When to watch gymnastics during the 2024 Paris Olympics

One of the most popular sports at the 2024 Paris Olympics will be artistic gymnastics. This sport is made up of numerous individual competitions on different apparatus, as well as a team competition involving all apparatus. Men compete across the floor exercise, pommel horse, still rings, vault, parallel bars and high bar. Women’s events include the vault, uneven bars, balance beam and floor exercise.

Gymnastics has a long history on the Olympic program as the sport was introduced to its first Games in 1896, and has been included in every iteration since. Women began competing at the Olympic level at the 1928 Amsterdam Games. Japan dominated the sport in the 1960s and 70s, but center stage is primarily occupied these days by the U.S., Russia, and China in addition to Japan. 

The U.S. women won silver in the team event at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. Before Tokyo, the U.S. had taken home every team gold medal since the 2008 Games. American Suni Lee won the women’s all-around competition in Tokyo.

Gymnastics will take place at the 2024 Paris Olympics between July 27th - August 5th.


Twelve teams will compete in both the men’s and women’s gymnastics events and there will be 14 events across the men’s and women’s disciplines.

The gymnastics competition will take place at Bercy Arena, which is a large sports hall that was once the No. 1 concert venue in France that welcomed many international artists.

The arena was built in 1984 and was designed by architects Michel Andrault and Pierre Parat. Located in the 12th arrondissement of Paris, it is known for its distinct pyramid shape and sloped sides covered with grass. In 2014 and 2015, the arena underwent extensive renovation to modernize its technological infrastructure. Those developments made Bercy Arena capable of hosting a number of athletic events from equestrian, judo, handball, tennis, ice hockey, skiing and motocross events.

During the 2024 Paris Olympics, the arena will host two major sports - gymnastics and basketball - and three disciplines one after another within a short span of time.
