Gymnastics Party Supplies – The Background
Gymnastics Party Supplies are based on the gymnastics sport. It is a sport where exercises are performed in front of the audience. Gymnastics requires physical strength, agility, coordination, flexibility and balance. Grace and passion for the sport are also necessary to compete. Men and women both participate in this sport. Women’s gymnastics involves uneven parallel bars, floor exercise, balance beam and vault events. Men’s gymnastics involves floor exercises, still rings, parallel bars, high bar, pommel horse and vault. Then there are children’s gymnastics and kindergym where the participants can be as young as five years old. Recreational gymnastics includes participants of ages 5 and up.
Each country has its own gymnastic governing body. But all of them are affiliated to FIG (Fédération Internationale de Gymnastique). FIG is an international body that governs all the gymnastic sports.
Competitive Artistic gymnastics is the best gymnastic sports and is surely worth watching. Other gymnastic sports include various trampolining sports, rhythmic gymnastics, aerobic gymnastics and acrobatic gymnastics.
Gymnastics has evolved from the exercises done by the ancient Greeks. Gymnastics in Greece involved individuals performing athletic feats. Gymnastics was encouraged among the young Greeks as it combined recreation along with exercise and a feat to watch for the viewers. At that time gymnastics was given more importance than art and music. All Greek cities had a large gymnasium for jumping, running, and wrestling. But when Olympic Games were abolished by the Emperor Theodosius in 393 AD, many sports, along with gymnastics started declining and gymnastics was forgotten for centuries.
The first book explaining principles of gymnastics was written by Girolamo Mercuriale from Forlì (Italy) in the fifteenth century. The name of the book is De Arte Gymnastica. It is also considered to be the first book on sports medicine. The book explains the principles of physical therapy, exercise and natural methods to cure the diseases.
Johann Friedrich GutsMuths and Friedrich Ludwig Jahn were two German physical educators. They werefrom the late eighteenth century and early nineteenth century. They created horizontal and parallel bars and the vaulting horse and crafted exercises. This is considered as the beginning of the modern gymnastics. Later, in 1881, FIG, the Federation of International Gymnastics was founded in Liege.
Gymnastics had started gaining popularity. By the end of the nineteenth century it had become so popular that it was included in the first modern Olympic Games in 1896. And since then gymnastics has been enjoying huge popularity. 1928 Olympic Games in Amsterdam introduced women’s gymnastics competition. 1954 Olympics introduced uniform grading system. At this time Soviet gymnasts astonished the sports world with highly disciplined difficult performances. They raised the standard so much that is still continued. The first perfect score was performed by Nadia Comăneci from Romanis. It was at the 1976 Summer Olympics that were held in Montreal, Canada. But still the gold medal was won by the Soviet Union.

If you need favor boxes as well, I would suggest you to choose the combination of Deluxe Party Pack & 8 Favor Boxes from our Gymnastics Kids Birthday Party Supplies. It would cost you much more if you purchase them separately. If you think that the number of guests may exceed 8 you should consider Gymnastics Party Pack Add-On.
