The 1928 Summer Olympics, officially known as the Games of the IX Olympiad, was an international multi-sport event which was celebrated in 1928 in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Amsterdam had bid for the 1920 and 1924 Olympic Games, but had to give way to war-victim Antwerp, Belgium, and Pierre de Coubertin's Paris, respectively. The only other candidate city for the 1928 Games was Los Angeles, which would host the Olympics four years later.
For the first time at the Olympic Games, women competed in gymnastics.
Format of Competition
At these Olympics, only the team final was contested for the women. The team score was based on vault, portable apparatus (such as ball, hoop, ribbon - like in rhythmic gymnastics), and team drill. The countries were limited to twelve gymnasts per team.
