WORLD GAMES REPORT by Jim and Pauline Prestidge Photos by Don Wilki nson

Three Olympics, three world and three European championships ought to have hardened us in the serious business of following gymnastics, but as we traveled the 50 miles by coach from Zagreb Airport to Ljubljana, we members of the British contingent were bubbling with excitement like a bunch of school kids. We had already had our bonus of gymnastic pleasure, for during the few days before our departure for the world championships, the great U.S.A. team arrived in London as our guests and opponents. As guests they were efficiently ruthless and demonstrated clearly their superiority over our gymnasts. Even so we enjoyed those few days with the Americans and learned much from their hard-working training sessions and admired their inspired workouts especially those at our own gym at Ladywell. So by the time we reached Ljubljana and the Hotel Union we had already been blooded and were set for the ordeal which was to follow. Ljubljana, a lovely old town, is the capital of Yugoslavia . It is located within an hour's motoring of the Italian , Swiss and Austrian alps and is therefore surrounded by some of the finest scenery in Europe. We especially remember one of our training venues which was about 12 miles out of town and was situated under the snowcapped mountains. For most of our time in Ljubljana the sun shone brilliantly, and the countryside looked beautiful , and in this atmosphere our teams worked hard. After one such training session we were waiting to fall , tired and hungry into the bus which would take us back to the hotel for our meal when the next team arrived at the training hall - it was the Russians! Tiredness and hunger forgotten, we sat for the next three hours and just watched! During this our first glimpse of the Russian girls in Yugoslavia, we were most impressed. Each girl was so confident and knew exactly what was expected of her. Hardly a word had to be spoken by their coach , a sure indication that their training had reached its peak. During this training session we had ample opportunity to study and analyze closely the Russian technique and general behavior. Their greatest attribute in my opinion is their ability to play the part of the perfect artist all the time. Their carriage, posture and proud feminine elegance is a joy to see whatever they are doing. Three days later during the compulsory exercises, Tamara Lazakovitch committed the crime of crimes and fell from the beam! She walked back to her seat knowing that 8,000 people were watching her failure, yet in spite of her obvious misery she maintained her self-control and her proud bearing throughout the ordeal. Needless to say every one of the Russian girls who followed Tamara showed their nervous strain by wobbling and generally performing some very unRussian beam exercises, proving that in spite of alii have just said they are capable of succumbing to that bogey of all gymnasts, psychological fear. This series of Russian failures on the compulsory beam were certainly the big shock of the first day, indeed of the entire championships . It was generally accepted that the reigning world champions, Czechoslovakia were no longer a threat to the Soviet Union,

neither were the Japanese. The U .S.A. team with its new babes were not quite within reach of the coveted team medals. The East Germans had, however, been steadily improving sin ce their entry into world gymnastics 12 years ago. It was just conceivable that if the East Germans made no mistakes and the Russians faltered , then the German girls could take the team award . 路6路


fu l judging. It is significant that th e U.S.A. team's lowest score came from the bea m compulsories and their highest from the beam vo luntaries. just why the judges hammered them so hard on this piece is a mystery. Cathy Rigby with 9.1 for the set was one of the hardest hit, and had this score been hi gher as deserved, that silver medal might have been a gol d! Yes, Rigby mad e a "si lver" and made history for the U.S.A. , fo r this was their first medal ever in women's gymnastics. The excitement as Cathy neared the end of her final exercise was very intense as she completed each length of the beam without a fault and then finally the finish - everyone rela xed and then let out a terrific applause. I know that I fe lt this thrill and happ iness for her achievement just as if she were a member of my own team, and, I think for me, this was one of the great moments of the games! There were fewer such emotional moments in this 17th world championships. The absence of Vera Caslavska and Natasha Kutchinskia leaves a huge gap. There were no gymnasts who could match them for sheer artistry and personality. Even the great Ludmilla Turisheva, the world champion, did not infuse deep feeling to the beholder despite her great technical ability and ski ll , and the Russian team as a whole seemed far too tense to convey their usual relaxed and happy performances. Although these championships will be remembered as the most highly organized of any and certainly the most enjoyable, there was I feel a dearth of great emotional moments to stamp them as the finest ever. The last decade gave us some of the greatest personal ities ever to adorn our sport - Astakova,. Latynina, Kutchin sk ia and, of course, Caslavska. They were all artists of the hi ghest calibre, and each had their own personal charm . Their places will not easily be filled . The Ljublj ana championships were certainly not without their perfectionists, Zuchold and janz of the D.D.R., Turistcheva and Vorinova of the U.S. S.R. , Vachov a of Czechoslovakia, Matsuhisa of japan and not forgetting Rigby of the U .S.A., but I think that not one of them has yet reached the pinnacle of gymnastic artistry which so often held us spellbound at Prague and Dortmund. The first four places are still occupied by the same four countries. The only change being the sliding back of Czechoslovakia and japan and the rise to prominence of the East Germans. The U .S.A. thanks to Cathy Rigby and a wonderful supporting team of babes, did well to take seventh place only 2.5 points behind the powerful Hungarians. What will the future be? The sport becomes more and more skillful, training becomes ever harder, and performers are reaching gymnastic maturity much earli er. The complexity of administration, preparation and coaching is growing every year. Are we perhaps losing some of the art form in the race to be victors? I hope not. I think it was Aristotle who sa id 2,000 years ago, "Gymnastics is not just an art but is also a science, an anthropological science with a social purpose." The significant inference here being that it is first and foremost an art, need I say that we all hope that it remains that

