Sport review

Rhythmic gymnastics and artistic swimming are the only two Pan American sports in which only women participate. It is a discipline based on motion that combines dance, artistic gymnastics and acrobatics. Athletes perform in short routines in a 13 x 13 m mat. Four routines with different apparatus (hoop, ball, clubs and ribbon) are held in individual events. In team events, groups of five athletes compete in two routines — one routine with five athletes with the same apparatus and another routine with a combination of two and the same apparatus and three with another. Both individual and group events compete for a medal in each apparatus and in the all-around competition. In Lima 2019, we will see 46 athletes on stage. The US leads the medal count with 20 gold medals. In Lima 2019, this sport will be held at the Villa El Salvador Sports Center.

History

Rhythmic gymnastics first appeared in the 19th century. However, the first experimental competitions occurred in Europe in the 1930s. In 1964 the first world championships took place in Budapest, Hungary.
