Svetlana Khorkina (and Yelena Produnova) on Rosie O'Donnell

Oh myyyy, finally we get to see this gem! I would be lying if I told you that I’ve been waiting for for this 12 years. It’s only 8, because that’s when I got into gymnastics.


Elena Produnova, the first woman (and only one so far) I’ve seen landing the Roche vault on her feet. Choe Jong Sil, of North Korea, had attempted it at the 1980 Olympics.

(I had posted this vault before, but this video is of much better quality).

Elena Produnova, la primera mujer (y la única de momento) a la que le he visto aterrizar el salto roche con los pies. Choe Jong Sil, de Corea del Norte, lo había intentado en los Juegos Olímpicos de 1980.

(Ya había hablado de este salto antes, pero este vídeo es de mucha mejor calidad).
