Population

 

Amateur gymnasts

Innumerable amateur gymnasts of all ages regularly practice Gymnastics in a club.

This population represents the base of the FIG pyramid, on which the elite gymnasts are supported. These gymnasts at the base are also actors and ambassadors of Gymnastics for All in the world and are those that make up our audience, as spectators in the venues or as TV viewers.

Licenced gymnasts

Since the Artistic Gymnastics World Championships in 2009 in London (GBR), each gymnast is required to submit their licence on arrival at the competition venue. The figures in the table indicate the number of gymnasts engaged at international level in each discipline. Gymnastics for All is not affected by licences.

Population by gender

FIG, in all its activities, is predominantly female. The table shows the number of active age group and senior athletes with a valid FIG licence by gender in the different disciplines.
