2000 Summer Olympics
At the 2000 Summer Olympics, three different gymnastics disciplines were contested: artistic gymnastics, rhythmic gymnastics, and trampoline. The artistic gymnastics and trampoline events were held at the Sydney SuperDome on 16–25 September and 22–23 September, respectively. The rhythmic gymnastics events were held at Pavilion 3 of the Sydney Olympic Park on 28 September – 1 October.
Format of competition
No compulsory routines were performed in artistic gymnastics at the 2000 Summer Olympics. Instead, all participating gymnasts, including those who were not part of a team, participated in a qualification round. The results of this competition determined which teams and individuals participated in the remaining competitions, which included:
- The team competition, in which the six highest scoring teams from qualifications competed. Each team of six gymnasts could have up to five gymnasts perform on each apparatus, and only the four highest scores counted toward the team total.
- The all-around competition, in which the thirty-six highest scoring individuals in the all-around competed. Each country was limited to three gymnasts in the all-around final.
- The event finals, in which the eight highest scoring individuals on each apparatus competed. Each country was limited to two gymnasts in each apparatus final.

The Federation Internationale de Gymnastique Executive Board announced on 27 February 2010 after an investigation into the Chinese team for violations of age rules for senior gymnastics competitions that team member Dong Fangxiao, who had been entered as 17 years old, was actually 14 at the time of the Olympics (two years below the minimum age). Her 1999 World Championships and 2000 Olympic results were struck from the records, and in April 2010, nearly ten years after the event, the IOC officially disqualified China, who had originally won the bronze medal in the women's team event.
