This is amazing! The Rio games are Oksana Chusovitina’s 7th Olympics, and the 41-year-old gymnast is proving that age really means nothing when it comes to sports. Click inside to watch her in action!
At 41 years old, you would think that Oksana Chusovitina would be totally over the strenuous physical training required to qualify for the Olympics. However, the Uzbekistani mother-of-one isn’t tired of it at all, and her strength as a gymnast really showed during the vault competition.
In a video from her performance, Oksana nails not one but two incredible vaults for a combined score of 14.999. She qualified in fifth place, while American sweetheart Gabby Douglas, just 20 years 0ld, was eliminated. Click HERE to watch Oksana vault!
Unfortunately Oksana did not do as well on the balance beam, as she qualified in only the 50th spot. One thing she definitely has to look forward to are the 8 gold medals she’s received over the years, though swimmer Michael Phelps, 31, still holds the record at 19. Maybe one day she can surpass him!
