I can’t help but laugh.  Gymnastics in 1936 was pretty tame – Nothing like what we have today.  Watching this video, the first phrase that popped into my mind was, “You’ve come a long way, baby!”  I wonder how they scored gymnastics back then.

I especially got a chuckle out of the vault events.  Which event did you think was the funniest?  Share it with a friend!



Here’s a book for kids that will show them some gymnastics history.
