Gymnastics is a sport involving the performance of exercises requiring strength, flexibility, balance, agility, endurance and control. Gymnastics evolved from exercises used by the ancient Greeks that included skills for mounting and dismounting a horse, and from circus performance skills.

THE ANCIENT GREEKS BELIEVED GYMNASTICS TO BE THE PERFECT SYMMETRY BETWEEN MIND AND BODY. MODERN GYMNASTICS EVOLVED AT THE END OF THE 19TH CENTURY. 

REBIRTH:  The term "artistic gymnastics" emerged in the early 1800s to distinguish free-flowing styles from techniques used in military training. Gymnastic competitions began to flourish in schools and athletic clubs across Europe and made a fitting return when the Olympic Games were revived in Athens in 1896.
