In addition to being the first American in history to receive a perfect "10," Mitch went on to capture a Silver medal for Vaulting and two Bronze medals for Rings and Parallel Bars. As the number one ranked gymnast in 1983 and 1984, Mitch invented two skills now named internationally after him.

History of Artistic Gymnastics
Gymnastics, as an activity, has existed for over 2,000 years, but its development as a competitive sport began just a little more than 100 years ago. During the 1800’s, mass and individual exhibitions were conducted by various school clubs, athletic clubs and ethnic organizations such as the Turnvereins and Sokols. Although slow to catch on in the schools, gymnastics did flourish in the Turnvereins and Sokols. It was introduced to the United States and its school systcms in the 1830’s by such immigrants as Charles Beck, Charles Follen and Francis Lieber. The International Gymnastics Federation (FIG) was formed in 1881, then called the Bureau of the European Gymnastics Federation, opening the way for international competition. In the United States, the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) assumed control of gymnastics, along with most other amateur sports, in 1883. Prior to this time gymnastics “championships” were held by various clubs and organizations. The first large-scale meeting of gymnasts was the 1896 Olympics, where Germany virtually swept the medal parade. Seventy-five gymnasts from five countries competed in the men's horizontal bar, parallel bars, pommel horse, still rings, and vault events.

World Gymnaestradas
Rhythmic gymnastics was brought to Canada by Evelyn Koop (photo), a graduate of the Institute of Physical Education and specializing in rhythmics at Ernst Idla 's government sponsored school in Sweden.
WHAT IS RG? Modern rhythmic gymnastics began as a non-competitive sport in Eastern Europe at the beginning of this century and originally emerged as a criticism of the gymnastics of the time, which did not distinguish between gymnastics for men and for women. It may, however, be regarded as a movement specifically aimed at women's physical fitness, because it was developed on the basis of their biological and physiological characteristics. But over time, it has also had an impact on men's gymnastics by modernizing and reforming it. The sport consists of exercises of movement, which are arranged to music, combining dance and athletics with the aim of displaying an aesthetic harmony by control of body movement. It is developed from the natural movements of walking and running, coupled with grace, flexibility, endurance and self-expression. Rhythmic gymnastics is still primarily a European sport but has spread across the world. Rhythmic gymnastics is still primarily a European sport but has spread across the world. It remains a sport mainly for women.

Gymnastics, a Brief History
What it is.........
Gymnastics n.: systematic form of physical exercise designed for therapeutic, educational and competitive purposes. Therapeutic or Remedial Gymnastics is a series of selected exercises that help relieve physical discomfort or restore function to disabled people. Educational Gymnastics is a program that challenges students to master tactics involving strength, rhythm, balance, flexibility and agility. Competitive Gymnastics consist of prescribed sets of events for men and for women, each of which is scored separately in order to determine a winner.
The first gymnastics were the circuslike acrobatics performed in ancient Egypt.
In the 2nd century BC, men and women of Minoan Crete developed the art of bull leaping. In bull leaping the performer would run toward a charging bull, grab its horns, and, upon being tossed into the air, execute various midair stunts before landing on the bull's back and dismount with a flip. In Ancient Greece, three distinct programs of gymnastic exercise were developed: 1. To maintenance of good physical condition

Bob Mathias almost made it. Bruce Jenner might have, had he not been so overshadowed in Can't Stop the Music by the Village People. Ironically, for all the fame and adulation showered on these national heroesthe stars of the two-week Olympic Games only a handful succeed in parlaying their gold into more than an appearance on a box of Wheaties. It's not for lack of trying. Bart Conner, gymnastics gold medalist in Los Angeles in 1984, appeared in one film, Rad . It was about BMX bicycle racing, and his screen career went flat right after it. Now he appears daily doing his routines at Sea World along with his bride, another former Olympic darlingNadia Comaneci, the gold-winning pixie from 1976.

History from 1968 to the present ... Donna Strauss (when asked how it all began…) The Parkette program has come a long way since its humble beginnings in the early 1960's. Bill and Donna Strauss formed the group that was to become one of the most famous and recognized gymnastics programs in the USA Gymnastics history. It was with great pride that the Strausses selected the name Parkettes when identifying their new team. It was to honor the man that inspired them to pursue their dreams of building a gymnastics program in the Lehigh Valley. Little did they realize, as they started helping young people develop their athletic abilities, that in less than two decades they would achieve a ranking of #1 Team in the United States and be voted by their peers. . . coaches of the Year in 1983,1994 and 1998. The road to success was not an easy one. The sport of gymnastics has increased dramatically in popularity since the founding of the Parkettes. As gymnastics grew, so did the Strausses means to provide a quality program to their students. In their formative years, the Parkettes practiced in places such as a barn with no heat, a dimly lit basement of a church, the Strauss's own backyard (during the summer), and the second and third floors of Symphony Hall in Allentown's downtown area!
