Old International gymnasts

Hi all
I’m feeling nostalgic and have no idea where my old IG issues are so I wanted to buy some issues with World/Olympic coverage but their website has NO info about each month’s issue(WTF). Does anyone have any info on

  1. a website that has all the covers of IG from 1993 on
  2. the months that contain their coverage of worlds/olympics after 1993

Any help would be greatly appreciated

  1. Not a website but I have their 50th anniversary poster which is a college of front covers. I could take a photo of that to give you 1993-2006 images. If you can wait until Xmas then I could probably take photos of issues from 2006 onwards. I think I’d quite enjoy immersing myself in gym nostalgia.
  2. I could probably compile this list for 1995 onwards next week (I’m away this weekend).

I miss IG. I can’t remember the exact timeline of them going quarterly and the pandemic. Would have been interesting to see what they filled issues with when all the competitions were cancelled if they’d kept the ten issues per year. I’ve been a subscriber since 1999 but I’ve never been sent a quarterly issue. Obviously there were more important things going on in 2020/1 so chasing it wasn’t high on my priority list. I sent them a couple of e-mails after the Olympics but never heard back.

Here’s the lower third of the poster (faded from the sun). Hopefully this is good enough resolution to make out who is on the covers.

Thanks for the e-mail info. The last issue on the old schedule was this one:


Extra poignant given what happened to that season.

I was never sent a quarterly issue either.
