  • Description

    SOME OF THE WORLD'S TOP GYMNASTS ARE IN VIENNA FOR THE FOURTH INTERNATIONAL GYMNASTICS DEMONSTRATION, OR GYMNAESTRADA, WHICH OPENED YESTERDAY (TUESDAY). ATHLETES FROM TWENTY EIGHT NATIONS ARE TAKING PART IN THE VARIOUS EVENTS, AND ANOTHER TWELVE COUNTRIES HAVE OFFICIAL OBSERVERS WATCHING THE EVENTS.

    THE 'FESTIVAL OF GYMNASTICS' WILL CONTINUE UNTIL MONDAY. AS WELL AS FULL PROGRAMMES OF DEMONSTRATIONS, GYMNASTS WILL ALSO ATTEND SYMPOSIUMS WHERE TRAINING, PHYSICAL FITNESS, GYMNASTICS AND OTHER SUBJECTS WILL BE DISCUSSED AND LECTURES WILL BE GIVEN.

    THE PROGRAMME OF DEMONSTRATIONS IS SO LARGE THAT FIVE VENUES HAVE BEEN SET ASIDE FOR THE GYMNAESTRADA.

    THE GYMNAESTRADA WAS ORGANISED BY THE AUSTRIAN GYMNASTIC ASSOCIATION FOR THE INTERNATIONAL GYMNASTIC ASSOCIATION. THE FIRST INTERNATIONAL GYMNAESTRADA WAS HELD IN ROTTERDAM, HOLLAND, IN 1953. THE BASIC IDEA OF THE GYMNAESTRADA IS NOT COMPETITION, BUT A DEMONSTRATION OF THE STANDARDS OF PHYSICAL TRAINING IN VARIOUS COUNTRIES. THEY ARE HELD EVERY FOUR YEARS.
