Subject: Gymnast Bios

I was at the Library of Congress doing research, and while waiting for books
decided to search for biographys on gymnasts.  Aside from the ones that have
already been mentioned, here's what I found:

Cathy Rigby, by Linda J. Altman (1975)

Joan Moore Rice, by Linda J. Altman (1975)

Eastern superstar, Olga Korbut, by Gwen Evans (1976)

Gymnastics happy superstar, Olga Korbut, by Paula Taylor (1977)

Nadia Comaneci by Gloria Kiklowitz (1977) (also books published this year
with the same title by Thomas Braun, Constance Van Brunt, and S. H. Burchard)

Nadia of Romania, by Marion Connock (1977)

Winners in gymnastics, by Frank Litsky (1978).  Bio sketches of Nadia, Olga,
Nelli Kim, Andrianov, Tsukahara, Conner, more.

Kurt Thomas, international winner, by Nancy Robison (1980)

Gymnastics, the new era, by Mort Engel (1980)  Has different bios of gymnasts
of the time, such as Nelli Kim, Shaposhnikova, etc.

The young gymnasts, by Lyn Moran (1979).  Various gymnast of the era.

Soviet gymnastics stars, by Vladimir Golubev (1979) (translated)

Lyudmila Turishcheva, by Vladimir Golubev (1979) (translated)

Perfect balance:  the story of an elite gymnast, by Lynn Haney (1979).
Follows the career of a young American gymnast as she prepares for the 1980
Olympics to be held in Moscow.  Includes profiles of several other prominent

Carol Johnston, the one-armed gymnast (!), by Pete Donovan (1978). A bio of
the Canadian gymnast who won All-American honors in 1978 despite her physical

Mary Lou Retton, 3 different books of this title by George Sullivan, Rosemary
Washington, and Hal Lundgren (1985)

Mary Lou Retton and the new gymnasts, by Herma Silverstein (1985).  Bios of
new Olympic gymnasts, with an emphasis on Mary Lou Retton.

The golden girls of Bulgaria, by Neshka Robeva (1985).  No details on who is
covered in this one.

Li Ning, by Keng-Kuei Feng (1987).  This *may* be in Chinese.

Olga Korbut, by Wayne R. Coffey (1992)

There were others, but they were untranslated.  Except for the books on
Turishcheva, Li Ning, and the Bulgarians, I have seen all of these books at
various libraries, and I would suggest going that route to obtain them
instead of trying the local bookstore, since most are probably out of print.
With few exceptions, all were cataloged as juvenile literature, so I would
try the childrens/young adults sections initially.

Subject: New Coach

My daughter's gym, SPLITZ, located just outside of Sacramento in Loomis
California, recently hired a new coach to assist coaching the
level 8-elite program.  Head coach Sam Shaw  hired "Hike ?".  Hike
is his 1st name and I don't yet have his last name.  Hike was coaching
the Armenian National Team in a competition here in the US recently.
The team left and he "stayed".  I was wondering if anyone had "any"
information on Hike.  Does he have any reputation at all?  Any notable
accomplishments?  I was told that he once coached one of the world's
best female gymnasts (Russian?).  Does anyone know who that was?

Anyway, Hike is here.  He speaks no English yet but is still an
effective communicator through hand signals and hands-on coaching.
