OKLAHOMA CITY -- Four international gymnasts are scheduled to be honored by the International Gymnastics Hall of Fame in Oklahoma City.

The hall announced Wednesday that Albert Azaryan of Armenia, Lyubov Burda of Russia, Gina Gogean of Romania, and Yuri Korolev of Russia will be honored during the 17th annual International Gymnastics Hall of Fame ceremony May 18 in Oklahoma City.

Azaryan and Gogean will be new hall members while Burda and Korolev were inducted previously but had not been able to attend the ceremony.

The IGHOF was founded in 1987 in Oceanside, Calif., and was moved to Oklahoma City in 1996.
