Beam Beam or balance beam is a long thin object about 5 inches wide covered in leather, it shows the both balance and strength in the gymnast. Only woman participate. Vault Vault is just like it sounds vaulting over something. It is similar texture to the beam about a metre and a half wide, a spring board placed at the front that the gymnast uses to jump over the vault, either forwards or backwards. Men and woman both participate in this apparatus.
Uneven bars Uneven bars are two bars, one is higher than the other but both are the same width and length. The aim is to get from one bar to the other without touching or falling on the ground while still performing tricks. Men have just one high bar.
