We have been publishing scientific articles about gymnastics for a dozen of years. 2020 will be marked by the Olympic Games in Tokyo (Japan). We expect excellent gymnastics and perhaps some new records even though gymnastics is normally not about records. We believe that many articles published here in the past have contributed to safer and better gymnastics.
The present issue brings seven articles from different lines of gymnastics, including general gymnastics, rhythmics, artistic gymnastics and acrobatics. Their topis range from sociology, psychology, motor abilities and motor control to physical education.
There authors are from Brazil, Greece, Canada, Germany, Slovenia and Spain.
Anton Gajdoš drafted another article related to the history of gymnastics, refreshing our awareness of Nikolay Adrianov, an excellent Russian gymnast who marked the era between 1970 and 1980 and later as a coach in Russia and Japan.
Special thanks to our reviewers whose diligent work has improved the quality of the published papers. The list of reviewers in 2019 is at the end of this issue.
Just to remind you, if you quote the Journal, its abbreviation on the Web of Knowledge is SCI GYMN J.
I wish you pleasant reading and a lot of inspiration for new research projects and articles,
Ivan Čuk, Editor-in-Chief
