Landing from a dismount in Artistic Gymnastics aims to reduce the velocity of the mass centre to zero without taking a step, hop or jump after initial foot contact. The gymnast must trade off increased technical difficulty with decreased probability of a successful landing and increased risk of injury. Optimising landing technique using a computer simulation model of a gymnast and landing mat could be a useful tool when attempting to safely assess injury risk.
