In the history of the Olympic Games :

Since its introduction to the Olympic program, gymnastics has been the scene of historic moments and legendary performances, helping to forge the spirit and magic of the Games. Present since the first modern Games in Athens in 1896, this discipline was initially reserved for men. Women's competitions were introduced in 1928 at the Amsterdam Games.

The gymnastics program underwent numerous evolutions until the middle of the 20th century, after which it remained relatively stable, with the last major changes occurring in 1960 for women and 1936 for men. Historically, Japan dominated Olympic gymnastics in the 1960s and 1970s, before giving way to theSoviet Union andEast Germany. Today, the dominant powers in artistic gymnastics include Japan, the USA, Russia and China.

Our French athletes :

French athletes have often shone in this discipline, in the image of their predecessors who made their mark with grace and technical skill. Among those who qualified were Mélanie De Jesus Dos Santos, accompanied by Coline Devillard and Lorette Charpy, each in their respective disciplines (all-around, vault and uneven bars). Three champions who are particularly eagerly awaited in Paris, carrying the nation's hopes on their shoulders. The men's gymnastics team unfortunately failed to qualify for the Olympic Games.
