Gymnastics’ Dumbest Rules

Today, we’re calling out the worst, stupidest, most self-defeating and awkward rules and conventions in gymnastics, starting with…

  • Leotard Rules – aka the Olympics of regulating women’s bodies
    • Venture with us to a world where “elegant,” “proper,” and “modest” are all words found in the official rule book of a competitive sport in the year 2023—and breasts are expressly prohibited
  • Why Is Gymnastics Still the Military?
    • Saluting and lining up in front of the generals for inspection? Where are we?
  • The Apparatus World Cup of Stupidity
    • From the assumption that all women are the same height, to what the FIG considers to be “undisciplined and abusive behavior,” to that thing where a double front doesn’t fulfill the front tumbling requirement, we take on the worst rules on each event
  • Rules Mythbusters
    • Things someone (usually Martha) pretended were rules, and everyone believed it, but they actually aren’t
  • Plus, they may not be rules, but some old-fashioned and infantile gymnastics conventions are on our list!
