Olga Korbut is Part Cat?

Of course I've heard of Olga Korbut but I've somehow never seen this before. Stunning!

Stunning indeed!

Her gold medal winning performance in the floor exercise from the same year is also absolutely captivating. I watched it on tv all those years ago and, as I wrote elsewhere:

"Watching that performance again, and hearing the delight of the commentator as she performs her routine, brought it all back to me - she was a Russian, we were in the middle of the Cold War and she was representing the enemy, but everyone was rooting for her. She didn't disappoint."
