At the 2000 Summer Olympics, three different gymnastics disciplines were contested: artistic gymnastics, rhythmic gymnastics, and trampoline. The artistic gymnastics and trampoline events were held at the Sydney SuperDome on 16–25 September and 22–23 September, respectively. The rhythmic gymnastics events were held at Pavilion 3 of the Sydney Olympic Park on 28 September – 1 October.

Artistic gymnastics[edit]

Format of competition[edit]

No compulsory routines were performed in artistic gymnastics at the 2000 Summer Olympics. Instead, all participating gymnasts, including those who were not part of a team, participated in a qualification round. The results of this competition determined which teams and individuals participated in the remaining competitions, which included:

  • The team competition, in which the six highest scoring teams from qualifications competed. Each team of six gymnasts could have up to five gymnasts perform on each apparatus, and only the four highest scores counted toward the team total.
  • The all-around competition, in which the thirty-six highest scoring individuals in the all-around competed. Each country was limited to three gymnasts in the all-around final.
  • The event finals, in which the eight highest scoring individuals on each apparatus competed. Each country was limited to two gymnasts in each apparatus final.

Women's events[edit]

Andreea Raducan was the original winner of the Women's All-Around competition, but her gold medal was stripped when she tested positive for a banned substance contained in a cold medicine.[1] The Federation Internationale de Gymnastique Executive Board announced on 27 February 2010 following an investigation into the Chinese team for violations of the minimum age for senior gymnastics competitions (must be 16). The FIG noted Dong Fangxiao was entered as 17 years old when she was actually 14. Her 1999 World Championships titles have been stripped. In April 2010, nearly ten years after the results, the IOC officially stripped China of its women's team medal. The now-third place team from the United States was awarded the Bronze at the 2010 national championships, held at the XL Center in Hartford, CT.[2]
