Extractions: To the ancient Greeks, physical fitness was paramount and all Greek cities had a "gymnasia," a courtyard for jumping, running, and wrestling. Over the years, gymnastics has undergone many changes. Originally, men's competition included swimming and running events, and did not acquire its present form until the 1924 Games in Paris. During the 1920s, women organized and participated in gymnastic events. The first women's Olympic competition was held at the 1928 Games in Amsterdam. Gymnastics competitions are divided into three parts. On the first two days, all gymnasts perform compulsory and optional exercises on each piece of equipment, referred to in gymnastics as "apparatus." Those scores determine the winners of the team event. The 36 gymnasts who achieve the highest combined individual scores move on to the individual all-around competition. Based on the combined scores from the team and the all-around, the top eight scorers on each apparatus advance to the finals.
Extractions: Sponsored by The Decathlon in Olympic History Table of Contents: The Jim Thorpe Story When King Gustav V of Sweden presented awards at the 1912 Olympic Games of Stockholm, he proclaimed to the decathlon winner, an American Indian named Jim Thorpe, as the world's top athlete. "You sir, are the world's greatest athlete." Incidentally, Jim is purported to have replied, "Thanks, King" to the Swedish monarch, a story, true or not, which itself has become part of the Thorpe saga. Ever since, the Olympic decathlon champion or world record holder has been dubbed "the World's Greatest Athlete." And rightly so, since the decathlon is the only objective test of all around athletic ability. Decathletes must contest ten separate events and have those performances tallied on a standard scoring table. The decathlon measures basic sporting ability like jumping, sprinting and throwing. Within the backdrop and rules of track and field, decathlon champions must exhibit, the 4 S's: speed, spring, strength and stamina. Since 1912 great decathlon champions like Bob Mathias, Rafer Johnson, Bruce Jenner and Daley Thompson and others have become household names. But they all owe much to the legend of Thorpe.

Women In Gymnastics - Famous Gymnasts The US Women's gymnastics team had performed almost flawlessly, but now their a badlanding, belted down the runway, and vaulted her way into olympic history. http://historypages.org/gymnastics/1996.html
Extractions: he Russians were on the floor, always a high scoring event for them, and Dominique Moceanu had just fallen on both her vaults. The U. S. Women's Gymnastics team had performed almost flawlessly, but now their Gold medal chance looked like it could slip away. Coach Bela Karolyi shook his fist and shouted, "Give me one last vault, give me one last good vault!" With life-or-death determination, Kerri Strug, her ankle already throbbing from a bad landing, belted down the runway, and vaulted her way into Olympic history. Not since Shun Fujimoto's gut-wrenching dismount for the rings with a broken leg to win the 1976 team Gold for Japan, had such a display of courage been seen in international gymnastics. Kerri Strug's valor in the face of pain, her dedication her to teammates and their dreams of gold, provided the most memorable moment of the 1996 Olympic Games. In the long run, this sacrifice was not needed, nor would it normally have even been permitted. The American team's lead would have held without it, but in that moment, no one knew for sure. She and her teammates had been picked from the cream of a very good crop of gymnasts, and their superiority had been honed on the floors, bars, vaults, and beams of international competitions for a number of years. Shannon Miller was already America's most decorated gymnast, and a former Olympic medal winner, when she joined the team that came to be known as the Magnificent Seven. Miller is the only American in history to win two consecutive World Championships all-around titles.
Leon Stukelj - Ave Triumphator gymnastics Academy Invited Guests at the »Ave Triumphator!« gymnastics Academy thesporting biography of Leon tukelj, olympic history, to anthropological http://stukelj.infotehna.si/english/events.htm
Extractions: "Ave, triumphator!" is the main event in the celebration of the hundredth birthday of the oldest Olympic champion in the world. The event will be stylistically linked to the sporting biography of Leon tukelj, Olympic history, to anthropological and civilisational trends in physical training, the body aesthetic, and the synchronism of mind and body. "Ave, triumphator!" is the identity of culture - art, therefore - and sport. The celebration will seek out referential trends in Hellenism and Antiquity. On the ontological level (relationship of the subject to the universe, to the self and others) we will extol the identity of mind and body. On the aesthetic level we will delve into all the diverse manifestations of the body aesthetic, deriving from the relationships between body and movement, body and space, and body and time. Gymnastics will be the Archimedean focal point of the celebrations: "where beauty overcomes power".

OU Women's Gymnastics History :: OU Women's gymnastics history. The University of Oklahoma added women's gymnasticsto its athletic roster in champ, earned a berth on the 1988 US olympic team. http://www.fansonly.com/schools/okla/sports/w-gym/archive/040401aaa.html
Extractions: April 4, 2001 The University of Oklahoma added women's gymnastics to its athletic roster in 1981, at the encouragement of men's coach Paul Ziert. Ziert served as head coach for both programs until he left OU in 1984. Already a prolific men's coach, Ziert amassed a 23-10 record in his three seasons as the women's head coach. The '84 season marked former assistant Becky Switzer's first at the helm for the Sooners. That same year Oklahoma won the team's first Big Eight conference title, a feat OU went on to repeat in 1985, 1986, 1991 and 1993. In 1985 the Sooners qualified to the NCAA National Championships for the first time as a team. They finished 10th at the NCAA meet, where Amy Priest became Oklahoma's first female All-American thanks to a second-place vault finish. In 1987 OU hit the big time with its first NCAA national champion when Kelly Garrison won the first of two consecutive all-around crowns. (Garrison also finished eighth on beam in those championships.) Also adding her name to the record books in '87 was Cassie Frey (who would go on to coach 2000 Olympian Tasha Schwikert). Frey finished seventh in the all-around and fifth on uneven bars at the NCAA.

GR Portugal - The Sport - The History Brief history of Rhythmic gymnastics The remotest origins of Rhythmic gymnasticscan be traced back to the Rhythmic gymnastics became an olympic sport in http://homepage.esoterica.pt/~grd/alfa/desp/hist/ingl/
Extractions: The International Gymnastics Federation (FIG) officially recognized Rhythmic Gymnastics as a competition sport in the year of 1962, with the name of Rhythmic Sports Gymnastics. In 1963, an international tournament took place in Budapest, Hungary, with the participation of 28 gymnasts of 10 European countries. This tournament would later be officially considered as the first World Championship of Rhythmic Gymnastics. Ludmila Savinkova, from USSR, became then the 1st World Champion of this sport. Rhythmic Gymnastics became an Olympic sport in 1984, in Los Angeles, USA, with the gymnast Lori Fung from Canada being acclaimed the 1st Olympic Champion. In 1996, in Atlanta, USA, the speciality of groups was admitted for the first time as an Olympic competition, having the group from Spain obtained the 1st Olympic Group Title. In 1998, a decision from FIG came to suppress, for consistency reasons, the designation of "Sports" until then attributed to the competitive component. Both components of this sport are since then designated by the same generic name of Rhythmic Gymnastics, which they still possess today.
