What's This?

Pick any sport and the chances are that top athletes today would beat their 70’s counterparts by a long shot. I mean, you can see the world records get broken all the time. However, gymnastics is not one of those sports, because no one today is brave enough to attempt what Olga Korbut nailed on uneven bars at the 1972 Olympics.

“Sparrow from Minsk” performed a routine that was subsequently deemed too dangerous and banned from the sport. Ironically though, her infamous routine wasn’t enough to earn her gold as the score of 9,800 was only enough for silver medal.
