Olga Korbut (1955 - present), won four gold medals and two silver medals for the USSR in the Summer Olympics of 1972 and 1976 with her charming, innovative and technically brilliant gymnastics. She caught the world's imagination and made gymnastics popular all over the world. Olga now lives in the US.
