Is it better to be tall or short for gymnastics?
In general, shorter gymnasts are more muscular than taller gymnasts are. Being short and muscular provides a gymnast with a strength advantage. Shorter, muscular gymnasts can accomplish higher-level vaults because they travel down the runway with more power.
Why are gymnasts so short?
By moving their arms in, they’ve decreased the amount of weight that’s far away from the axis of rotation and they’ve decreased their moment of inertia, making it easier for them to spin at high speed. The smaller a gymnast is, the easier it is for her to rotate in the air.

It’s the transition of moving through all these exercises without faltering that recruits so much muscle tissue.

Why are male gymnasts so short?
Conclusion: Short stature in these competitive male gymnasts was due to a reduced leg length but not sitting height. The lack of a difference in growth rates, IGF-I, and diet over the 18-month period indicates that the short stature reported in male gymnasts is due to selection bias rather than gymnastics training.
Do gymnasts take drugs to stunt growth?
