History of Gymnastics

Gymnastics originated in Ancient Greece, which used to be a highly military focused society. Practicing Gymnastics was considered to be ideal training for soldiers, who were trained in both agility and strength to prepare them for battle.

One of the skills obtained by practicing Gymnastics was mounting and dismounting a horse swiftly and properly. Another one was Sword Fighting, which require a high level of agility and flexibility.

In the Renaissance and through the 18th and 19th centuries, Gymnastics was a common type of exercise for boys and young men, it was considered to be an important part of a healthy life.

In 1881, the FIG was founded in Liege, Belgium and remains the oldest still existing international sports organisation in the world.

When the first modern Olympics were organised in 1896, Mens Gymnastics was such a popular sport that it was one of the first disciplines to be included.
