    Trampolining dates to the 1930s when American George Nissen developed a prototype trampoline in his garage. Men and women will compete in individual trampolining events in Sydney. The sport requires power as athletes need to clear the surface of the trampoline by up to six metres in order to perform manoeuvres. The top performers are able to achieve up to two seconds of air time in which to tumble, twist and turn. It wasn't until the 1960s that the first World Championships was held, and the sport's governing body was formed in 1965. The United States was the early pace setter in trampolining, but in recent years European nations have overtaken the US. Russia, Great Britain and Germany are likely to be the major forces in Sydney.

    Gymnastic History
    Gymnastics, like a number of Olympic sports, has it roots in warfare. In ancient times, the Greeks, Mesopotamians and Egyptians used gymnastic-style exercises to prepare their warriors for battle. The ancient Chinese also practiced group gymnastic exercises, a tradition which continues today. Gymnastic, as an activity sport, began in ancient Greece more than 2000 years ago. Men gathered at the centers of activity "gymnasiums" to practice sport and debate about art, literature and philosophy. Plato, Aristotle and Homer advocated strengthening qualities of gymnastic activity and finding symmetry between the mind and body. The evolution of modern gymnastics began in the 19th century with the fusion of disciplines popular in Germany and Scandinavia. In 1830s, gymnastics was introduced to United States and its school systems by some of the famous immigrants. In 1881 the the first international sports federation, International Gymnastics Federation (FIG) was formed, later renamed to Bureau of the European Gymnastics Federation. This organization pioneered the international competition. The Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) was formed in United States in 1883. 1885 The American Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) holds first gymnastic championship. 1894 International Olympic Committee created, in Paris.
