Acrobatic gymnastics is not yet an Olympic sport. But it’s one of the big attractions at the World Games! The World Games occur the year after the summer Olympics, and the competitions are in sports that are not Olympic sports. There are team and pair competitions for both men and women. This video from the 2009 World Games shows an incredible men’s team performance.
Boxscore News contains a good explanation of the type of acro-gymnastics competitions that take place:
Acrobatic gymnastics, the fourth gymnastics discipline in the World Games, first appeared at the 1993 World Games in The Hague, Netherlands. The field’s 78 acrobats represent six pairs or groups each in women’s, mixed and men’s pairs and women’s and men’s groups. The women’s group has three gymnasts, and the men’s group has four gymnasts. The top four pairs/groups in the qualification round (which features one dynamic and one balance exercise) advance to the finals (one combined exercise). Performances at the 2012 World Championships in Lake Buena Vista, Fla., served as the qualification for the World Games.
