Rhythmic Gymnastics is a sport of elegance and artistry. Competitors perform routines involving elegant and strategic maneuvers. The sport requires extreme focus especially when performers throw their handheld apparatus several meters into the air. The most important part is then catching the equipment back after performing many leaps and stunts. The sport demands the athletes to be strong, skilled, and agile.
The Rhythmic Gymnastics Competition became a part of the Olympics at the Los Angeles 1984 Games. The Group competition in this sport was introduced in Atlanta in 1996.
