“What a perfect dismount!” says the announcer. “That was probably one of the best performances we've seen. She should definitely get points for costume-that red, white and blue leotard looks amazing!”
In Modern day gymnastics, women wear leotards. If they have long hair, they may also wear a headband to keep their hair out of the way. Men have two different types of uniforms. They will not only wear a shirt, but they will wear shorts on activities such as floor exercises and vault. They will wear pants on the pommel horse, parallel bars, horizontal bars, and still rings.
Both men and women can compete wearing special leather slippers or socks, but they can compete barefoot. It is important that everything fits securely because if something is loose it can get caught on the equipment. Gymnasts can also wear grips so they won't get blisters. Some gymnasts also prefer to wear wristbands.So as you can see, gymnastics is a great sport, and it has great uniforms too!
