In the Olympics, gymnastics consist of two disciplines - artistic and rhythmic. Artistic gymnastics was introduced at the very first Olympic Games in 1896 at Athens, and has been present at every edition of the Games since then. At the beginning, it comprised disciplines that are difficult to qualify as "artistic", such as climbing and acrobatics. The foundations of the Olympic gymnastics programme were laid at the 1924 Games in Paris, when the men's apparatus individual and team competitions appeared. In 1928, women were included in the Amsterdam Games. It was not until 1952 that women's programme was developed, with seven events, and then with six events from the 1960 Games in Rome where it has remained.
Rhythmic gymnastics was integrated into the Games in 1984 at Los Angeles and has always been a part of the Olympic programme since then. Until the 1992 Games in Barcelona, only one individual event was on the programme. Team event was added to the programme in 1996 at Atlanta.
