n the fall of 1994, USA Gymnastics created a Task Force to examine its response to the Female Athlete Triad (disordered eating, amenorrhea and osteoporosis). This Task Force was created because USA Gymnastics recognizes its responsibility to w1derstand the Female Athlete Triad and to ac tively pursue policies that will provide a healthy environment in which gymnasts can pursue their goals.

t its root, disordered eating is a psychological problem, not a nutritional problem. In making that recognition, the Task Force concluded that all efforts must be made to ensure that all gymnasts participate in an environment that leads to positive self-esteem as the best prevention for disordered eating and potential subsequent health problems.

any steps have been taken by USA Gymnastics to ensure a positive environment for gymnasts and to decrease the incidence of disordered eating and triadrelated problems. Such measures include, but are not limited to: educational information on nutrition and psychology being made available to members through USA Gymnastics magazine, Technique magazine and our merchandise department; educational sessions provided to professionals at the state, regional and national Congresses of USA Gymnastics; a sport psychology consultant and nutritionist on staff to work with our female National Team Members; and parent education disseminated through the National Team meetings and TOPs camps. dditional steps were recommended by the Task Force to help athletes, coaches, judges, parents, club administrators and USA Gymnastics administrators.

DEAR MARY LOU: I'm a Level 8 gymnast at Sunrise Gymnastics Academy. I read the book "Little Girls in Pretty Boxes," and it made me sick. I was wondering if you've read the book, and w hat do you think about it? ,eanette Ables Wicilita, Kansas

DEAR JENNA: Yes, I had arthroscopic surgery on my right knee six weeks before the 1984 Olympics! Make sure you listen to your doctor and do all of your rehabilitation. You'll be back in the gym in no time!

DEAR MALLORY: Try another gym or your local Y. WCA. Keep looking until you find a place you are happy with. Gymnastics is such a fun sport, I'd hate to see you quit because of a bad experience.

DEAR

DEAR MARY LOU: I'm 12 years old

MARY

LOU:

I'm from Fliptastic Gynmastics. I'm 11 years old and a Level 6 gymnast. On beam I get nervous and shake. I can' t get tight so I falloff or have big wobbles. Then I get a low score. What could help me? Allly Kistler Escalon, California

DEAR AMY: There's no substitute for preparation. When I was training at Kara/yi's, we spent more time on beam than any other event. I suggest you do the same. The more comfortable and prepared you are, the less nervous you'll be.

DEAR MARY LOU: I'm 14 years old

DEAR MARY LOU: I used to be a Level 5 gymnast, but I quit because my gym was always changing coaches. The last coach we had always yelled at us . I really like doing gymn astics. What should I do? Mallory Calla/lnll Tualatin, Oregon

and a Level 8 gymnast. I'm working out 30 hours a week. Do you think that is too much for me, considering I have lots of school work? When I was back in West Virginia I went to your old gym called Aerials. It is still pretty nice.

DEAR MARY LOU: I'm 10 and a Level 6 gynmast. I'm scared of a back handspring on beam. I had it once but fell on the beam and got a strawberry. It hurt! Now I'm scared to do it. I've tried everything. Can you give me some advice? Also, do you think your baby will ever do back handsprings on the beam?

Brittany Mayer La Canada, California

DEAR JEANETIE: No, Idid not read the book, and don't ever intend to. I have noth· ing but positive and terrific things to say about gymnastics and my coach Bela Karolyi. Maybe that's why I wasn't asked to be inter· viewed,' that doesn't sell books! and will be competing Level 9 this year. In the middle of August I had arthroscopic surgery on my left knee. I was wondering if you have ever had surgery? If so, how long d id it take you to fully recover?

of my teanmlates are pressuring me to move up. I want to be a Level 6, but I don't think I'm ready. Help?

Spa'1~ ~!l_verji

DEAR BRITTANY: How are your grades? If the 30 hours in the gym is not interfering with your school work, then it's okay. Many gymnasts are able to apply the discipline that they learn from their sport to their schoolwork. However, if your schoolwork is suffering, you may want to cut back your hours in the gym.

Betil Fowler Madisonville, Tellnessee

DEAR BETH: Every gymnast has had a strawberry from falling off beam at one time or another. And believe me, I know it hurts! Take yourself back down to the low beam, and keep practicing there until you feel safe enough to go back up to the high beam. My new daughter Shayla is not even walking yet, but maybe one day, if she wants, she will be agymnast too.

