Feel the rhythm 

Persistence, discipline and willpower – these are the fundamental qualities one should have in order to achieve the maximum in Rhythmic Gymnastics. Of course, a lack of flexibility, coordination and of charisma does not necessarily lead to huge successes neither. The gymnasts should be able to impress and carry away the audience with their extravagant contortions.

Above all, the jury wants to be satisfied with an excellent command of technique while handling the apparatus, as they are responsible for the fair evaluation of the performance appraisal in the Individual as well as in the Group Competition. Before the FIG (Fédération Internationale de Gymnastique) could find a compromise concerning the final name Rhythmic Gymnastics, the sport had to go through several name changes. As this form originate from classic competition gymnastics, but seem to appear more modern than its origin, the FIG started to call it Modern Gymnastics. However, apparently the term was too banal. As the gymnasts perform a routine harmonious in its motion with an according sense of rhythm and grace, they hence decided on the name Rhythmic Gymnastics.

Gymnastics is a newly established discipline and does therefore not have an extraordinary history of past developments. If one would search for the origin of the virth and progress of this particular sport, it would lead him to the former Soviet Union because the very first tournaments took place there. Even today, athletes from the former Soviet Union still dominate the world-wide top-ranking.

With time, it started to establish itself globally and gained popularity as the very first World Championship was held in Budapest in 1963. From then onwards, Rhythmic Gymnastics became more and more internationally represented and an increasing number of tournaments was held. For instance: 1978 the European Championship, the Goodwill Games, Corbeil International etc. When the sport was made an Olympic Discipline in 1984 the sport finally stepped out of the shadow of Artistic Gymnastics and became known as an individual sport.

Basic information

The sport’s governing body consists of the Fédération Internationale de Gymnastique, shortly FIG, and of the Union Européenne de Gymnastique, UEG. The performance is judged by three juries whose members are obliged to stick to the evaluation rules written down on 240 pages in the notorious bible of Rhythmic Gymnastics. This bible is officially called Code de Pointage, which not only contains the international system of evaluation and of deduction of points, but also consists of the detailed description of basic and mandatory elements. In addition, it describes the rules of comportment for trainers, juries and gymnasts.

The policies of the Code are changed, updated or readapted every four years. Due to unfair performance appraisal, a reform of the complicated rules was made in 1995 in order to make the valuation more lucid and comprehensible for everyone, both gymnasts and audience.

The jury

Rhythmic Gymnastics focuses on three essential things, which are judged by three sub-juries. Those are: The difficulty, the artistic effect and the execution. The D-Jury gives points for difficulties performed, meaning the number and category of the body elements. The A-Jury’s centre of attention lays on artistic quality, specific elements handled with the apparatus, the interpretation as well as the originality of the performance whereas the E-Jury focuses on the exact execution of the routine.


Performance Appraisal

Each jury has the power to reward up to 10 points for each routine which can be added up to a maximum of 20 points. The elements evaluated comply with a special form for the routines consisting of a figurative Rhythmic Gymnastics symbol notation First the artistic effect and the difficulties are valued with the A-mark; the sum of these is divided by two. Then the B-mark for the execution is added to the points that resultet from the division made before. In contrast to the A-mark, the points of the B-mark are not added up for good performance, but are deducted for mistakes since the reformation of the rules in 1995. According to this, it is more likely to receive the full 10 points for a precise and pinpoint presentation. Crucial mistakes, the loss of the apparatus, or the involuntary step-over the red-marked boundary are highly fined. Want to give it a try and bet online? BonusBonusBonus will lead you by the hand.

The Individual class is made of the All Around Competition composed of the four classified performances with four different apparatus. The best eight of the ranking of one apparatus performed - but not more than half of the participants of the “Seniors” and the “Juniors” - qualify for the Individual All Around Final.

The Group Competition includes a performance of a group consisting of five gymnasts (training sessions are held with six though). If the group presents only one routine, all of them handle the same apparatus. In case a group performs twice, they must carry out the second presentation combining two different apparatus; for instance three ribbons with two pairs of clubs. The various combinations of the apparatus, as well as their order of appearance, are stipulated by the FIG. If one chooses to perform Rhythmic Gymnastics as a serious and competitive sport already in primary school (which is recommendable) one needs a lot of spare time for the training and ballet sessions. With enough commitment and the sacrifices it takes a young girl or boy can make it fast to the so-called 'Competitions of the Students' step 3, 2 and then 1. At the age of around 14 to 16, depending on the country, she or he can perform as a 'Junior' and finally as a 'Senior', also called the notorious 'Elite'. Obivously the classification is not only based on the skills of a gymnast but also on his or her age.

According to these facts, you can tell that compared to other sports, gymnasts are called Senior fast, although they still are very young. Consequently, the term senior does not necessarily have to mean something negative; it means that you belong to the Top class. Thus, gymnasts act out their sport with the knowledge that at the age of approximately 20 they are already too old for this business unless they perform at an internationally recognized level.


Basically, there are five apparatus, one hast to learn to handle durin his or her career in Rhythmic Gymnastics: rope, ball, hoop, clubs, ribbon. Each routine must contain well-coordinated elements that characterize the apparatus among other body technical basics like balances, leaps and pirouettes. The apparatus must be integrated into the performance and should reinforce the routine in its elegance; it should liven up the presentation and not be kept cramped in the hand. The international standards of the respective apparatus are standardized in its very detail by the FIG; a noncompliance to the strict policies of the standard-measurements of the apparatus can consequently result in a disqualification. The only thing that a gymnast has control over, is the colour of her or his apparatus.

Routine, Music and Match surface

As mentioned above, the routine should be precise in its performance and it should include rhythmic and harmonic body motions. However, in order not to lose its elegance and not to be compared too much with artistic gymnastics, only a certain number of acrobatic elements is permitted, this number is stipulated in the Code de Pointage. Any kind of the individual performance should last between 75 and a maximum of 90 seconds, whereas the group performance should be between 120 and 150 seconds long. Moreover, a policy says it is not allowed to suddenly interrupt the performance in its flow of motion, only if it is an artistic point made on purpose. Furthermore, there are a lot of strict policies one should observe when choosing the kind of music: only compositions with an instrumental character are allowed.

Football 888sportThe music should be personalized for the choreography, as the music should blend in well both with the choreography and the character of the routine. The events take place indoors in a gym, which should have an altitude of at least eight meters in order to avoid interruptions through hitting the ceiling with the apparatus. The match surface is made out of a carpet including a special resilient structure, which the gymnasts can use to their benefit in order to demonstrate their maximum ability of jumping. This carpet, which measures about 13x13 metres, is surrounded by a light-red line marking the boundaries of the performance area, which is only allowed to enter with special half-shoes. The whole performance area should be used which means that one should vary the balance of her or his elements. It also is necessary to be careful because everything that is shot or waved outside the border the red line, is fined with a high deduction of points.
