If you look at the average height for most college men's gymnastics teams you can see that it usually ranges from about 5'5 to 5'8. Depending on the specialty event of the gymnast can also affect the ideal height. For example, taller gymnasts (5'9-5'11) are sometimes better on Pommel Horse and High Bar while shorter guys (5'3-5'6) are better on Rings.
It doesn't ! Two 4 year olds begin the discipline of gymnastics. They are equal in performance. By age 8, one of the two has grown more and is four inches taller than the other. For the taller one, gymnastics becomes more difficulty due to the lenght of the body and the coordination required to perform certain moves. By age 12, the taller one is a-head taller and moves become more difficult and interest fades for the taller one but the shorter one continues to progress. By age 16, the taller one has dropped out leaving only her friends, the shorter one, as a gymnast. The perception then is that gymnastics stunts growth. It's the difference in DNA and genes the produces growth, not gymnastics.
No. The fact that gymnastics stunts your growth is a myth. It's all genetics and puberty.
People get worried a lot with new skills in gymnastics, im one of the taller gymnasts in my group. I wouldn't worry, remember, your coach wouldn't tell you to do something if you couldn't do it. And don't worry about the meets and being worried that you're taller than the others because you may be better, it doesnt matter how old, how tall you are, just go out there and have fun :)
no. it's actually better if your shorter. you can keep things longer and you should be more flexible than taller people. :) good luck .
No. The average man is taller than the averagewoman. At some ages, females are, on average, taller than males.
yes it is
gymnast's needs spring boards to help "spring them into the air" if you didnt have them you would just have to jump off the ground to things taller than you and flip off of them and then stick it. it's just way to much!!
No, it is not strange if your boyfriend is taller than you. That's probably even better since it will look better in photographs if he is taller than you. Also usually men are taller and older than their girlfriend/partner/wife.
It isn't as simple as that, it depends what position you play and what role you have in that position. Example, creative CM - the shorter/average players tend to be better. Centre Back - Taller tends to be better
Most say that being taller can affect your skills with gymnastics. This is only half true. Most men are taller than women, and they compete in the Olympics. Every body is different, and each (being tall and small) has its advantages. If you want to try competitive gymnastics, sometimes being tall will make it tough. Sometimes you may be moved up a division due to your height. If you are doing recreational gymnastics, it will not affect you much at all.
About three feet taller than an average human
