Guide to the Games


The 2016 Summer Olympic Games take place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, from the 5th to the 21st of August. More than 10,500 athletes from 206 National Olympic Committees will take part in 28 sports across 33 venues.

Competitions will take place in men’s and women’s artistic gymnastics, trampoline and rhythmic gymnastics. We have qualified full men’s and women’s artistic gymnastics teams (5 per team), two places for Team GB in the women’s trampoline event and one in the men's event.

For Team GB the gymnastics events begin on the 6th of August with our men’s team in qualifying action and end on the 13th August with the trampoline competitions. There are medals on offer for both individuals and teams in artistic gymnastics and individuals in the trampoline events.

At the last Olympic Games in London, Team GB picked up four Olympic medals with our men’s artistic team taking bronze, Louis Smith winning silver and Max Whitlock bronze on the pommel horse and Beth Tweddle taking the bronze on the uneven bars.