DEAR MARY LOU: I'm a Level 5 gynmast. Our gym has been going through some rough tinles. A lot of gymnasts left. My coach asked me if I wanted to be a Level 6, but I'm not sure I want to be a Level 6 because I don' t think I'm ready. All

else. That is what brought me back into the gym. I knew that I missed working out, and I wanted to learn more. You really have nothing to lose if you enjoy what the sport gives you.

DEAR KIM: I'm 11 and a Level 6 gynmast. How old were you when you were a Level 6 gynu1ast? How much conditioning do you do? Lallren Van Cleave Worthillgton, Ohio DEAR LAUREN: In 1986, I started com·

peting just days before my tenth birthday. At that time there was a different level system. I competed as a Class /I which is about equal to a Levell or 8. I do about an hour of conditioning every morning. That is one of the most impor' tant parts of my training. DEAR KIM: I'm 14 years old, and I was in Level 8 before I quit. When you quit how did you get enough courage to get back into gynmastics? I still love the sport, but I do not kno w how to get enough courage to go back. Jaim e Miller Spring Hill, Florida DEAR JAIME: As long as you still love gym·

nastics, you shouldn't worry about anything

DEAR KIM: I'm 11 years old and a Level 5. I'm having trouble with my handstand on the beam. No matter how hard I try I just can' t get all the way to the top . Sometimes I even get a little scared when I'm on the high beam. Do you think you can help? Lisa Vierra Los Banos, California DEAR LISA: Don't give up. Perfecting a

handstand, especially on the beam, takes a lot of patience and repetition. Practice holding your handstand on the floor as often as possible. Kick up against a wall if you need a little help keeping your balance. Once these handstands start to improve, it will be much easier on the beam. DEAR KIM: I'm having trouble w ith my giants on the single bar. I just barely make it around and bend my arms. My coach says it is because I don' t have a cast handstand before I go into it. Do you have any pointers? Kristin Wesley Lakelmld, Florida DEAR KRISTIN: Your coach is correct.

Starting in a stretched handstand will give you more power to go over the bar. Then fall with

a hollow body position until you reach where the low bar would be. Open your shoulder and hip angle as you swing through the bottom so that you can give 0 strong kick through the upswing. Be sure to switch or flip your wrists when you reach the top to help you keep your arms straight. DEAR KIM: I'm 9 years old and a Level 5. I just moved to Vermont. At my oId gym, we didn't have to circle our arms before doing a handspring vau lt. At my new gym, my coaches want me to circle my arms before vau lting. Is there anything that would help me get used to this? Kelly Stll rgis Middlesex. Vermont DEAR KELLY: When you learn a skill one way, it is always going to feel a bit awkward at

first to change your technique. The more times you practice vaulting with an arm circle, the eas· ier it will get. Vaulting onto stacked up mats rather than the horse may be beneficial for awhile to help you get used to the arm circle. DEAR KIM: What are you doing for the holidays this year? Jessica Roberts Rolling Meadows, Illin ois DEAR JESSICA: For me, the holidaysare for

spending and apprecioting time with my family. Since I will be training, my Grandma and the rest of my family will probably come to my house.

*SEE PAGE 33 FOR LOW FAT, GOOD TASTING HOLIDAY RECIPES!!

By Robert C. Deutz and Elizabeth w. Cranston Grad uate Research Assistants, Laboratory for Elite Athlete Performance, Center fo r Sports Medicine and Sport Sciences, Georgia State University

Under the direction of Dr. Dan Benardot, PhD, RD, LD National Team Nutri tionist, USA Gym nastics

any people associate the holiday season with fattening foods and weight gain, but this doesn't have to be the case. Everyone can enjoy the season with friends and family without experiencing fear of weight gain. All it takes is a little planning for everyone to enjoy the holidays without guilt or fear of eating unhealthy foods. It's also important to consider that what you do most of the time is the critical fac tor in determining performance and health. If you eat properly most of the time, then you should feel very good abou t enjoying a slice of apple pie with members of your family. Your goal for most of the time should be the consumption of lots of carbohydrates (plenty of fruits, vegetables, grains and cereals), moderate protein (don't be afraid to have meat occasionally), and food that is low in fat (avoid foods that are fried or high in visible fat, as much as pOSSible). Also, as a priority, consume small amounts frequently enough (about every 2.5 hours) that you never let yourself get hungry.

