WOMEN'S ARTISTIC GYMNASTICS (WAG)

What is Women's Artistic Gymnastics?

Women’s Artistic Gymnastics is a creative blend of daring and control; powerful yet refined, elegant yet strong. Mastery on the four apparatus requires skills that flip, balance, swing and soar.

The four competitive apparatus in Women’s Artistic Gymnastics are:

Vault – a 20m sprint to the vaulting table followed by springing onto and off the hands and landing perfectly on the other side. Extra rotations at any point increase the difficulty.

Uneven Bars – requiring strength, precision, rhythm, concentration and courage; the gymnast moves from one bar to the other, alternating grip changes, releases and regrasps, saltos and changes of direction with circular swings.

Beam – balance at its most extreme, adding an extra element to the acrobatic sequences, gymnastic jumps and turns. It is an exercise not only of flexibility, but also of concentration, rhythm and expression.

Floor – a creative combination of expressive dance, daring acrobatics and powerful gymnastics performed to music, where each gymnast communicates her own personality and style.

Women’s Artistic Gymnastics:

  • Enhances co-ordination and agility, for body awareness and balance
  • Develops posture and confident body movement, including the ability to land safely
  • Enhances creativity and builds self-confidence, for sport and life
  • Develops strength and flexibility, for life’s constant challenges
  • Develops healthy minds and bodies for now and later life
