There’s an unspoken mystery surrounding Russian Gymnasts and how they perform the way they do – fierce, flawless, unstoppable. Russia’s very own, Svetlana Khorkina is one of the all-time greats the sport of gymnastics has ever seen. Unusually taller than most gymnast, her height never stopped her from performing with elegance, grace and excellence. With 8 skills named after her in the code of points and deservingly earning the nickname “Queen of the bars”, she has won 7 Olympic medals and 20 World Championship medals. Without a doubt Khorkina is one of the most successful gymnasts of all time.
