Background: The country's strongest athletes have contested in Leningrad the USSR cup in sport gymnastics for women. The fate of the cup was rather decided unexpectedly, it could be even said, dramatically. The first place was shared by two gymnasts. The winner at the previous Leningrad contest, Tamara Manina, received a higher appraisal. Poling Astakhova from the town of Staling ???ed the same number of points.
But the referees found a way out of this situation. Tamara Manina, who won for the second time was presented with the cup for good. While Patina Astakhova received a similar cup but it will be one that can be challenged for.
