Is 12 too old to start gymnastics?
You can begin gymnastics at almost any age you develop an interest, but you may want to stick with recreational gymnastics if you start older than 12. Starting later than 12 years old may not give you enough time to develop the skills you need to go up against people who have been at it since they were toddlers.
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.

Underwear. Most gymnasts don’t wear underwear when wearing a leotard because these outfits act much like a bathing suit does. You can also wear bras under your leotard or singlet as long as it isn’t visible, including the straps. You can wear any underwear of your choosing in training.
Do you wear a bra with a leotard for gymnastics?
