The 2013 Summer Universiade, officially known as the XXVII Summer Universiade, was held from July 6 to 17 in the city of Kazan, Russia, the capital of the Republic of Tatarstan. It is the second largest sport participation event in the world. Over 13,500 University athletes from over 170 countries participated in 13 mandatory and 14 optional sports, making the Universiade the biggest ever in the history of the event. The Universiade is organized by the International University Sports Federation (FISU), based in Lausanne, Switzerland. Gymnastics was contested from July 7 to 10 at the Gymnastics Centre in Kazan, Russia.

Format of Competition

The competition format was similar to that of the Olympics. All participating gymnasts, including those who were not part of a team, participated in a qualification round, which also served as the team 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 remaining competitions, which included:

  • 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.
