Uh... the government ''was'' Soviet gymnastics. The Soviets plowed millions into their sports programs, and into gymnastics in particular, as the Soviets were without question the undisputed masters of the sport. Their training centre at Ozero Krugloye - "Round Lake" was entirely government-funded, as were its feeder programs like CSKA. Elena Mukhina, paralysed weeks before the 1980 Games, expressly said that she was driven to her breaking point because of the pressure from the government for her to succeed - she was supposed to be the Soviet answer to Nadia, who had won all-around gold in Montreal. It's not a coincidence that the Eastern Bloc's team gold winning streak ended at the first Olympics after the fall of the Soviet Union.
