Gymnastics became an Olympic sport in 1896. When the Olympic movement was resurrected at the first Olympics Games in Athens in 1896, gymnastics made a fitting return. Germany, which was key in developing apparatus gymnastics, won most of the medals as men from five countries competed in the horizontal bar, parallel bars, pommel horse, rings and vault.
