Floor Exercise - Artistic Gymnastics
The floor exercise is an event for both, male and female gymnasts. One of the differences between male and female floor routines is that female gymnastics are allowed to perform with music and male gymnastics have to perform without music. The floor is a square of 12 x 12 meters which consists of several layers of foam, plywood and / or sometimes springs. This allows the gymnast to jump higher and reduces the impact when he lands.
