The Greatest Gymnastics Performance Ever [VIDEO]
Huge ups to Gabby Douglas for bringing home the gold medal in individual performance for the USA last night and for being the first African American to do so. But for as great as her performance was, I still don’t know if it beats this performance from a Russian gymnast way back in 1972.
It’s absolutely insane that a human being can do this. The gymnast is Olga Korbut and the backflip she does off the top bar is named after her. Standing on bars has since been banned from gymnastic competitions, which makes no sense, since it’s the sweetest gymnastics move I’ve ever seen.
