    Background: INTRODUCTION: Young athletes from throughout the Soviet Union showed their skills at the National Youth Gymnastics Championship in Moscow recently. The competitors, aged from 10 to 18, were from training schools, and this was their chance to impress Olympic selectors.

    SYNOPSIS: The youngsters who converged on the Olympic Sporting Ground in Moscow, were labelled "Olympic hopes" as a select handful will one day join the Soviet Olympic gymnastics team. Among the young stars was 13-year-old student Regina Starodub, from Kishinev. She excelled on the bars, scoring a total of 9.65 points in her compulsory events. She has been training since she was seven-years-old and has won national and international prizes.

    The flow exercises were popular with the crowd in the 20,000-capacity arena. Twelve-year-old student, Yelena Shushanova, from Leningrad, was the strongest among her fellow contestants. She won a bronze in the team event and a silver medal on the bars.
