    Default Gymnastics - Uneven Bars developments 1950 - 2005

    The Uneven Bars Developments (50s-2010s) - YouTube

    (trouble embedding)

    I had never seen bar routines from the 50's - I burst out laughing! I thnk my favorite era is teh late 70's thru the 80's when the bars were still fairly close together and they could catch the lower bar with their hips and do back cirlce cathces. It made for an elegant transition from high to low and back again. Todays version is much closer to the mens high bar.

    I loved the one at around 1.15 with the big blonde hairdo. It made me wonder where she kept her pearl handled revolver in that outfit

    The ones from the 50 - 70s where they catch the bar with their hips to spin looks like it would hurt.

    1. In the 1950's the routines looked like they were done in slow motion!
    2. I wonder if all that banging the bars with the hips/abdomen didn't cause any (internal) damage.
    3. The bars are much farther apart than in the beginning!

    Many Many Many years ago I took gymnastics - I had bruises all over my hips and upper thighs from the bars.

    I wonder why they moved them so far apart? I didn't follow closely for a number of years so never heard the reasoning - off to google!

    A lot of the old routines seem so much more varied and interesting to watch. They seem to spend so much more time on the high bar now.

    I know - I spent about an hour looking up oldies. Olga Korbut was so flexible her routines were amazing - and I don't recall her last name but a Russian named Ludmila (maybe she is in your video) popped up - I recall her vaguely - but remembered her face.

    The ones from the 70s were my fave too, as Tati says the older routines are a lot more interesting than the modern ones.
