    Wow, the switching between French, Russian, English and who knows what else is kind of throwing me off. Thank goodness for the CC in English.

                  I love Sveta. People mistook her outspokeness for being a diva.

                            Great gymnast. Too bad she has such a nasty attitude. Her comments about Simone were classless and reeked of bitterness and jealousy.

                                  Svetlana, I loved watching you in your sad 2000 Olympics. I loved your form & long, lean extension.
                                  This was a wonderful video

                                      Who’s Carly Paterson??? I was a Khorkina fan for many years. Obviously I wanted her to get that gold.

                                        Khorkina ..... one of my all time favorites. Her skills are elegant. And she looks so fragile.

                                          Both Svetlana's I absolutely adored (Khorkina and Boginskaya). The 2000 Olympics fiasco was horrible and today I'm still pissed no one was held accountable.

                                            Always loved her. Her definition of each apparatus was intriguing... floor - feminine elegance. Don’t see much of that these days, except for the Dutch, and the odd other one.

                                                She is so conceited. Russia is no longer the power house in gymnastics. USA ❤️, Romania, and other countries are now the dominant forces. Get off your high horse and get ready to watch other talented young ladies which will not be from Russia. 2020 here we come! ❤️🇺🇸❤️

                                                      Such a legend!! She looked a lot taller than 5ft4.5" b/c she was so thin and had long, slim legs. Her body was better suited for rhythmic gymnastics so she gets major points for pursuing artistic instead b/c it was so much harder.

                                                                        • cj222100

Plus her longevity in the sport, which was unusual at the time. Can't help but wonder what would have been had that vault been set correctly. I believe she even managed to land her second vault.
