In 1955 Jack Beckner (then in the service in Europe) and Charlie Simms (who made a wh irlwind hitch-hiking tour through the aid of the armed forces) com-peted in the World Games held in Rome, Italy along with others in a mixed team. The first Official USA Men's team consisting of Larry Banner, Abie Grossfeld, Art Shurlock, Don Tonry and Armando Vega went to Moscow, Russia in 1958 and placed 7th with 539.85 (Russia 575.45, Japc;:m 572.60, Finland 549.15, Poland 541 .85, Y!Jgslavia 541.05 ).

For the 1966 World Games in Dortmund, Germany, the USA sent Kanati Allen, Steve Cohen, Arno Lascari, Fred Roesthlis-berger, Makoto Sakamoto, Tonry and Greg Weiss. Here we again took 6th place with a score of 550.40 (Japan 575.15, Russia 570.90, East Germany 561 .00, Czecho-slovakia 551 .20 and Poland 550.60).
