The sport is millenia old, but the first international competition was a men's event at the 1896 Athens Olympics. Women did not compete in the Olympics until the second Olympiad, Paris 1900, and only 22 women competed, and none of them in gymnastics. Women's gymnastics did not really exist until the 1920's, and that was primarily calisthenicss demonstrations.
