The first Youth Olympic Games were held in Singapore and gave us a stage to see gymnasts like Viktoria Komova, Diana Bulimar, and Carlotta Ferlito while they were still juniors. For women, athletes must be born in 1999 to be eligible. Therefore, all the ladies that we will see compete will be eligible for World Championships in Glasgow 2015 and the Rio Olympics in 2016. The gymnastics competition will take place Aug 17-27, specifically with women's artistic on the 18th (Q), 20th (AA F), 23rd (VT/UB), and 24th (BB/FX).

I thought it would be nice to put it in order that the countries finished at Olympics/Test Event but it's too confusing. Here's a quick idea:
1-8: USA, RUS, ROU, CHN, CAN, GBR, ITA, JPN
9-16: GER, AUS, FRA, BRA, BEL, KOR, ESP, NED, MEX

USA will not be sending anyone due to conflict with US National Championships.

Listed below are countries that have already named athletes and countries that competed in Singapore.
