It used to be that you could compete in the same year you turned 15 - which is why Nadia Comaneci was only 14 when she won the All Round final in Montreal in 1976. She turned 15 later that year.

Now the rules are that athletes must turn 16 no later than their competition in the Olympics

(i.e. born before that date in the year 2000).
