International Forum on Gymnastic Sciences.
Hosted by Osaka University of Health and Sport Sciences
In gymnastics, at the forefront of score-judged sports, laboratory-based scientific research has been unable to keep up with the innate sense and the rapid pace of technical innovation exhibited by practitioners in the field, and the gap between the two sides has long been regarded as a significant issue. Technological advances, however, such as a cooperative effort by the International Gymnastics Federation to develop a scoring support system based on three-dimensional motion analysis, are now attempting to make the previously impossible possible. Here, we adopt the theme of “the Science of Gymnastics” in Japan, a gymnastics powerhouse heading into the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games, and pursue a deeper discussion among people with a variety of different perspectives.
