From parallel bars to pommel horse
Artistic gymnastics graced the very first Games in Athens, in 1896, and has remained in its program ever since. Initially only men were given the chance to compete in its various disciplines but in Amsterdam in 1928 women were allowed to take part too. The men’s event features horizontal and parallel bars, pommel horse, and the rings. The women’s includes the balance beam and uneven bars, while both genders also aim for gold in the floor exercise and vault. There are also all-around individual and team competitions for both the men and women. The Soviet Union currently lead the men’s all-time gold medal tally with 39, with Japan, the United States, China and Switzerland making up the top five. The same nation also tops the women’s gold table ahead of Romania, Team USA, Czech Republic, and Hungary.
