COOL VIDEO: Olga Korbut 1972 Routine Still Amazing By Today’s Olympic Standards

You know how, sometimes, when they re-run old gold medal Olympics performances from 40 or 50 years ago, it seems like the athletes are just basically walking in a straight line and getting perfect scores? You won’t feel that way when you watch Olga Korbut at the 1972 Munich Olympics. Her routine included a move that is now banned, that includes standing on the high bar… and a craZAY switch from low to high bar. Amazing!
