The first German gymnastic festival (Turnfest) was held in Coburg in 1860. The festival and marked the beginning of international competition, as the growing family of Turners outside of Germany were invited to participate. Americans had been introduced to gymnastics by followers of Jahn in the late 1820s, but not until 1848, whenlarge numbersof Germans immigrated, did transplantTurnvereinmembers organize clubs and establish a national union of Turner societies. (A similar movement, theSokol, originated and spread in Bohemia and was also transported to the United States.) By 1861 American Turners and Turners from Germanic regions bordering Prussia attended the secondTurnfestin Berlin. By the time of the first modern Olympics in Athens in 1896, eightTurnfests had taken place in Germany with the participation of a growing number of countries.In 1881 theFédération Internationale Gymnastique (FIG) was founded to supervise international competition.
