It would be most unfortunate indeed if the eastern and western gymnastics communities would split and competition between the two sides would be discontinued. It is my hope that differences will be resolved and the sport of gymnastics on a worldwide basis will continue to flourish.
Gymnastics Federation For the first time, Americans have joined the ranks of the world's finest gymnasts.
This handbook is a must for all devotees. All the favorite gymnasts are here: Ohio State University, in Columbus, was the sight of the Championships, which had previously been held in Dayton. Mike Wilsonmen 's coach, and Mr. Larry Cook, women 's coach, at OSU, did an excellent job of organizing and hosting the competition. A total of 44 gymnasts qualified for the three day meet on April 24, 25 and Of the qualifiers, 40 participated in the Championships. At the conclusion of the first day of competition, compulsories, there were several surprises, including a rather high percentage of newcomers in the top 14 finishers.
With the Olympic Boycott, perhaps creating a loss of motivation, drive and enthusiasm among the top gymnasts, the drive for higher compulsory scores was lacking. Consistency and experience surfaced once again, as members of the Fort Worth World Championship Team secured the first four places during the compulsories.
Many outstanding improvements were made over last year by such gymnasts as Casey Edwards, 4th, and Wallace Miller, 6th with a score of There were other new faces in the top 14 worthy of mention, including Carlos Spivey, 11th place tie of Although some of the veteran gymnasts including Peter Kormann, Mike Wilson and Tom Beach, encountered only a few problems, they finished surprisingly, in low places. From a technical view point, I could not observe any significant technical improvement in compulsory exercises as a whole, even though there were many solid routines shown in the competition.
One of the bright spots was the "Peach Baskets" being executed well in the Parallel Bar routines by several gymnasts and the improvement in the technical execution of the Handspring vault which was apparent in the height and distance after flight.
Many outstanding performances were given on the second day, Optionals.

A very explosive Casey Edwards had a few problems in floor exercise and pommel horse routines but his aggressive performance in the other 4 events, helped to keep his head from the previous day to finish sixth all around. The selection of the National Team at the conclusion of the two days of competition, showed that 7 of the 15 members are newcomers this year.
All of the new members are still in school, which gives a solid foundation for the National Program. By comparison statistically, the results of this year versus last year are much more encouraging, even though it may not have shown during the performances.
