    Weight divisions in gymnastics

    I just wondered, why are there no weight divisions in competitive gymnastics? Considering the still rings, it is an event that heavily favours smaller athletes, leaving taller competitors behind. This is the only strength-sport that favours smaller people over bigger people. They judge based on the technique performed, rather than amount of stresses handled on the body. All other strength sports have weight divisions. Why have they never made, say, a scaling factor that would award taller competitors more points for performing the same technique (which is harder via biomechanics) than shorter competitors, or at least made weight divisions (lightweight, heavyweight, etc).
