Maybe accept just "horse"? Didn't know half as many in English as in my own language.

Can you accept "asymmetric bars" - I've never heard it called uneven bars? S x

Further dumbing down of the populace. 'Asymmetric' is the best technical description but is harder to say and spell than 'uneven'. The definition of uneven is 'not level or smooth'. As both bars are clearly level and smooth, using uneven to describe them is wrong. Perhaps 'non-parallel' bars might be an alternate?

I kept trying uneven parallel bars, too. I never even realized they changed the name.

duh........they aren't even with each other, hence why they are called uneven bars.

Is that a regional thing? I'm American and I've never heard the term "asymmetric bars" used in gymnastics. It's always been "uneven bars."

"Asymmetric" sound as if they're deliberately meant to be that way. "Uneven" makes it sound as though they're just a bit crap :)

Even though I agree that I've always heard them called uneven bars, I also agree with you that it makes them sound like they were installed improperly or something. Like, "Darn, someone did a bad job putting up those gymnastics bars; they're totally uneven. Oh well, just do your best."

Must be a Britishism since the second Google autocomplete was "for sale UK". Asymmetric will work now.

I've NEVER heard them described as asymmetric bars. They are uneven bars. Official Olympic terminology agrees.

First sentence on Wikipedia: "The uneven bars or asymmetric bars is an artistic gymnastics apparatus."

I kept trying lipstick, glitter, mascara and rouge, but none of them worked. I thought these were requirements in the women's gymnastics.

I knew they had an event with only one bar, no idea what to call it as I don't particularly follow gymnastics. I tried single bar, one bar, and I don't remember if I could think of anything else. I'm still not going to watch gymnastics as a rule, but I would have missed only one if they had given me credit for what I know without knowing the exact name.

Why is Freehand not an answer for Rhythmic Gymnastics? Is says in the description, event OR apparatus, not just apparatus or props

Freehand is not in the olympics- neither is rope, so this quiz is probably just out of date. But the creator was correct not to include freehand. I am a rhythmic gymnast myself. :)