A.), " ... everyone relaxed and let out a terrific applause. "

The Russian beam debacle provided just the sort of lapse that the German girls needed, and after the compulsories on the first day the team scores were D .D.R.. , 188.65; U.S.S.R., 188.55. The U.S.A. girls at this stage were seventh with 178.40. The American girls had also had a rough journey on the beam, but their misfortune came from some unhelp-

way. 路1 路


World Games Report by VANNIE EDWARDS, So. Eastern Louisian a College Photos by Don Wilkinson

For the first time since the World Games have featured Women 's Gymnastics as a part of the competition, the U.S. has produced a medal winner. She is Cathy Rigby, one of America's brightest hopes for the 19 72 Olympic Games. She is a member of the Scat's team from Long Beach, California, coached by Bud Marquette. The U.S. Women 's team finished in 7th place in ihe overall competition . One very significant factor in considering the finishing of the U .S. team was the general inexperience of the competitors on the floor. Because of injuries Linda Methany, former Olympian , and Roxan ne Pierce, a moderately proven National Competitor, had to miss the competition. The U.S. team was headed by two members with International experience, Cathy Rigby and Wendy Cluff; both girls were on the 1968 Olympic Team . They were joined by Cleo Carver of Seattle, Washington , and coached by George Lewis; Adele Gleaves of Louisville, Kentucky, and coached by Cab Caudill; Kim Chase, Reviere Beach, Florida, and coached by her father; Joan Moore, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and coached by Bill and Jeanie Coco. Other members on the team: Debbie Hill, Denver, Colorado, and coached by Rod Hill; Janet Cantwell, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and coached by the Cocos. Although the U .S. team was young and inexperienced , they had many exciting routines and drew a great deal of praise from European critics and coaches alike. Muriel Grossfeld, acting coach of the U.S. team, made the following comments: "A lthou gh they did not place as high as expected, the International judges and officials were very impressed. Ours is a young team and the maturing effect of this competition should work in our favor." Mrs. Grossfeld was accompanied by Bud Marquette and Vannie Edwards, who assisted in the coaching duties. Art Maddox, from Champagne, Illinois, accompanied the team as National Pianist. Under the direction of the National Head Coach, Mrs. Dale Flansaas, the U.S. Women's Team trained two and a half weeks at the training site at the YWCA in Reno, Nevada. Foilowing the training camp, the team spent two days at home before reporting to New Haven, Connecticut, for the final phase of the training camp under Muriel Grossfeld. Upon leaving the U.S., th e team competed against England in a dual meet. They then proceeded to the site of the World Games Championships in Yugoslavia. The training conditions there were very good; however, the coaching staff would have preferred that the team could have arrived at the site of the competition at least seven days prior to the opening ceremony. Being aware that the performers are young and inexperienced , it was felt that arriving early would allow the performers to adjust to the high level of competition. However, because the women's team accompanied the men's team , they could not arrive as early as desired. U.S. coaches became keenly aware of several new trends which they had been exploring in the U.S. until they were told they were completely wrong and changed them. In Free Ex the existence of very strong tumbling and the use of popular American music as accompaniment seemed to be the accepted method. In the area of vaulting the great distance of the on-flight of the Russian team with straight, tight bodies in line with the body on ascent and descent produced somewhat of a new aspect in flight. Also in the landing, the feet are landing well in front of the body while the force of contact is being absorbed by a half bent leg, allowing weight to arrive over the feet. It would be well for those coaching to observe the films from the competition and coach accordingly. Our big weakness is the lack of depth and personnel. The major problem of the competitors is that they are not exposed to Intern ational competitions to allow them to feel at ease and confident of their routines. These observations and v iews are submitted in hopes th at they will be of some assistance in evaluating how to handle our young gymnasts in the future.

