Commonly mistaken for artistic gymnatics. Rhythmic gymnastics incorporates the use of hand-held apparatus with music. These apparatus include Rope, Hoop, Ball, Clubs and Ribbon. Rhythmic gymnasts are extremly flexible and most incoporate ballet lessons into their training. This sport is not for the faint hearted.
*PLEASE NOTE - Rhythmic Gymnasts CANNOT do flips and will hurt you if you ask!

Rhythmic gymnastics is one of the hardest sports with the most intense training regimen. Ballet, flexibility, strength and coordination these gymnasts need it all! The gymnasts compete in stunning leotards (usually 4) which altogether can cost over £3,000!!

Rhythmic gymnasts are easily the most talented athletes and can make catching a hoop and bending in all directions look elegant and flow beautifully in a routine!

Definitely the most underrated gymnasts in a sport which is no where near easy!!
In rhythmic gymnastics the gymnasts don't do backflips so don't even go there!!

An activity (not a sport) dominated mostly by unattractive, pencil-thin eastern European girls with big foreheads. Consists mostly of juggling balls and clubs, rolling around on the floor, prancing around with a ribbon stick and tossing a rope back and forth to other unattractive, pencil-thin eastern European girls.

It's the perfect activity (not a sport) for high school color guard dorks and/or circus performers who would like to get into the Olympics.
Jacques Rogge is an effing douchebag who'd rather look at ugly girls playing with ribbons (rhythmic gymnastics)than ugly girls playing with balls. At least the ones who play with balls (softball players) have boobs.
