Gymnastics at the 2020 Summer Olympics – Qualification

This article describes the qualifying phase for gymnastics at the 2020 Summer Olympics (postponed to 2021[2] due to the COVID-19 pandemic).

The qualification system underwent a significant revision following the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio. The team events in artistic gymnastics will be reduced from five members to four, but a maximus of two further places will be available for competitors in individual events, in principle allowing one or two athletes per National Olympic Committee (NOC) to enter as specialists.

In a further move to link FIG competitions to the Olympics, it will now be possible to qualify for the Olympics on the basis of an aggregate of scores achieved over the Artistic Gymnastics World Cup series, and the various continental artistic gymnastics championships.[3]