SUMMARY - MINUTES OF THE FIG WOMEN'S TECHNICAL ASSEMBLY LJUBLJANA, YUGOSLAVIA OCTOBER, 1970 1. MADAME VILLANCHER congratul ated the Ljubl jana Orga niz ing Comm ittee for an excell entl y orga nized World Games Competition: Training faci lities; transportation to and from all training, courses, competitions, and assembli es; the Judges Course; Compulsory, Optional, and Fina l Competition s; and FI G Assemblies. All events during the two week FIG man ifestation were ca rri ed out accordi ng to the spec ifica tions set by the FIG. Thi s was the first time the Women's Technica l Committee of the FIG was sa ti sfied wi th the final results (scores! notes) of the entire competi tion . Twenty Brevet Judges were present in Lju bljana and took active part in the compet ition. Th is large number of well trained judges proved the results of the FIG system of cylica l instruction to be positive. It w ill now be poss ible to have Superior Judges from this same group of Brevet Judges, not on ly from the Technical Commi ttee of the FIG. 2. EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIPS-1971 MINSK The Ru ss ian Gy mnastic Federation is inspecting the facilities with great enthusiasm: The gym nasti c hall and the I<lrge modern hote l nearby are more than adeq uate; the apparatus meets all internationa l speC ifi ca tions; electroni c in struments are present in the large hall ; the Organizing Committee for M insk has several路 members in Lju bljana observing th e organizat ion of the competition ; and the meda ls and score sheets have been prepa red. The proposed dates are October 15, 16, and 17 of 197 1. Three gymnasts and one reserve from each cou ntry may be in attendance . M adame Demedenko was informed that she must bring al l the necessary sheets for preparation in Minsk to the next FI G Women's Techni ca l Com mittee. All info rmat ion must be in both French and Russian. 3. TECHNICAL REGULATIONS FOR ARTISTIC REGULATIONS The Com mittee stated that these regulations must be changed and amended due to the many changes and deve lopments in the competition, since the last publica tion in 1964. (Thi s does not refer to the Code of Points, but to the Regu lations Governing Competition.) It was hoped that during the 1971 Congress the proposa l of the new Tec hnical Regu lations (a mendments to the ex isti ng statutes) wou ld be ready for adoption. 4. OLYMPIC GAMES IN MUNICH-1972 The delegate from West Germany was questioned as to th e name of the President of the Tech nical Comm ittee in Munich for the Games. It was strongly stated that her presence at the First Techn ical Committee Meeting this w inter was mandatory. An offic ial paper from Munich with the requested names mu st be sent as soon as p(lssible. 5. GYMNASTICS MODERN The Technica l Committee has a sub-committee that concern s itself with Modern Gymnastics. This Committee is now preparing for the World Championships in Gymn astique Modern e. Courses are continuing accord ing to the sa me yea rl y schedule for trainers and judges. Presently a cou rse fo r judges and trainers is being prepa red fo r November 16 to 21 in Formia, Italy. Thi s course wil l be held fo r six days under the direction of Madame Gotta. The mornings w ill be reserved for practica l work and the afternoons for theory, fil ms, compos ition, and discuss ion of the diffi culties. For a comp lete schedu le for each day refer to page 44 of the FIG Bul letin Number 2 - June, 19 70. (The USA rece ived papers for the entry of 2 delegates to this cou rse. These papers were not forwarded to the Chairman of the Techni ca l Commi ttee or the Internationa l Delegate, so that th e necessary steps could have been taken to insure representation of the USA at thi s event. Upon return from Yugos lav ia, it was impossible wi th such short noti ce to send a qualified representati ve and to fully defray th e expense of the voyage.) All delegates were to know the Code of Points, the Techni ca l Regulations for Competitions, and bring their own ri bbon and rope. The Tec hnica l Committee would provide hoops and ba ll s. All delegates wou ld be expected to physica lly parti cipate during the practica l sessions of the course. To date 15 Federations have sent the formal entry papers w ith the names of thei r delegates. In the future Gymnast ique Moderne w ill have their separate Technica l Committee w ith a de legate from each member Federation . Current ly 29 countries belong to this area of Modern Gymnastics and pay the appropri ate tax to the FI G. It is now imposs ible to represent you r Federat ion for both Artistic and Gymnastique M odern e. No person w ill be accepted as a judge or delegate fo r Gy mnastique Modern e, if she also represents her Federat ion in Arti stic Gymnastics. The current delegates in Modern Gymnastics w ill serve

