I think that gymnastics may have been originally invented from the ancient Greece athletes. It is believed that gymnastics developed in ancient Greece as a form of competition derived from activities like getting on and off horses and those performed by circus performers. In the late 18th century, physical educators developed exercises to be done on the first models of parallel and horizontal bars, and the pommel horse. These exercises eventually developed into forms of gymnastics.
