Oksana Chusovitina

I was so pleased to see Oksana Chusovitina win a silver medal on vault. NBC has an interview with her that talks about her son (she's one of a very few gymnasts to continue competing after giving birth), her long gymnastics career (she was on the Unified Team in 1992- remember SvetlanaBoginskaya?), and her citizenship in Germany (her family moved to Germany for her son's cancer treatment) but her feelings about Uzbekistan (she was born in Bukhara).
