Special Olympics gymnastics combines strength, flexibility and artistry. Competitions are offered for men in the artistic events and women in artistic and rhythmic events. Male and female gymnasts may compete in all events offered (all-around) or may be specialists, competing in one, two or more (but not all) events. As in all Special Olympics Minnesota sports, athletes are grouped in competition divisions according to ability level, age and gender.
