2012 Olympic Qualifiers Finalized for Gymnastics
(8 votes, average 4.50 out of 5)

The International Gymnastics Federation officially confirmed the final lists of 2012 Olympic qualifiers for all its Olympic disciplines, following the rhythmic qualification event held Tuesday in London.

The pre-Olympic test event was the second chance for qualification to this summer's Olympics, after the world championships held last year in each sport.

Gymnastics is allotted a total 196 spots for artistic gymnastics (98 men and 98 women), 96 spots for rhythmic gymnastics (24 individuals and 12 groups) and 32 spots for trampoline (16 men and 16 women) at the 2012 Olympic Games. (Click here to download the FIG's detailed qualification process.)

As the host nation, Great Britain is guaranteed berths in each of the disciplines. Great Britain already qualified in artistic gymnastics and trampoline, but the FIG Executive Committee will award additional berths in rhythmic gymnastics (both group and individual).

Gymnasts who did not qualify must hope for one of the few wild card spots to be determined by the FIG Executive Committee and the Tripartite Commission.

How about a WIld Card for Ashleigh Heldsinger from SOuth Africa would sustained an injury during podium training! Had good marks at Worlds, and could have definitely maintained it at the Test Event!

So sad that neither of our South African gymnasts can go...Jennifer Khwela tore her ACL but is recovering well. However she missed both test events and even though she will be fit for the Olympics, she cannot be chosen. Ashleigh Heldsinger was injured during podium training at the London test event so likewise cannot be considered because she did not compete so she is not on the list.smilies/angry.gif

No US rhythmic competitors?
So the U.S. didn't qualify any girls to compete in rhythmic? Or will more competitors be determined later?

So incredibly INJUSTICE that the Hungarian girl didn't get enough points to go to the Olympic Games. If anybody she would have deserved it absolutely! Go Dora Vass, you have many fans around the world!!!

One of the FIG's qualification rules is for continental representation. Africa didn't qualify any gymnasts so someone from Africa needs to go. Ashleigh Heldsinger could get one of the wild cards on account of her 2011 World's placing as the top AA placing from Africa.

I soooooooo hope FIG gives one of the wild cards to Jennifer Khwela. She has won multiple medals on the World Cup circuit and in my opinion deserves a place in the Olympics so incredibly much. The timing of her injury was so unfortunate smilies/cry.gif