until 1972, w hen new delega tes may be appo inted, if the Federations wish, M ada me Gotta is now President of the Sub-Committee on Gymnast ique Moderne until 1972. Thi s sport of Modern Gym nasti cs is deve loping w ith much speed and ha ste. During the Varna World Championships many gymnasts partic ipated, but there were many difficulti es. It is hoped that the orga ni zation and regu lations wi ll be better prepared and organized in the futu re. In order to overcome the difficu ltues in theory and in the eva luation of the exercises, the Code of Pointage has been exp lic itly defined. World Championsh ips-Cuba 197 1 There are now on ly 6 and possibly 2 more teams entered for Cuba and it is questionable w hether all di fficulties w ill be surpassed ,enabling the Champ ionsh ips to be held. The Cuban Del ega te de livered the report describing the prepa rations in Cuba concernin g the World Champ ionshi ps. M adame Villancher stated that because so few Federations have en tered, it would be very bad propaganda and poor pub licity for future entra nce of Modern Gymnastics into the O lympic Games. In summation fo r Committee sta ted that, depending on the increase of tea m entri es, the Championships would be held. All further correspondence must be channell ed through the embass ies of the respecti ve nations, so that contact and in formation are assu red. 6. INTERNATIONAL JUDGES : During the World Championships there were 20 Brevets ea rn ed or reconfirmed, includ ing two new brevets from the USA-Mrs. Ernie Ca rter and M iss Sharon Va lley. The officia l list w ill be sent to the Secretary General, Max Bangerter, and the offic ial pronouncement w ill be sent to the Federation s. As of now other judges not on the li st wi ll be refu sed for major competit ions, World and O lympic Games. From this point in time judges earn ing the brevet must do so by judging 3 international meets. The names and resu lts of these competitions must be sent in to the Secretary General on the official forms as soon as possible after th e competi-

courses w ill be returned according to regulation to the FIG Techni ca l Com mittee. b) Continental Courses held during 1969-70: South Africa-19 70 DDR-Leipzi g- 1970 France-1969 USA- 1970 Japa n-1969 Yugoslavia- 1970 Norway-1969 c) Al l further continental and nationa l courses wi ll be simil ar and j udges will be thoroughly interrogated orall y and tested practica lly. Very little presentation on the actual Code of Points wi ll be given, since it is assu med that the delegates know it perfectly. Fi lms and video tapes will be used to the fu ll est during practical sess ions. The d ate of thi s proposed intercontinental course is as yet undetermined. d) The fi lm of the medium and superior difficul ties is nearl y finished for the arti stic gymnastics. Work is now taki ng place for the Modern Gymnastic diffi culty film. The information w ill be sent at once to the Federations. 7. COMPULSORY EXERCISES - Proposals concerning a new form. Madame Villancher stated that the FIG Tech nica l Committee fee ls that four yea rs is too long a peri od of time for compul sory exerci ses to ex ist since the sport is developing so quickly. The proposa l is: Vau lting- The vau lt wi ll be decided by the Tech nica l Com mittee and will be the sa me for fo ur years. Bars - The exercise must incl ude 8 medium difficulti es, includ ing the mount and the di smount, and no superior diffi culty. Beam- The duration of the exerc ise must be from 1 minute to 1 minute and 20 seconds. The exerci se must in cl ude 6 difficulties, 5 medium and 1 superior, including th e mount and the dismount. Floor Exercise- Th e duration of the exercise must be from 1 minute to 1 minute 20 seconds. The exercise must con tai n the prescri bed 9 medium and 1 superior difficu lty. No floor pattern or direction wi ll be specified. No music will be prescribed, but each team mem-

ti a ns.

ber must use the sa me mus ic.

a) 1971 Intercontinental Cou rse- Every country In general -Connections must be the same for the w hole team . Each coun try IS free to connect all the may send only 2 Brevet Judges. Only the best difficulties as they w ish, espec ial ly on the beam and the judges w ill be accepted because these ladies w ill then be qua lified to cond uct the Conti nentar--floor. It will not be possible to enter more than the max iCourses. The entire course wi ll be organized in a mum of medium and su perior di fficulties withou t drawing a penalty. Each element may be reversed and pernew manner. The entrance sheets w ill soon be sent to the memformed to the left or to the ri ght. Only the order of the elements is important.

