1979 Schwebebalken Finale

I’m not sure what exactly this competition is or who are all the gymnasts and I don’t know German, but it’s interesting nonetheless:

Oooohhhhhhhhh, thank you!

Can I just say that it still bugs me 40+ years later that Vera Cerna won with that routine with its wobble, bent leg bhs and just a layout dismount (oh and I didn’t like the back tuck, back tuck series) … and the judges gave it 9.9!

For future reference, wm is world championships (Weltmeisterschaft) and schwebebalken is balance beam. Euros would be em. Maybe there’s other vids out there

Much appreciated. It looks like that YT channel has been uploading some old competitions.
