  1. Tumbling

    In gymnastics, tumbling, also known as power tumbling is an acrobatic sporting discipline which combines some of the skills of artistic gymnastics on the floor with those of trampolining. It is practised on a 25 metre long spring track. It was developed from tumbling performances performed by entertainers from very early times but as a sport is now codified, regulated, judged and performed using standardised special equipment. This sport is practised by both men and women. Competitors perform two passes, each containing 8 skills along the track, usually starting with a Round-off, Barani, or Rudi followed by a series of back-handsprings and/or whips ending in a 'dismount' skill. Only the feet and hands are allowed to make contact with the track. Governed by rules established by the Fédération Internationale de Gymnastique, tumbling is one of the gymnastic disciplines. Many elements of tumbling are also practised on Floor Exercise by participants of both Women's Artistic Gymnastics and Men's Artistic Gymnastics. Tumbling elements such as the round-off and back-handspring are commonly integrated into the balance beam routines of gymnasts.
