In 1928 Women’s Artistic Gymnastics first appeared as a team event at the Olympics. From a team of 12 gymnasts, 4 were affiliated with Yorkshire Clubs. The region’s long and proud history in Women’s Artistic Gymnastics was centre stage.
In the intervening years Yorkshire’s strong relationship with the sport has continued producing medalists at all levels, even though the sport looks very different now. Increasingly complex skills on the four pieces, Vault, Bars, Beam and Floor, sets the gymnasts, the coaches, and all those involved the continuous and rewarding challenge of progressing forwards.
Women’s Artistic Gymnastics in Yorkshire is supported by the Women’s Technical Committee, a group of volunteers, who are responsible not only for this website, but for supporting the development of the sport at all levels within the region.
