Sport History

The history of gymnastics can be traced all the way back to ancient Greece where gymnastics exercises were used to prepare for war, and eventually became a central component of ancient Greek education. The sport of gymnastics has continued to grow in Canada, and is now one of the largest participatory activities in the country.

Artistic gymnastics were contested at the very first Canada Winter Games in Quebec City in 1967. For full technical package, visit the Canada Games site.
