What Is Gymnastics?

Gymnastics combines strength, flexibility and artistry. Competition is offered in men’s and women’s events in artistic gymnastics utilizing beams, bars, rings, vault and floor exercise equipment.

As in all Special Olympics sports, athletes are grouped into competition divisions according to ability level, age and gender when appropriate. In gymnastics, athletes also compete in specific levels.

Athletes in Illinois who participate in gymnastics compete locally at a Region Qualifying event. Gold medal winners are eligible to advance to state championships at the Summer Games held in Normal in June.
