History of Gymnastics
One Famous Athlete: Gabby Douglas
Gymnastics has been around for over 2,000 years.The first large scale competition was in the 1896s olympics in Athens,Greece where men competed in many different categories. The very first women's team was debuted in the 1928 Olympics. Gymnastics is still a popular sport today.
At first, women didn't participate in the sport, but that changed after World War 2. Another change is that the sport has become more complex.
