    Background: Gymnastics ... the Soviet Union and East Germany took the medal honours at the World Championships in Toronto, Canada. The Soviets won both the means and women overall championships. And in Individual event finals, the Soviet Union and East Germany won, or shared, nine of the ten gold medals.

    SYNOPSIS: The most successful campaigner for East Germany was Roland Brueckner. He took the gold medal in this event, the floor exercises. Then he went on to win the pommel horse and vault finals. His extraordinary run of victories made up for his defeat in the overall championship which he was favoured to win.

    And this is the man that beat Brueckner in that overall event ... Bogdan Makuz of the Soviet Union. Makuz made an impact on the individual events as well. He shared the gold on both the horizontal and parallel bars.

    The two-man Chinese team, making its debut at a world Championships, claimed stunning success. Yuejiv Li, the man you're watching now, won the gold on the parallel bars. Teammate Yubin Huang shared first place for his performance with the rings.

    Maxi Gnauck spearheaded the East German assault on the women individual titles. Here she's on her way to victory in the floor exercise. But the petite 16-year-old, she's not even five feet high, also took and gold on the isometric bars.

    But despite the efforts of the East German girls, the Soviet presence was unstoppable. Their beam specialists took both gold and silver medals. Winner of the event ... Elena Naymoushina.

    Another Soviet start .. Stella Zakharova, the new world vault champion.

    The championships brought together for the first time this year gymnasts who had, and hadn't, boycotted the Moscow Olympics.
