The 2009 Australian Youth Olympic Festival took place from January 15-19 at the Sydney Olympic Park in Sydney, Australia. This competition was restricted to younger gymnasts born between January 1, 1994 and December 31, 1996.

Format of Competition

The competition format was similar to senior elite-level competitions such as the European and World Championships and Olympic Games. All participating gymnasts participated in a qualification round. The results of this competition determined which teams and individuals participated in the remaining competitions, which included:

  • The team competition, in which the eight highest scoring teams from qualifications competed. For the first time, each team of six gymnasts could only have three gymnasts perform on each apparatus, and all three scores counted toward the team total.
  • The all-around competition, in which only the twenty-four highest scoring individuals in the all-around competed. Each country was limited to only two gymnasts in the all-around final.
  • 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.
