In artistic gymnastics, men participate in six events: floor exercises, pommel horse, rings, vault, parallel bars and horizontal bar. Women participate in four events: vault, uneven bars, balance beam and floor exercises. Rhythmic gymnastics is performed only by women, and involves choreographed movements to music using apparatus such as rope, hoop, ball, clubs and ribbon.
