Watching gymnastics can be incredibly exciting. Think about the gorgeous leotards, the flawless executions and the spectacular floor exercises. And the sport is becoming more popular, too. More and more athletes are drawn to a discipline that manages to combine balance, speed, flexibility, strength, control and finesse.

And yet, until recently, we rarely got to see broadcasts of gymnastics competitions. With a few exceptions, fans often had to wait until a big event like the Olympics to see gymnastics live on TV. While the sport may not be as prominent as rugby, soccer or cricket, loyal followers are still keen to tune in for big events like the Australian Gymnastics Championships or the Gymnastics World Cup. Luckily, all this changed in 2018, thanks to a new TV broadcasting deal. Check out all the streaming options available to gymnastics fans below.
