Arms, legs, shoulders, back, chest and abdominal muscles are pushed to the limit during a complex series of movements and tests of strength.

Women contest the vault, the floor, uneven bars, and balance beam. The men contest the vault, the floor, parallel bars, horizontal bar, still rings and the pommel horse. Medals are awarded to the best individual performance on each apparatus.

In the Individual All-Around event competitors compete on each apparatus and their scores are then combined to see who wins.

In the Team All-Around event, each nation’s team of athletes compete on each apparatus, and the scores are added to find the winning nation.
