Gymnastics

Four gymnastics events were held at the 1912 Summer Olympics in Stockholm, Sweden. Including the display the competitions were held between July 6 and July 15, 1912. All events took place in the Olympiastadion.

Amateur definitions[edit]

The definition for the gymnastic competitions was:

An amateur is one:

  • who has never, for pecuniary gain, taken part in a public competition or display;
  • who has never taken part in a competition for money prizes;
  • who, in all other respects, is an amateur according to the rules of his own country.

Gymnastic teachers and leaders, even though they receive payment as such, are regarded as amateurs.
