This remarkable woman from Uzbekistan is a gymnast, mother and inspiration to the gymnastic community. At the recent test event running up to the Olympics in Rio later this year, she qualified for her 7th (!) Olympic games.
In some sports it might not be considered a great accomplishment for an athlete to return to the Olympics. In women’s artistic gymnastics (WAG), where even a return to back-to-back Olympics Women’s all around is a great feat, this is a very big thing. Especially with today’s gymnastics that require high skills and include high impact landings that take a lot out of the gymnasts body.
This remarkable lady is an inspiration to gymnasts all around the world.
