The Special Olympics Minnesota gymnastics program 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 sports, athletes are grouped in competition divisions according to ability level, age and gender.
Men’s All Around
Men’s Floor Exercise
Men’s Horizontal Bar
Men’s Parallel Bar
Men’s Pommel Horse
Women’s All Around
Women’s Balance Beam
Women’s Floor Exercise
Women’s Uneven Bars
Athletes are assigned divisions based on gender, level, age group and ability. In some cases, athletes from consecutive age groups will be combined into the same division to provide for better competition for all athletes.
Each event is scored using the SOI Gymnastics Rules.
