My Story Summary


My Story: The Autobiography of Olga Korbut by Olga Korbut

During the Munich Olympics of 1972 - a small teenager weighing 85lbs captivated the world with her acrobatic grace and winning smile, collecting 3 gold medals and one silver for the Soviet Union. This book takes the reader through Olga's life and looks at how the Soviet authorities initially 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 caused by Chernobyl. Now, in 1992, Olga is recovering from persistent ill health. She has moved to America where she founded The Olga Korbut Foundation for the child victims of Chernobyl.
