    The 1958 World Artistic Gymnastics Championships seen here took place between 6-10 July 1958.

    "Takemoto winner of the Free Exercises" should read Takemoto winner of the Floor Exercises.

    "Takemoto and two other winners on stand" - the two other men on the podium are Takashi Ono of Japan and Yuri Titov of The Soviet Union.

    "Gymnast Albert Azarlan of the USSR. CU. Gymnasts" - the other gymnasts are Aihara Nobuyuki and Yuri Titov.

    "Gymnast on horse vault" - actually it's the Pommel Horse. The gymnast is Boris Shakhlin.

    "Larissa Latynina" should read Larisa Latynina, (3 changes needed inc tags).
