Gymnastics, in Portland, is a sport of performing exercises that display physical strength, flexibility, agility, coordination, balance, and grace. Gymnastics is considered to have evolved from the ancient Greek exercises involving skills for mounting and dismounting a horse, and from circus stunts.

There are several forms of gymnastics, namely – Artificial gymnastics, Rhythmic gymnastics, Trampolining & tumbling, Acrobatic gymnastics, Teamgym, Display gymnastics & Aerobic gymnastics. Competitive Artistic gymnastics is the most popular gymnastic sports. The events for women include: uneven parallel bars, balance beam, floor exercise, and vault, while those for men are - floor exercise, pommel horse, still rings, vault, parallel bars, and high bars.

Rhythmic gymnastics is performed by women only, although Japan is pioneering a new version of this discipline of gymnastics for men. Performance of five separate routines with the use of five apparatus—ball, ribbon, hoop, clubs, rope—on a floor area is the basis for this form.

Trampolining and Tumbling include four events- individual, synchronized, double mini and power tumbling.
