Gymnastics is a physically demanding sport that involves a combination of strength, flexibility, balance, coordination, and artistic expression. With that said, competitions are usually judged based on a combination of execution and difficulty. Judges assess how well athletes perform their routines, the precision of their movements, the complexity of their skills, and their overall artistic presentation.
