I recall reading in Gym Insider that Woynerowski will be competing NCAA for a
New England school next year, but I don't know which one.

> If anyone has any news on Gurova since
1988 PLEASE post it!  She's my all time favourite gymnast, and I've
heard nothing about her since a post Seoul Soviet tour......

To my knowledge Yelena Gurova is a typist in Moscow.

and at this moment she is not involved in gymnastics whatsoever.

Tickets for the trials went on sale Saturday morning.  The event will be held at
the Frank Erwin Center adjacent to the University of Texas campus on Sept. 8 and
9.  The sessions will be at 1:00 pm (men) and 7:00 pm (women).  Ticket package
prices range from $32 to $88 and are available from UT Ticket Master at

I called Saturday morning and got seats dead center, fifth row.  I'm really
excited.  If any of you gymners make it to the competition be sure to say hello.

Any questions about Austin?  Where to stay?  What to do?  Email me.

I believe Anne W. has signed a letter of intent to compete for U. of New
Hampshire next season.  (According to that infamous "list")

Does anyone know the schedule of the Prairie States Games gymnastics being
held at Edwardsville, IL July 21-23?  Will there be artistic only or also

Does anyone know if the U.S. Classic will be televised, even if on one of the
smaller networks (PRIME, Sportschannel, etc)?

Subject: Gurova

     I know that after Gurova retired from artistic gymnastics she became a
sports acrobat for a while. She was definitely competing in sports acrobatics
in 1989, because I remember seeing some small articles and results in Sovetsky
Sport that year. But I don't know how long she stayed in that sport or why she
quit (age? injury?).

On Wednesday, July 19, NBC's "Today" show will have a preview of the Atlanta
Olympics and, from the promos showing Miller and Dawes, I would guess that
includes gymnastics.  The show airs at 7 am central.

I was channel surfing today and ran across a "Mr. Roger's Neighborhood"
featuring a 15-year-old Chainey (before the hunky arms) doing p-bars, pommel
horse, high bar, and floor (he said he sometimes performed floor to music and
had Mr. Rogers put some on!).  Didn't he just recently make another
appearence on the show?

For any of the Aussies interested in this, NBC "Today" is on channel 7
from about 1am to 3am, and a couple of days later, so watch for this
Thursday or Friday morning.


P.S. Thanks to Chantel & Beth for the Gurova tid-bits.  You made my day!

Subject: Gurova et al.

It is really odd that someone brought up Elena Gurova. The other day I
reading through some old IG's (1984 and 1985) and there was a few articles
in which she was meantioned. One, for example, atlked about age limits being
inforced at international competitions. Well, to make a long story short,
it made me realize how many gymnasts who peak early (child prodigy)
tend to fade off fast. Gurova is an excellent example. At 12, she did what
the current world champ (Yurchenko_ couldn't do. She had it all, and looked
like a bright star, but turned out to be a shooting one. It is kind of sad,
but others have done the same. I decided to look up some stats on the
junior europeans, and it seems that execept for Szabo (1980 and 1982) and
Boginskya (1986), early success seems to mean a short career at the top.
It is interesting that many gymnasts who did not do well at meets at
early ages, seem to have had longer careers. Case in point, Sushonova (15th,
I think at the 1984 Euro Juniors, and she had a great career, whereas
Irina Barakanisova (sp) who was the 1984 champ, faded fast.

I am sure that there are exceptions, but it is an interesting point to

I have met Elena Gurova in 1988, in NYC, after the exhibition in Meadowlands.
She appeared to be a very sweet girl. I think her coach is Kochetkova's coach.
