The 2008 Asian Artistic Gymnastics Championships were the 4th edition of the Asian Artistic Gymnastics Championships, and were held in Doha, Qatar from November 16 to November 18, 2008.

Format of Competition

The competition format was similar to that of the 2012 Summer Olympics. All participating gymnasts, including those who were not part of a team, participated in a qualification round, which also served as the team and all-around final. Each team could only have three gymnasts perform on each apparatus, and all three scores counted toward the team total. The results of this competition determined which individuals participated in the event finals, in which the eight highest scoring individuals on each apparatus competed. Each country was limited to two gymnasts in each apparatus final.
