I Want to Compete in the Olympics

Although every country’s gymnastics federation might have its own rules to select gymnasts for their Olympic  team, here’s a brief high level guide of the stages you have to go through to become a member of your country’s Olympic team.

First of all, artistic gymnastics (women and men), rhythmic gymnastics, and trampoline gymnastics are recognized as Olympic disciplines by the International Gymnastics Federation. Aerobics, acrobatics, and gymnastics for all are non-Olympic disciplines.

Typically, to become a national team member a gymnast must first work her way through a series of qualifying meets, one of which would be your country’s national championship. Olympic and World Championship teams for artistic and rhythmic gymnastics (individual) are selected from the Elite level. To become an Elite level gymnast you will typically go from Level 1 through Level 10 and competed in your country’s qualifying events.

The International Gymnastics Federation has detailed competition description and rules that apply to artistic gymnastics and rhythmic gymnastics and could be followed by each country’s gymnastics federation.

Competition description and rules for artistic gymnastics.

Competition description and rules for rhythmic gymnastics.

You may find guidelines and procedures specific to your country by visiting your federation’s website.

Working your way to the Olympics does not sound any easy but hopefully this brief guide will encourage you to keep working hard to reach those dreams.

What’s a Good Gymnastics Score Now?

On non-elite levels (Levels 1 to 10) it is fairly simple knowing what a good score is, the closest you get to 10.0 the better, because these levels still use the scoring system based on a maximum of 10.0.

For elite competitive levels, as a general rule, scores in the 15 – 16 range are considered good, with scores over 16 being exceptional.

Why is it that scores on the elite levels go beyond the 10.0 mark?

Because of the scoring used for those levels includes two components, the difficulty score plus the execution score; all elite levels use a scoring system established by the FIG (Fédération Internationale de Gymnastique) in effect since January 2006 .

On elite levels there are two separate panels of judges that come up with their score between 0 and 10, and then add it together.

In simple terms here’s how elite level scoring works:

Panel D – starts from 0, adding points for requirements, difficulty, and connections.

Panel E – starts from 10 and deducts for execution and artistry.

The scores, D and E, are then added together, typically resulting in a final score between 12.0 and 17.0 for the gymnast.

How To Score Thousandths?

When your score gets so precise down to the thousandth, you can record that score with Artistik.

1) Tap the thousandths button on the upper right corner.

2) Tap the number of thousandths that you need in your score. The thousandths will show in red.

3) Enter the major part of your score by swiping up and down the big digits.

4) Tap the apparatus you wish to score for (tap the switch icon if you need apparatus for men).

You can change your thousandths at any time during scoring. To go back to zero thousandths, repeat steps 1 and 2 but tap .000 instead.

How To Remove a Scorecard?

Although we prefer not to remove scorecards, you can delete a scorecard whenever you wish.

1) Scroll to the scorecard you wish to remove by swiping your scorecards left or right.

2) Tap the trash bin icon. A delete confirmation sheet will show up.

3) Confirm the delete operation by tapping the red button.

Because delete operations can’t be undone, we encourage the reuse of scorecards instead by editing its details and date; that way you reduce the risk of accidentally removing scorecards.

How To Switch To Men Scoring?

When you first launch Artistik, it shows a scorecard for women but, you can add a scorecard for men.

1) Go to the Scoring screen. A women scorecard is shown.

2) Tap the switch icon next to the apparatus icons. Apparatus for men will appear.

3) Tap the apparatus you wish to score for; a scorecard for men will be added.

Now you can enter scores for men.

To go back to women scoring, tap the switch icon and apparatus for women will appear.

How To Share Meet Results?

You can share your meet results by e-mail.
