Description

After the Fédération Internationale de Trampoline (FIT) managed to get its sport on the Olympic Program for the 2000 Sydney Olympics, the governing body became part of the Fédération Internationale de Gymnastique (FIG), which also governs acrobatic, artistic, and rhythmic gymnastics.

The FIG was founded on 23 July 1881 in Liège, with three founding members: Belgium, France, and the Netherlands, and it was originally called the Bureau des fédérations européennes de gymnastique. It was re-named the FIG in 1921. As of 2020 the organization has 148 member federations. The FIG recognized rhythmic gymnastics as a discipline in 1961, with the first World Championships being held in 1963.

At the Olympics, only an individual event (one for men, and one for women) is contested. Karen Cockburn of Canada has won a medal at each of the first three Olympics in which the sport was contested, earning two silvers and one bronze medal; and her countrywoman, Rosie MacLennan won gold medals in both 2012 and 2016. China’s Dong Dong won a full set of medals in 2008-16. Through 2016, China has won the most medals in the discipline, with 11 medals and 3 golds, while Canada has 7 medals and 2 gold medals.
