All my friends of art, sports and specially artistic gymnastics worldwide  I wish a healthfully and successfully YEAR 2012!

I was very impressed of the high quality of international artistic gymnastics at the

Specially my admiration belongs the nonesuch uncomparable Oksana Chusovitina as a strong part of top class gymnast - inspite of her 36 years and her responsibility as mother of her son Alisher......!! A strong WOMAN!

20-May-2005: A big Event - and a big Honor for me...!

I was very passionately abot the big honor of the membership of the  "International GYMNASTICS HALL of FAME", together with three other world stars of artistic gymnastics.
This event means for me, that it cannot be without importance, what we have done in the former GDR, specially in artistic gymnastics.
The gymnasts from there - first the women, later the men -  were world top class and high performed...!
I have good remembrance, and I say now:
Many thanks to the board of IGHOF, for this greaz honor and for membership and the wonderful days in Oklahoma-City and Las Vegas...

-2005 in  Oklahoma-City

<< here I signed 
 the pommel horse - together with the Swiss Daniel Baumat from Swiss Timing, long-time partner of F.I.G., next all the other 43 autographs of all the other world stars of artistic gymnastics ...

... I was very impressed! 

02-May-2005:  A very special Journey to USA...

I was very happy and surprised, when I got an invitation to the yearly induction ceremony of the "International Gymnastics HALL of FAME" in Oklahoma-City at the End of May...! Together with the former gymnast Svetlana Boginskaya (Belarus), the men with the first triple somersault on floor ('87), Valeri Lukin and the mehrfach numerously Olympic Champion Akinory Nakayama (JAP) I shall be also a member of this panel of honor  next time...!

So I shall be the third German gymnast agreeing to a request this special honor, after  Maxi Gnauck (2000) and  Dr. Karin BŁttner-Janz (2003), my teammate  in the GDR silverteam in Munich 1972....      E. Z.
