    Background: CHELYABINSK, URALS, USSR

    Top Soviet gymnasts took part in the last day of their national championships on September 19, competing in the separate events at apparatus, and floor exercises. Held at Chelyabinsk, a city in the Ural mountains, the championships produced some new names for future international competition. Among them was Rodion Gabitov from a local club, who gave a very impressive display in floor exercises. Fifteen year old Dima Bilozerchev showed that he is a future champion. Being under age, a special exemption was required from the Soviet gymnastics federation to allow him to take part in the championships. The current world champion Yuri Korolyov won two gold medals, one for the floor exercises -- the second for bars. Another dual gold winner was Bogdan Makutz, seen here on the bars. Makutz won this year's Moscow News prize and in the Chelyabinsk championships scored the maximum possible on the high bar.
