The research carried out seeks to analyse the biotype of rhythmic gymnastics and relate competition performance with anthropometric and physical fitness values. This comparative research has been carried out using the classifying tree technique, with the membership of a club, the suprailiac fold, the thigh fold and the vertical jump giving rise to good results. The specific “gazelle” jump has lower values compared to the vertical jump.

Keywords: Anthropometric, Rhythmic Gymnastics, Somatotype.
