In 1933, at the 5th Regional Sokol Meeting in Ljubljana which was at the time a place in the Yugoslav Kingdom,

kerlj carried out the first measurements of 189 gymnasts, active competitors; in 2000, at the World Cup Meeting in

Ljubljana, ^uk and associates carried out measurements of 40 top gymnasts. Our analysis of identical variables has

shown that there is no difference in body height and weight of the gymnasts in 1933 and those in 2000, while there is a

significant difference in the width of their shoulders and pelvis, the contemporary athletes being wider in their shoulders

and narrower in their pelvis. The differences can be assigned to the new requirements in contemporary gymnastics as exercises

are becoming more difficult, including more rotation around the vertical and horizontal axis.
