Subject: Need Trivia Questions:  Nationals

Hey Gymn!

Since we just received results from both Russian and US Nationals, I thought
now might be an interesting time for a Nationals trivia quiz!

Send me your questions (with answers included) via *private e-mail* (not to
the list) by Tuesday at 5pm EST.  Remember, this is an international list, so
questions are not at all limited to US Nationals.  I know everyone would
enjoy some questions about National competitions around the world.

C'mon everybody, even new subscribers, even if you don't think they're good
enough or original enough (yes, this means YOU!), send 'em in!

Brian Meeker was not the alternate to the US men's team in '84.

Or how about a double twisting front, punch back?

Someone asked about USAG's forum on Delphi.  I used to subscribe to Delphi,
and followed this forum for a short time when it was just starting out.  They
posted articles about gymnastics, "latest news" (which at the time wasn't
updated very often), had occasional conferences online and an e-mail message
board where people exchanged ideas.  At the time, only a few people seemed to
subscribe or contribute, and it wasn't very active. But I'm sure there are
more people involved now, and more information available.  And it is a way to
write to USAG directly.  I think the address was  (maybe it's
changed to  ?).  You can probably write to them at the
address, but not really participate on the forum unless you have Delphi.  The
problem with Delphi is it costs per minute if you log on anytime during the

Here's some more brief news about the gymnastics competition:

Group B:  TPE, SLO, FIN, SWE, GBR, Mixed Team of Albania, Malaysia & AUS

Was there a Group A?  I don't know.

Some scores:

Kan: PB (9.4), PH (9.675), R (9.15), V (9.15)
Shostak: PB (9.25), PH (9.05), R (9.40), V (9.15)
Scherbo: FX (9.30), PH (8.90), R (8.55), V (9.50)
Tanaka: FX (9.40), V (9.60)

The groupings for the women were:

Group A: CHN, HUN, BLR, Mixed (GER and Albania)
Group B: CZE, RUS, Mixed 1 (SLO & GBR), Mixed 2 (MEX, HOL, SVK)

If you can get through (and have the patience once you're there), check out
the Universiade's web page at

There is not much information there at the moment, but if you follow the
"Today's Topics" link, you'll eventually find some average GIFs from the
men's competition.

Subject: Articles

The last 2 days there has been gymnastics articles in the Cincinnati
Enquirer. Yesterdays wasn't really worth posting but since today there
is another one I guess I'll write about both.

1st Article
Mike Morgan
Mike Morgan is going to represent the US Junior national team next week
in the Japanese Jr. International Invitational. He leaves today
That may sound like a brief summary but we came dangerously close to
copy it word for word :) It really was about that short!
Here is todays about Amanda Borden (On the front page of the sports

Amanda Borden
Amanda broke her toe and Monday she will find out if it will keep her
out of the Worlds. She broke the 2nd toe on her left foot at the
Nationals last week which caused her to drop out of the all-around
comp. Mary Lee Tracy says that the xrays show a shadow that may be a
break. It will be re examined Monday. Mary Lee says "We are going to
listen to Amanda's body. If her body says she needs to stop for a
while, we'll stop."
She petitioned herself to be considered for the World team and the
trials will be Sept 8-9 in Austin, Texas (does anyone know if they are
going to air these?)
Amanda definatly wants to go but the Olympics are a bigger deal to her
and she doesn't want to ruin that. If she misses the Worlds it
shouldn't effect her chances of making the Olympic team because she has
proven herself to be one of the best in the country.

Mary Lee Tracy
Mary Lee Tracy has been chosen to be the Best Gymnastics coach for the
second straight year. Mary Lee who was suprised last year when she won
was even more suprised this year because she was going against "over
famed coaches"  Bela Karolyi and Steve Nunno. (this article wa an inset
of the Amanda article)

HI Gymners!
I am in search of anyone willing to loan out a copy of their EF that was
televised last weekend.  My 8 month old nephew has recently discovered
the buttons on the VCR and my tape has the hapless victim.
I will be more than happy to cover all postage costs for your efforts.l

Thanks in advance.

Subject: re : new moves, old moves

I think I remember reading somewhere that Roza Galieva did
consecutive Tkatchevs on AB.  Whatever, she certainly did something
out of a Tkatchev, possibly an immediate giant or double flyaway.

How about these moves on AB :

* full twisting layout Pak
* one arm giant performed by a female gymnast.

Just my thoughts,
