video – Soviet Gymnastics 50s-80s

Another great montage of “old gymnastics” by kevin123verstappen.

My montage about soviet gymnastics from the late 50’s untill the early 80’s.

Click PLAY or watch it on YouTube.

Some great moments. I love the momentary horizontal planche by Shaposhnikova.

UPDATE: Gymblog linked to a video of Chinese gymnastics circa 1965, long before they entered international competition.