and the floor all elements of modern gym nasti cs, elemen ts of supp leness, turn s, jumps, etc. may be utilized. No acroba tics or medium difficulties may be used as connecting elements of the beam or in the floor. The exercises by each tea m wou ld not have to be subm itted in w ritin g to the Technica l Committee. The Technica l Com mittee stated that they wou ld choose the most well known elements. Madame Vi llanc her was sure that more pleasu re wou ld be given to the w hole team, the coach, indiv idual joy of the gymnast, the judges, and the spectators if thi s system wou ld be adopted. She agai n stated that the Techni ca l Comm ittee was behind thi s proposal. Debate con tinu ed fo r one hour on thi s subject w ith the delegates from East Germany, Sweden, and the United States questioning the Tech ni ca l Comm ittee. Below is a summary of the arguments aga in st the proposa l presented by the three named delegations: a) It would· mea n that the Code of Points must aga in be changed to eval uate properl y the compul sory exerc ise, giv ing or alloting points for the originality of the exercise, the floor pattern and direction, and the general value/impress ion of the exercise. Answer : Yes. But, no ind ication of the formul a. b) It now seems that we are in essence performing two opt iona l exercises. Answer: No. The. exerci ses will not be eva lu 3ted in the same manner. c) How w ill a judge be able to detect differences in "the composition amon g team members, if they all do not execute each part correctly according to the team compos ition? Answer: The Tech nica l Committee has faith that all the Brevet Judges are extremely well qual ified and there will be no problem. d) Will countries be penalized for using the same connections as other co untries if thi s occurred by coin cidence? What if by intent? Answer: This wou ld be discussed by the Techn ical Committee. e) The current compul sories are very diffi cult in content and combination and, as shown by the scores in this World Ga mes Competition , have not been executed with the best possible technique and amplitude. Th erefore, there is no need to change in particular the fl oor exercise and the beam. Answer : Much progress wi ll occur in the next two yea rs, so the compul sory exercises must keep in step w ith the inev itable progress. f) Since no connection s or linking movements may be of med ium or superior difficulty, it wi ll be very diffi cult to compose the floor and beam in an interesting, exciting, and unu sual manner. Answer : Thi s is definitely not so and the Committee expects many unusual, exciting combina tions and sequences to be performed. g) How will the judge be able to remember and to pena li ze if the tea m uses the same connect ions in the opt iona l exercise as it used in the team oriented compulsory? Answer: Agai n, the Technical Committee restated its belief that the judges are most qualified and that the appropri ate mark s wo uld be given. The vote w as taken and the outcome was 13 agai nst and 14 in favor of the proposal of the Technica l Committee. The vote was as fo llows: Al geri a-yes Hungary-no West Germany-yes Italy-yes Australia-n o Japan-no Luxemburg-no Austria-no Belgi um-no Mongolia-yes Bu lga ri a-yes Norway-no Canada-delegate absent Netherlands-yes Cuba-yes Poland-no Denmark-n o East Germany-no Spa in-yes Roman ia-yes United Sta tes-no Sweden-no France-yes Switzerland-yes Russia-yes Great Britain-yes Yugoslav ia-no NOTE: Canada-absent Mongolia-no teilm as yet in Intern ational competition . Sw itzerland -no team entered in World Games.

Spai n- 3 gymnasts entered not a fu ll team .

Those proposa ls of the Federat ions that pertain to the women w ere then discussed prior to the Joint Technica l Assembly and th e General Assembly, so that the fee ling of the Women 's Techni ca l Comm ittee and to the Comm ittee of Directors. (Refer to pages 64-6 7 in the September 3rd Bulletin of the FIG-1970).

Proposal of Japan Japan had di fficu lty interpreting the marks fo r their continental course and the papers were subsequently return ed for the proper recording of points ea rn ed by each judge. In spite of this difficulty, the course was very well organized and technically correct. Several women were very wel l trained as a result of this course. Proposal of Israel Thi s was decided in the General Assemb ly. Admiss ion to the European Championships was refused. Proposal of France This proposa l has much merit and w ill be di sc ussed furt her at M insk in 1971. Proposal of Kuwait This proposa l was disa ll owed, sin ce there already is a World Championship in w hi ch all gymnasts 14 years and older are eligible to compete. Also Kuwait has never taken part in thi s World Cha mpionship. Proposal of Poland This proposa l was referred to the General AssemblyRe: Exclu sion of South Afri ca. Proposal of East Germany-OOR 1. It was accepted that th e World Championships for Modern Gymnastics should take pl ace in November or December, but was subject to approva l in the General Assembly. Approva l was gra nted. 2. It was approved and accepted that the control of Modern Gymnastics competitions mu st be done by mea ns of an official markin g sheet (j udges note or score paper). . 3. It was approved that only those judges who hold FIG licenses or w ho have successfully fol lowed a judges' course in modern gymnast ics w ill be cal led upon to officiate during the World Championshi ps. 4. Thi s proposa l concerning a single mark for the group exercises in Modern Gymnastics is being studied by the sub-comm iss ion. All further proposa ls conce rnin g the exclusion of South Africa by East Germany, Roman ia, Czechoslovakia, and Russia were referred to the General Assembly. Proposal of Russia 1. The Women's Comm ittee dec ided th at until the number of meda ls and method of condu ction for Modern Gym nastics is set, they would not approach the lac regarding inclusion of Modern Gym nastics in the Olympic Games. The proposa l, w hen presented, must ue compl ete and w ithout question. (During the Genera l Assembly, the FIG voted to accept Modern Gymnastics in the Program of the O lympi c Games and to make such a recommendation to the IOC when appropriate. 2. Concerning the proposa l to change the text and add a more advanced requirement for the exercises, the Com mittee stated th anhere were enou gh diffi culties by all the very good gymn asts, but that the proposal wo uld be further studied and reported on by the Techni cal Committee. 3. The proposal regard ing the number of gymnasts in the European Champ ionships was not entered in time, so it was refused. Proposal of Bulgaria Article 2: An swer: It is normal fo r a cou ntry holding an FIG manifestation to send a delega te, but it is not necessary to elect or allow a vote by th is person on the Technical Committee. Article 27: This proposal would be studi ed by the Committee of" Directors. M adame Villancher felt that she shou·ld be able to intervene. Article 33: Refer to the proposa l of Roumania concern ing this sa me arti cle 33, w hich was voted upon favorable : In the case of the same mark or score, th e finali sts shall be designated accordin g to the marks obta ined for the voluntary exerci ses at the apparatus in question . If the same mark is still obtained by both or several competitors, the designation wi ll be made according to the general results (a ll around). Proposal of Hungary The proposal of Hungary is very good and wi ll be further discussed in January at a meeting of the Technical Com mittee. A study of all acroba tic movements was made of the beam during the World Games and it w ill be prepa red for this January meet ing. All results of the meeting will be forward to the member federation s. Proposal of Russia All agreed that this proposal for .5 deduction for a fall from the ba rs was in keep ing w ith the development of gymnastics. It will be taken up agai n at the January meetin g, and information w ill be sent to the federat ion. 8. MODIFICATIONS OF TECHNICAL REGULATIONS Madame Villancher delivered the fee l ings of the IOC concerning the awa rd s for art istic gymnasti cs: The IOC states that gymnastics has too many medals, and therefore the new distribution s may be as follows:

