There are two types of Gymnastic discipline in the Commonwealth Games; Artistic and rhythmic. Artistic gymnastics is a core sport at the Games, first introduced in 1978. Men and women compete in the Artistic discipline whilst only women compete in rhythmic gymnastics (which was first introduced in 1990.) Gymnastics events have also been included in the 2000, 2004 and 2011 Commonwealth Youth Games.
