About the disciplines:
Gymnasts who excel in this discipline combine a high degree of spatial awareness with power, strength, coordination and courage. The gymnast has a 25 metre track on which to perform a series of somersaults and twists. High scoring runs include no less than two double somersaults with additional twisting elements.
Gymnasts perform routines, which contain a variety of twists, bounces and somersaults. Precise technique and perfect body control are the hallmarks of a good routine, with judges evaluating gymnasts on degree of difficulty, execution and flight time. While this is an individual sport, at competitions there is a synchronized event where athletes compete the same routine side by side, aiming to be completely in time with one another. Pairings are usually designed so that that skill level of the athletes complements one another.
Double Mini Trampoline (DMT)
Double Mini is a combination of gymnastics, trampolining and athletics. Similar to the vault apparatus in artistic gymnastics, athletes sprint down a track, before jumping onto the DMT to perform two skills in a row with numerous twists and flips prior to dismounting onto a landing mat.
