Best Answer

They are usually thin because competative gymnasts train very hard. Most high level gymnast train from 16-24 hours a week. This of coarse keeps them in good shape. There are also plenty of full figured gymnasts in the world as well, but their intense training is the main reason you see so many thin gymnasts.
