Gymnast of the Week – Khorkina

2004 Olympics

Check out Gymnastike’s ‘Gymnast of the Week’. Liz writes about the queen of gymnastics Svetlana Khorkina.

Svetlana, who was unusually tall for the sport, had to often change skills in order to compete successfully. As a result, she has an unprecedented 8 skills named after her, including one on at least every event; her 8 skills are more than any other gymnast, male or female!