·22·

The compu lsory and optional exerci ses would be performed to determine the all -a round plac ings and team champions. No meda ls would be awa rd ed. The best 20 or 30 gymna sts wou ld then go on to the second voluntary competition. Only thi s second optional compe tition on each apparatus. Meda ls would be given for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in each event. The entire proposa l is bein g studied by the Committee of Directors of the FI G. It was reconfirmed that a minimum number of points, at this time at least 7.5 per event, wou ld be necessary fo r competition in the Olympic or World aims. The age of the gy mnast has been offi cial ly set at 14 yea rs for competit ion in both arti sti c and modern gymnastics. The gymnast must be 14 during the yea r of competition - that is from January 1 to December 31 of that Olympic or World Games yea r. It was decided that the 4-inch landing mat was permiss ibl e in international and national competitions, although in Ljubljana it was necessary to use the eq ui pment provided by the Organi zing Committee. Th is eq uipment adhered to FIG specifications, so that all gymnasts were subject to the sa me conditions. GENERAL ASSEMBLY The General Assembl y lasted approx imatel y 10 hours. An attempt w il.1 be made here to summariz e those items of interest to the U .S.A. (Refer to the Agenda on page 49 of th e September 3rd Bulletin of the FIG 1970). It was dec ided that the Congress should be in the fall of every yea r and sepa rate from the competitions. Th e Secretary-Treasu rer reported mu ch difficu lty in correspondence, w ith fees, and w ith coope ration of the Federations. The past yea r show ed a smaller return from intern ational contests and meets. The financial report as appears on pages 29 to 33 of the Bulletin w as delivered to the Assembl y. The· rev ision of 42 statutes of the FIG were approved after long debate on several articles. The USGP was admitted to the FIG as the membe r Federation, thereby excl uding the AAU from International mem bership. The AAU was encouraged to support and condu ct compet ition s and joi n the US GF for the promotion and growth of the sport. Sou th Africa was not excluded at thi s time, since no member of that Federation was present to speak in their beha lf. (Visas were not issued by Yugoslavia.) The issue and note w ill be postponed until the 1971 Congress ofthe FIG. The majority vote of the Congress gave the authority and confidence to the Committee Director to revise the program and medal distribution fo r the Olympic Games as requested by the IOC. The Assemb ly voted not to consider the late application for candidacy by Winnipeg, Canada, for the World Championships. The Bu lgarian Federation was des ignated to orga ni ze this championship for 1974. The Cuban Report concernin g the preparations for the Modern Gymnastic Championsh ips was heard. Although on ly 6 to 8 countries have indica ted team entries, Cuba was told to continue preparations. Israel was aga in denied the favor of parti cipating in the Europea n championships, since they are not a country within the boundaries of Europe. It wou ld set a precedent fo r other nation s of Africa and As ia to also request this ri ght to participate. There is still no offer by a fede ration to organize the 1973 Gymna strada. The Europea n championships for men w ill be held in Madrid in 1971 and in Min sk for the women in 1971. M adrid, Spa in, was des ignated to organize the 50th Congress of th e FIG in September, October or November of 197 1. Ljubljana, Yugos lavia, October 1970.

