World Star Chusovitina starts for Uzbekistan again

February 19, 2013

Following a decision taken on Friday by the Executive Committee of the FIG the exceptional 37-year-old athlete Oksana CHUSOVITINA, who has a German passport since 2006, will again compete for her native country Uzbekistan.
With the support of the Uzbek Gymnastics Federation Oksana Chusovitina submitted an application, which included the consent of the German Gymnastics Federation, with the intention, to start again for her original country, where her unique sport career begun nearly a quarter century before.
 
Specialist on vault, Oksana Chusovitina was very present last year by winning the silver medal in this discipline at the European Women’s Artistic Gymnastics Championships in Brussels/BEL and obviously by participating in the Olympic Games in London winning the 5th place in the vault’s final.
 
 
Her athletic goal is to participate at the 2016 Olympics in Rio - the 7th time in a row! 
That would be a unique record in artistic gymnastics...!
