Artistic Gymnastics at the 1908 Summer Olympics

Very little is known about the gymnastics events of the 1908 Olympic Games. There was an individual and a team event, both held in the infield of the White City Stadium. The contests were conducted under the rules of Amateur Gymnastic Association of Great Britain.

It should be noted that in the team competition, it does not appear that the current system of distributing Olympic medals was followed. Per the Official Report, the first place team received a gold medal, and the team members each received silver medals. The second place team received a silver medal and the team members each received bronze medals. No prize is mentioned for the third place team.
