Gymnastics – 1979 – USA & USSR Exhibition – Floor Exercise – Unknown USSR Female + Male Routines

It doesn’t happen often….but every “once in a blue moon” a video rolls up to be posted that encompasses participants that we have no idea who the featured competitors might be…..and in this 1979 USA and USSR gymnastics exhibition seen on ABC’s Wide World of Sports, we have one of those “once in a blue moon” videos. 

Now, we know that Jim McKay and Cathy Rigby are “behind the mikes” making the call on this video….but who the Soviet female and male  gymnasts are performing their floor exercise is still a mystery here at ImaSportsphile…..so, if any viewer of this video knows who the Russian athletes are!?!…..we would sure appreciate a comment helping us out with their identities.
