    Background: SCOPE: This coverage is of Captain Micki King, Olympic Gold Medal winner and now a member of the Air Force Academy staff helping to establish physical standards for the first women applicants of the Academy.

    The Air Force Academy will enrol its first women cadets next summer. The program requires that the cadets be physically as well as mentally fit.

    Captain Micki King, Olympic Gold Medal winner and now a member of the Academy staff is helping to establish physical standards for the first women applicants.

    V. O. MICKI KING
    Physical fitness is an important quality in all young women who intend to come to the Air Force Academy.

    SYNC MICKI KING
    ...And before they come, they will be tested in the Physical Aptitude Exam.

    V. O. MICKT KING
    We'll measure cardio-vascular endurance, strength, agility, and coordination.

    The type of young women we're looking for is a woman who's been active. She doen't need to be a high school athlete.

    The women of today are looking for the challenge, and I think they're going to live up to the challenge.