Women's World Games ... lmpressions of Muriel Grossfeld. Cleo Carver injured her foot, but was able to compete anyway. The USA team placed 7th. Kathy Rigby was 15th all around with a silver medal on beam. The changes in women's compulsories were discussed. The required moves will be published at a later date. It is thought that the vault will be a cartwheel 'h turn off. Miss Grossfeld suggested a training program for USA Women gymnasts: We should divide the United States into 5 or 6 regions. One national coach would head each region. Other coaches would assist the coach on their best events. Surrounding regions would compete with one another using all Olympic procedure. She feels that gymnasts should live away from home 6 month~ out of the year. A regional executive would gather the routines of each Olympic aspirant and send them to the head coach so she would know how training is progressing without actually being there. New Trends in Women's Gymnastics noted by Grossfeld. Vaulting : Very little twisting vaults ... lower pre-flight...arms thrown sideways in preflight before contact witJ1 the horse. The better the afterflight...the better the score. Those who stuck their vaults ... better scores. Floor: The girls who exhibited the most skills scored better. Russians did very difficult dance moves. USA needs better music which is not just pieced together ... better arrangements. We should use American music which the Europeans are familiar with. Many very flashy moves are being used. The Russians had good technique and presentation which the USA still lacks. Not much real jazz was used. Beam: The girls who just stayed on the beam scored better. Walkovers, back handsprings and aerials off are no longer enough! Bars : East Germans and Russians had many flashy arm movements and brought in better scores. Rigby had the best optional routine. More difficulty is being put in now. There is less work on LB and the routines are short and quick.

Compulsory exercise requirements for the 1972 Olympic Games for Women ... specific elements must be executed in a certain order, the gymnast is given the option of using her own connections for connecting the stated specific elements. Once each team decides on the connecting moves used between the required elements, the whole team must do the same connections. Each team may select their own music for floor exercise and once selected, each member of the team must perform the same music. Connections must be only one movement and must not be of medium or superior difficulty. Required elements may be performed on either side, or turning either way, or on either leg, as the case may be. Time for floor exercise and beam is minimum of one minute and maximum of one minute and 20 seconds. The uneven bars will have approximately 8 elements. The compulsory vault will be decided by the technical committee (rumors my way have it that it will be a cartwheel 'h turn off) .. . The decision to eliminate the old method on compulsory exercises and replace it with the new system of required elements was 14 for the change and 13 to retain the old system.

Report by Tom Hall strom, Coordinator Physica l Education and Athl etics, O maha Public Schop ls Three large girl s' gy mnastics meets were held during the month of November in the Oma ha (Nebraska) public schools. An estimated 500 entries participated in the two junior hi gh and one senior high championship meets. Gymnasts ca me from 20 secondary schools. The girls ex hibited a great amount of poise and professionalism in th e va ri ous sk ill s invo lving the five Olympic events and the trampoline. Five yea rs ago gi rl s' gym nastics w as nonexistent in the O maha sc hoo l system. What is responsible for this rap id in crease in interest? Dr. Tom Hallstrom, coordi nator of physical ed ucation, feels that th e loca l v ideo taping of routi nes and 8mm loop film ing of gymnasts' skil ls has been of great ass istance to the teachers and students. Another aide provided was a local curri culum project wh ich arranged a five-leve l progression of lea!ning in gymnastics into a guide ca lled Developmental ~ymnastlcs. Certifi cates of achievement are awarded as a youngster is able to master the req uirements at the various leve ls. Saturday gymnastics classes and even ing age group workouts and competition have helped to in still considerable interest in younger children . There is still much work to be done, but Hallstrom feels that in another five years th e Omaha program might eq ual some of the fine programs now in existence in other parts of th e country.

THE 1820 SETTLERS CUP Report by Biddy Handley South Africa and in particular the Eastern Province, that is Port Eli zabeth and Grahamstown , has been the scene of great historical celebrations on the anniversary of th_e landing of the 1820 British settlers in September, a century and a half ago. In conjunction with the many cultural celebrations it was decided by the Border Amateur Gymnastic Association and the Rhodes University Physical Education Department to stage an 1820 Settlers Gymnastic Cup competition in Grahamstown, which it is hoped will become an annual event. The South African Amateur Gymnastic Union gave the green light for the competition , and preparations went into full swing. South Africa's six best gymnasts - men and women - were invited to participate as well as the six most promising junior gymnasts from the South African National "B" team. The women per-

Preparing for Back Straddle over Low Bar You don ' t need the uneven bars to prepare for a back staddle over the low bar from a long hang on the high bar. You can use the rings to learn the timing of the leg action and to develop pulling power. Fig. 1. Start in a hanging "L" position. Fig. 2. Whip the legs downward and slightly backward, back arched. Fig. 3. Without hesitation, whip the legs to the forward position, pulling

)'"":('3"

Fig. 1. When trying the back straddle on the bars, try it first from a squat position, regular grip on the high bar. Fig. 2. Cast the legs forward with a pulling action. Fig. 3. Then suddenly drop the legs downward straightening the arms and extending the body downward with an arch. Relax the shoulders completely and FORCE THE CHEST FORWARD when dropping the legs. (Forcing the chest forward with the body arched is a must to create a good return swing rearward enabling you to better pass over the low bar). Fig. 4.

