A sport which is divided into two different parts : Artistic Gymnastics -the most popular sport at the Olympics after Athletics - and Rhythmic Gymnastics - also in the Olympics but not as popular and classified as a different sport.
In artistic gymnastics there are 8 different apparatus - Vault, Uneven Bars, Beam and Floor for the women and Floor, Pommel Horse, Rings, Vault, Parallel Bars and High Bar for the men.
Exercises include multiple somersaults/somersaults with twists, jumps and dance elements. Requires great power, flexibility, determination and will power, and a high level of fitness.
Rhythmic Gymnastics, or RSG for short, in a nutshell, involves women - men don't do RSG - who are too tall for AG bending their bodies into grotesque shapes while chucking either a ball, club, rope or ribbon in the air. Requires great flexibility. Judging at international competitions is often biased and fixed, and the very top gymnasts always seem to get temporarily banned for drug abuse...
