Olga Korbut of Team USSR was a spectacular gymnast that performed an unbelievable routine in the 1972 Olympics.
This is Olga Korbut. She was 17 years old when she competed in the 1972 Olympics.
Before she competed, gymnasts were generally older and the emphasis of the sport was on elegance, rather than acrobatics. After her Olympic debut the sport of gymnastics changed to focus more on acrobatics along with a surge of inspired young girls wanting to compete.
The "Korbut flip" is a move named after Olga herself.
The manuever on the uneven bars is when a gymnast, from a stand on the high bar, performs a back flip on the lower bar and then regrasps the high bar.
Here is Olga performing her routine which includes the "Korbut Flip" at the 1972 Olympics.
It's simply amazing.
