The parallel event for Rhythmic Gymnastics took place in Tashkent (UZB) on February 16 – 19, 2010 (see review).
YOG athlete eligibility
A quota of 7, including one spot for host country Singapore, is allotted to Asian MAG juniors at the Youth Olympic Games. Girls compete for 5 plus 1 (host) spots.
The required age for Artistic gymnasts to be eligible to participate in the Singapore Youth Olympic Games is 16-17 years for boys (born in 1993 or 1994), and 15 years for girls (born in 1995). Gymnasts must qualify at their Junior Continental Championships and may not have previously participated at FIG senior competitions or multi-sport games. A maximum of one male and one female athlete is allowed per NOC.
All gymnasts must have reached the following minimum standards: Boys as well as girls must participate on all apparatus and reach an average minimum execution score of 7.5, thus a total execution score of at least 45 points for MAG and 30 points for WAG.
In Trampoline two spots for girls and boys each will be allocated to Asian gymnasts, whereby one spot is reserved for the host country in each case.
The required age for Trampoline gymnasts eligible for the Singapore Youth Olympic Games is 16-17 years (born in 1993 or 1994) for both boys and girls and all gymnasts must have reached the following minimum standards: Boys must reach a preliminary score of 55.00 points or a second or final score of 30.00 points.
