�Im Turnen ge�bt, im Kreise beliebt,

(Practiced in gymnastics, loved by his friends,
and happy when drinking beer, that is the gymnast�s virtue.)

Friedrich Ludwig Jahn (1778-1852), or �Turnvater Jahn�, is credited with responsibility for the rebirth of gymnastics in Germany during the early 19th century, and for development of gymnastics equipment such as the parallel bars and pommel horse. The �4F� symbol above the central portrait, standing for �Frisch, Fromm, Fr�hlich, Frei� (Fresh, Pious, Happy, Free), represents the movement he began.
