Gymnastics was developed in ancient Greece, in Sparta and Athens, and was used as method to prepare men for warfare, due to the flexibility, strength and agility benefits.
The word gymnastics derives from the common Greek adjective “Gymnazo”, whose meaning is to “train naked”, “train in gymnastic exercise”, generally “to train, to exercise”.
The first Olympics is traditionally dated to 776 BC, a festival in Olympia, where they showcased these skills. They continued to be celebrated at this festival when Greece came under Roman rule, until the emperor Theodosius suppressed them in 393 AD. The first “modern” Olympic Games was held in 1896. Apparatus and events for both men and women weren’t standardised in the modern format or uniform grading structures put in place until 1954.
