Gymnastics at the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo was held in three categories: artistic gymnastics, rhythmic gymnastics and trampolining. After months of waiting due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Summer Olympics were finally held in Tokyo 2021 at the Olympic Gymnastic Centre. Spectators were unable to attend, making this the smallest Olympic crowd. "After waves of the COVID-19 pandemic, multiple pleas for cancellation, a recent surge of coronavirus cases in Japan, and an official name that went out of date, the delayed 2020 Tokyo Olympics are finally on. "
The program for 2020 remained unchanged from 2016, despite an application from the FIG for the admission of a new parkour based event. The application had proved contentious with specialist parkour or freerunning organizations lobbying for the sport not to be included, and to be recognized as an entirely separate sport from gymnastics.
Originally planned as a temporary venue, in 2016, the Tokyo 2020 authorities confirmed the Olympic Gymnastic Centre would become a permanent venue, functioning as a convention center after the Games. Before its refurbishment, the venue was also expected to host the Boccia event at the 2020 Summer Paralympics.
There was one unbroken tie in artistic gymnastics: bronze in the women's floor final.
