During the 1972 Munich Olympics a teenage girl weighing only 85lbs captivated television viewers around the world with her acrobatic grace and winning smile as she collected three gold medals and one silver for the Soviet Union. This account of Olga Korbut's life tells how the Soviet authorities at first penalized her for her revolutionary interpretations of traditional gymnastic movements, until her talent could be held back no longer; how in 1978 she married the singer in a Soviet rock band and began to teach; and how in 1986 she was exposed to the harmful effects of the Chernobyl disaster, following which she moved to America and founded The Olga Korbut Foundation for the child victims of Chernobyl.
