and repeated his horse triumph last time out in Tokyo.

Great Britain has never won a women’s gold in artistic gymnastics and have won a bronze on four occasions - twice in the team event in 1928 and in Tokyo three years ago, while individual thirds were gained by Beth Tweddle on the uneven bars in 2012 and by Amy Tickley on the floor in 2016.

Bryony Page earned a silver in the women’s trampolining in Rio and followed it with a bronze in Tokyo, but Great Britain has never won a medal in rhythmic gymnastics.

Team GB's Olympic Gymnastics Record

How many medals have Team GB captured in Olympic Gymnastics history?

Great Britain have won 18 medals in gymnastics, including two in trampolining, with three golds, four silvers and 11 bronzes.

2024 Olympic Gymnastics Favourites

Who are the favourites to win the Gymnastics golds in Paris 2024?

Prices are not yet available for the gymnastics competitions at the Paris Olympics, but defending men’s all-round champion Daiki Hashimoto will hope he can replicate the glory he enjoyed in his home country of Japan three years ago by making a successful defence.

Silver medallist Ruoteng Xiao will be hoping to go one better as he leads what is set to be a strong team from China into the games.

The overall women’s competition is intriguing as reigning champion Sunisa Lee has only just returned to competition after kidney problems and she looks set to take on fellow American and legend of the sport, Simone Biles, who already has seven Olympic gold medals.
