Does anyone here like Gymnastics?

Hey guys, I just finished watching an old tape of the gymnastics at the Atlanta Olympics and wondered if there were any other fans out there?
I'm an especially big fan of:

Mo Huilan (all-time fave!! )
Dominique Dawes
Liu Xuan
Svetlana Khorkina
Yang Yun
Bo Yang
Betty Okino
Svetlana Boguinskaia
Gina Gogean

Anyone else a fan of gymnastics, who do you guys like?

Muguruza Kerber
Safarova Kvitova
JJ Venus Kanepi

Hi
I was gonna post a thread like this too but you did before me
I'm a huge fan of gymnastics too, and here are my favorites:
Andreea Raducan
Elena Zamolodchikova
Verona Van De Leur
And all the other Chinese gymnasts, especially Yang Yun & Zhang Nan



So this is love, Mmmmmm
So this is love
So this is what makes life divine
I'm all aglow, Mmmmmm
And now I know
The key to all heaven is mine
My heart has wings, Mmmmmm
And I can fly
I'll touch every star in the sky
So this is the miracle that I've been dreaming of
Mmmmmm
Mmmmmm
So this is love

Khorkina is the best and Van de Leur is the dutch pride

Good luck Dinara, Justine and Kim

Well the last I heard (and this is quite a long time ago) was that she was totally estranged from her parents and tried to make a comeback for Sydney 2000 but got injured and was nowhere near good enough.
Its a real shame about Mo because she was so talented, but I cant help think 'burn-out'. She was an Olympic gold medallist at 14 and had already been to a world champs at 13. After 1996 I think she had loads of problems, both in gymnastics and in her private life

Dominique Dawes was my absolute favorite...
after the '96 Olympics, RIGHT IN MY OWN CITY!!!!!!!!!, I kinda dropped gymnastics for tennis.

But I've always admired Khorkina's grace.

Yay, great to see so many Dominique Dawes fans!! She is certainly my second fave ever (behind Mo )
I always felt with Dom that she was one of the most talented gymnasts ever but just never fulfilled it. I think her problem was in her head. At worlds 93 and 94 and Atlanta Olympics she had the chance for gold but blew it with mistakes (usually on vault! ) and always just finished out the medals

Maybe it's just me...but do any of you find any resemblance between Dominique Moceanu and Andreea Raducan?
