 Behind every jump, spin and flip of Olympic gymnastics, science is at work. Centrifugal force is at work in a midair spin and a strong centre of gravity is involved in balance beam routines. Newton's Third Law of Motion springs into action as a gymnast flies into the air in the vaulting event. Find out how science is involved in all your favourite gymnastics events and how gymnasts take science into account as they chase the gold medal.
