Qualification Draw

On Feb. 23, the International Gymnastics Federation conducted the draw for the 2012 Olympic Games, determining the order of competition for this summer's competition.

The random draw was attended by FIG President Bruno Grandi and the FIG Technical Presidents for all the federation's Olympic disciplines — artistic gymnastics, rhythmic gymnastics and trampoline.

The Chinese men, the reigning world and Olympic champions, drew the first of three subdivisions of qualification on July 28. Host Great Britain will join the Chinese in the early round, beginning on pommel horse.

Japan and the U.S. — silver and bronze medalists respectively at both the 2008 Olympics and 2011 Worlds — both compete in the second subdivision. Medal contenders Germany and Russia headline the third and final session.

In the women's competition, the world champion U.S. squad will compete in the third of five subdivisions, alongside Great Britain. Defending Olympic champion China and 2010 world champion Russia drew the fourth subdivision. Three-time Olympic champion Romania compete in the fifth subdivision.
