Jump to: navigation, search

Qualification for gymnastics events at the 2012 Summer Olympics was based on the results of the three world gymnastics championships (rhythmic, artistic and trampoline) held in autumn 2011, and Olympic Test Events to be held in January 2012 at the North Greenwich Arena. In addition, the Fédération Internationale de Gymnastique and the IOC Tripartite Commission for Gymnastics allocated places to ensure certain minimum levels of representation.

  • Great Britain as host is entitled to send a team to compete in the Rhythmic Gymnastics Group event, British Gymnastics and the British Olympic Aassociation (BOA) announced that team would only be sent if the team achieved a benchmark score at the test event. In the event, they narrowly failed to do so, and British Gymnastics announced it would not nominate the team to the BOA for inclusion. The GB Rhythmic Gymnastics group successfully appealed on 5 March 2012. The place offered by the BOA was subsequently taken up by British Gymnastics.
