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 :hearts: (all-time fave!! :) :kiss: )
Dominique Dawes :worship:
Liu Xuan :D
Svetlana Khorkina
Yang Yun :)
Bo Yang
Betty Okino
Svetlana Boguinskaia :D
Gina Gogean

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

What ever happened to that American girl, Dominique Moceanu? I heard somewhere that she got into some trouble.

Anyone know anything?

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 :eek: 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 :sad:

I really liked Us team is Olympic 1996, Shannon Miller, Dominique Moceanu, Kerry Strug and especially Daminique Dawes my all - time favourite.

I really liked romanian team too. Lavigna Milosovici was my " favourite " :) :D :) :D ;) !!!!!

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 :angel: 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! :mad: ) 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?
