Girls on the Beam

May 08, 1960

The four young ladies performing the ballet on the wooden beam are some of the gymnasts who were at West Point last week competing for positions on the U.S. Olympic team (see page 80). During three strenuous days, 33 girls vaulted, tumbled, balanced and swung through a series of drills which showed off to good advantage their agility, their poise and, happily, their pretty figures. When it was over, 10 of them (including the Misses Richardson, Osborn and Scanlon) won places on a training squad. In August six lucky ones will go to Rome.
