Turners: For more than 150 years, they have formed Turnvereinen, or “gymnastic unions”, which are not only athletic, but also political, “nationalistic gymnastic” organizations in Europe. The German movement was started by Turnvater Jahn and was instrumental in German unification after 1848. The American Turners were instrumental in the popularization of gymnastics in America.
