All-male events include team, individual all-around, floor exercises and pommel horse, as well as the rings, vault, parallel bars and the horizontal bar. Meanwhile, female gymnasts will take part in team, individual all-around, vault and uneven bars, as well as the balance beam and floor exercise categories.
