Rhythmic Gymnastic, or RG, can be presented by 2 words: Art and Sport. Gymnasts have to develop two main qualities: dancing (to be a perfect ballerina on the carpet, full of artistic expression) and technical abilities (flexibility, dynamism, stamina). It is most frequently practiced by women (even though we can find men rhythmic gymnasts in Japan and USA).
This sport requires the use of apparatuses, during a determined time and with the help of a music. Gymnasts can compete alone (individual competition) or by groups (5 gymnasts form a group; in some countries, there are competitions for two gymnasts).
