Gymnastics - 1972 Munich Olympics - Women's Balance Beam
The USSR's Olga Korbut on the way to winning the gold medal in the balance beam in the Sports Hall, Olympic Park, Munich, West Germany. During the event she became one of the first persons ever to do a backward somersault on the balance beam in competition.
At the 1972 Games the 17 year-old Korbut won gold medals in the balance beam, floor exercises, and team event, and a silver in the uneven bars. Her open display of emotion and tears, after a disastrous uneven bars routine cost her a medal in the individual competition, captivated the Munich audience and endeared her to millions watching on television.
