The 2018 Commonwealth Games is an international multi-sport event that will be held in Gold Coast City, Queensland, Australia between 4 to 15 April 2018. The winning bid was announced in Basseterre, Saint Kitts on 11 November 2011.
Format of Competition
The format was similar to that of the Olympics. No compulsory routines were performed. Instead, all participating gymnasts, including those who were not part of a team, 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 six highest scoring teams from qualifications competed. Each team of six gymnasts could have up to five gymnasts perform on each apparatus, and only the four highest scores counted toward the team total.
- The all-around competition, in which the thirty-six highest scoring individuals in the all-around competed. Each country was limited to three 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.