M

These days, most supermarkets carry many reduced fat and fat-free products that have just as much flavor as their high fat counterparts. Some convenience items that can be purchased in lower fat varieties include: cheese, ice cream, tortilla U S A

chips, margarine, dressings and dips, frozen entrees and even cookies. It is also possible to significantly reduce the amount of fat in recipes without sacrificing flavor. Examples of recipe substitutions include the following: Nonfat yogurt or applesauce in place of oils in baked goods Nonfat yogurt in place of mayonnaise in salad dressings and sour cream in vegetable dips Two egg whites or 1/4 cup commercial egg substitute in place of one whole egg Skim or low fat milk instead of whole milk, half and half, or cream White meat in place of dark meat, when consuming poultry Lean ground turkey in place of ground beef Another way to reduce the fat in a meal is to change the cooking method. Cooking methods that limit added fat to a meal can help keep dietary fat levels low. Look for recipes that use cooking methods such as steaming, broiling, roasting, grilling, or baking. Methods such as frying or sauteing will increase the fat content in a recipe and should be used infrequently. Cutting visible fat off red meat and removing skin from poultry before cooking will also help decrease fat levels. These ideas can help you adapt a favorite recipe, which may be typically

For many people, the holidays are the busiest time of year. Between work or school, practice, visits from relatives, and holiday shopping, it' s difficult to find time to prepare good meals, so eating out has become the solution. Contrary to popular belief, restaurants can be a healthy alternative to home cooked meals. A 1988 National Restaurant Association survey found that close to 90 % of table service restaurants will accommodate special requests. Look for key words on menus such as steamed, broiled, roasted, baked or grilled. Ask for items to be served without butter or oils. Avoid cream sauces, or have them served on the side so you can have the amount you choose. Don't be afraid to ask the server specific questions about how food is prepared. Keep in mind that a few indulgences during the season are not going to affect performance. Don't be concerned with every single item that is consumed. Instead, look at food intake over time, remembering that eating a few foods higher in fat can be balanced by consuming other foods lower in fat during the day. Be aware of substitutions, low fat preparation methods, and healthy options in restaurants, and enjoy the holiday season to its fullest with family and friends.

The 1995 Rhythmic World Championships took place in Vienna, Austria, September 19-24. This event was the qualifying competition for the 1996 Olympic Games for individual competitors. The top 35 gymnasts from this competition (limit two per country) earned a berth for their country in the Olympic Games. USA's Jessica Davis, 17, from San Anselmo, Calif., took 24th (Competition 1) in the all -around and earned the U.S. a spot in the 1996 Olympic

I.!:=========~

Games in Atlanta, Ga . Davis trains at Gymmarin Pacific with her coach Jan Exner. Davis summed up her experience at the World Championships by saying, "1was happy that I went out and did what I wanted to accomplish by earning a spot for the U.S. in the '96 Olympics. However, I was a little bit disappointed in my performance because I wanted to make all of my routines."

,

Tina Tharp from Jacksonville, Fla ., took 55th in the all-around in her first World Championships. Tharp trains at International Rhythmic Gymnastics and is coached by Efrossina Anguelova and Mila Marinova. USA Gymnastics Rhythmic Program Director Nora Campbell said, "In 1992 there were 50 qualifiers to the individual competition at the Olympic Games. This year there are only 35 plus five wild card invitations. We feel very good to have qualified one athlete to the 1996 Olympic Games. The competition was very intense and difficult. The technical level

of all the

gymnasts was the highest it has ever been ." There were 97 competitors in the world Championships representing 43 countries. Only 15 countries qualified two athletes to the 1996 Olympic Games. The 1996 Rhythmic National Championships is tentatively set for June 1-3 . The 1996 Olympic Trials for Rhythmic Gymnastics is scheduled for June 25-26 in Boston, Mass.