Marie Oe Wet, winner of 1820 Settlers Trophy.

formed both compulsory and voluntary exercises and the men voluntary exercises, spread over two evenings . Capacity crowds of approximately 800 each night were thrilled with the grace, strength and control of the gymnasts. The high level of performances, particularly of Francois Stander on the parallel bar, Marie de Wet on the beam and Serfie Potgieter in the floor exercise, were greeted by cheers from the spectators. Marie de Wet, South African champion in 1969 and placed second in the South African Cup earlier this year, was never challenged during the competition. She gave us a particularly sparkling performance during the compulsory exercises on Friday evening. Her final total was 72.75 . Thirteen-year-old Hester van den Berg did very well to be placed second overall. She gained three scores of nine or more for her compulsory routines on stepped bars, beam and floor exercise on Friday evening. She is an exceptionally promising young gymnast. Elise Schoeman, who gained third-place overall, had a disappointing performance, particularly on the voluntary stepped bar on Saturday evening. Her voluntary beam sequence is interesting and original, and has some fine moves. Francois Stander, South African champion in 1969, gave some outstanding performances particularly on the parallel bars and horizontal bar where he scored 9.30 and 9.10, respectively. Unfortunately a slip on the pommel horse caused a break in his normally outstanding routine on that apparatus. In second place and following very closely in Stander's footsteps was a much improved Willem Boom . He put up very good performances on the pommel horse, rings and horizontal bar gaining scores of nine or more on these apparatus. Serfie Potgieter, in third-place overall, gained 9.30 for both his floor exercise and his vault. The former was a superb exercise filled with excellent tumbling. On both evenings, various displays were provided by local clubs and schools ; these included vaulting with trampetes, agility and team freestanding items.

o Variations:

A. Back straddle to suspension on low bar.

B. Pass bent legs over low bar to front lying position

C. Tuck legs to squat on low bar

D. Straddle back to catch in free support, free backhip circle to?

Mademoiselle Gymnast Index Vol. I-IV MADEMOISELlE GYMNAST An Index fo r the First Four Volumes by Ka thy Leu - Physical Education Maior and A. B. Fred erick - Asst Prof. WISCONSIN STATE UNIVERS ITY (Superio r) I reca ll my fru stration some yea rs ago w hen in the absence of sufficient indexing for the Modern Gymnast, I paged aiml ess ly through the content of Vo lumes I and II in an effort to locate articl es and other usefu l bits of informat ion. Th e only way to make this job efficient was to construct a personal index to the con tent The index was later published in the MG so that any reader might take advantage of its useful ness. Mademoiselle Gymnast has been without an index for fou r volumes. Until now, perhaps you, too, have had the experience of expending va luable time in locat ing materia ls from its pages . M y initial experience was so va luable to me that I decided that I would try to locate a you ng lady wi th a deep interest in gym nasti cs to assist w ith the index. Miss Kathy Leu offered her serv ices and has done a commendabl e job. It was the kind of independent study that prov ided for her ·a true lea rnin g expe ri ence In her undergraduate prepa r" tion in rhysica l education. Mille G began as a supplement to the July-August 1965 edition of The Modern Gymnast. We have used the abbreviation "S" to reference articles from thi s one issue. The greater portion of references w il.! be fo und. under the usua l subject and contri butor sect ions as follows: Gymnasts Natasha Kuchenskaya from the U.S.S.R. (Sabirov) Sept-Oct/68, pp. 18- 19 or Sabirov , Yuri Nata sha Kuchenskaya from the U.S.S. R. Sept Oc1./68, pp. 18- 19 Volume numbers are not found in thi s index, but genera lly speaking a complete volume covers a spa n of time para ll eling the school yea r (Sept to June), and fi ve numbers are issued for each volu me. Currently we are In Volume V for 1970-71. It was not possib le to index every single in stance of, for exa mple, reports of scores, but all major articl es are indexed. W e hope that the index wi ll be va luable to you in you r own work. In the future indi ces for single volumes w ill appea r regularly in the number fo llowing the last number of a comp leted volume. Note: Vo lume I appeared in fou r numbers in 1966.
