Gymnastics is a sport. In any sport you have to go to meets or you have to practice. I f you don't do that it is technically not a sport. Its also not considered a real sport unless their are games or competitions. Gymnastics does all of that. For Gymnastics like any other sports you have some day during the week where you go down and practice with the team. Then Gymnastics always tell you to practice. You don't practice you don't get better. Also in Gymnastics you have competions, almost every month.

sport = competition

is = always

so gymnastics can be a sport cause ppl compete in temes. but there are some people who do it for fun! so it isn't sport. google says sport is "an activity involving physical exertion and skill in which an individual or team competes against another or others for entertainment." you can see it has competition or entertainment, but the enterteinment has to have competition. so dey do it for awards or fur fun but it needs competition. some people do it ONLY for fun so it isn't a tru sport. since i provide first definition it is the one we use. i have proven it isnt always sport so i win.

thank u

It makes very little difference to me, I don't care much what people want to call sport or not. My line, however, is subjectivity. All subjective sports are... suspect.

Its very difficult to respect decisions (wins) of sports that have judges.