The

World Team Trials took place in Austin, Texas, at the Frank Erwin Center, Septemoer 8-9. For the men, 40% of their National Championships score combined with 60% of their World Team Trials score to deter路 mine the World Championships Team. For the women, 30%of their National Championships score combined with 70% of their World Team Trials score to deter路 mine the World Championships Team. Both Dominique Moceanu and Shannon Miller were near flawless in both the compulsory and optional competition. Moceanu outscored Miller in compulsories 39.349 to 39.312, while Miller outscored Moceanu in optionals 39.461 to 39.336. Jaycie Phelps injured her knee and withdrew from the World Team Trials competition, however, using 100%of her score from the National Championships, she remained in third place in the final ranking. Kerri Strug, Dominique Dawes, Amy Chow, and Doni Thompson rounded out the top seven. However, Dawes, who had been

Chow sprained her ankle during practice just prior to her departure to Japan, and was also unable to make the trip. This opened the door for eighth place Theresa Kulikowski and ninth place Mary Beth Arnold to join the World Championships team. Andree Pickens, who finished tenth, was the traveling alternate for the World Championships.

M

ihai Bagiu won the compulsory competition scoring 56.025 to John Roethlisberger's 55.7B7. Blaine Wilson was in third with a 55.300 and Josh Stein was in fourth with 54.962. The men's compulsory pommel horse routine proved to be a challenge for the men. Bagiu was the only athlete to score above a 9.00 scoring a 9.325. Roethlisberger won the aptional competition with a 56.425 to Wilson's 56.050 and Kip Simons, 55.325.

ifteen-year-old Theresa Kulikowski competed in her first international competition at the 1995 World Championships in Sabae, Japan. After placing eighth in the all-around at the World Team Trials, Theresa was prepared to travel with the team as the alternate. However, one week prior to the trip to Japan, she learned that Dominique Dawes was injured and unable to compete at the World Championships- so Kulikowski was placed on the team. "Igot nervous when Ifound out because I had never competed internationally before or in such a big meet," said Kulikowski. "But it was very exciting I" When asked about the best part of the tr,ip, Kulikowski said, "I liked trying on kimonos and contributing to the U.S. teams bronze medaL" The worst part for Kulikowski was the stress of such a high level competition and trying to adjust in a foreign country. "It IVas also difficult being away from my family for so long" she added. '

F

Kulikowski began gymnastics when she was two-and-a-half years old. "During my sister's gymnastics classes, I'd run .in and try to do stuff," she said. "My parents decided to enroll me also, I started gymnastics at a YMCA program in Germany where my father was stationed in the Army." Although she spent four years in Germany, she now trains at Colorado Aerials in Colorado Springs, Colo. She's coached by Tom and Lori Forster. "I like the altitude at my gym," explained Kulikowski. "It's very positive, and the coaches care about us as people, as well as gymnasts." C,oach Lori Forster said, "Theresa is especlOily fun to choreograph routines for because she has beautiful lines and she's extremely flexible. She can do almost anything Iask her to do." As for her future, Kulikowski would like to become a sports psychologist. Perhaps she can share her experiences about her first World Championships with athletes she counsels in the future.

laine Wilson began the sport of gymnastics at age four. like most of the members on the U.S. National Team, he was flipping around the house, so his parents put him in gymnastics. "I did a lot of sports when I was young," explained Wilson. "Especially soccer- I played soccer up until seventh grode, and then I hod to decide which sport to stick with. I almost chose soccer, but I decided to stay with gymnastics because it is on individual sport, plus you could go to the Olympics." The Olympics have been on Wilson's mind for a long time, but he said that it wasn't until he was a junior or senior in high school that he realized they might become a reality. Wilson is certainly on track to make the 1996 Olympic Team. He took third all-around at the 1995 Coco-Colo Notional Championships and second all-around at the

B

1995 World Team Trials. His top finishes at these two competitions placed him on his first World Championships Team. In Japan at the 1995 World Championships, Wilson finished 25th all-around and helped his team to a ninth place finish. "It was my first time to compete at a World Championships, and it was very exciting," said Wilson. "The competition was intense, but it's only bod if you let it get to you. We (the U.S. men's team) turned the intensity into a positive." When asked about the '95 World Championships Team, Wilson said, "I think our team was very good. We were a close knit team. We all got along and worked as a unit, which is what you have to do. We come to Japan two weeks early for a training camp prior to the competition. It was a long trip, but it was also very good. There were not distractions, just gymnastics. It really got the team unified."
