Gymnastics Trampoline in Olympics
Gymnastics Trampoline has been inducted as a discipline of gymnastics
at the Olympic Games as of 1 January, 1999. Trampoline competitions for
both men and women were included in the Olympic program. Gymnastics
Trampoline made debut during the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games.
Origin of the Discipline
The discipline of Gymnastics traces itself to ancient Greece a couple
of thousands years back, when the gymnasium was the centre of cultural
activity. People assembled in gymnasiums not only to practise sport, but
to understand art, music and philosophy. With passage of time, the sport
has evolved into its present form.
