5. Then: Kerri Strug
Everyone remembers the moment where Kerri Strug hyper-rotated her ankle but still preceded to go for a second vault to win the competition… and that she did! But she came out of it with a really bad injury, meaning the gymnastic coach Bella Karolyi had to carry her to the podium to collect her medal.
6. Now: Madison Kocian
Madison currently holds the title for world champion on the uneven bars. She’s hoping her ankle injury from earlier this year won’t stop her from triumphing at this year’s games. Let’s hope she doesn’t have a Kerri Strug moment on the podium!
