46-year-old gymnast receives emotional farewell ovation after her 8th Olympics

Chusovitina has competed in every Olympics since 1992.

Born in 1975, the veteran gymnast has been competing since before most of the gymnasts competing in Tokyo were born. Chuso, as she is affectionately called by the gymnastics community, is a legend of the sport not only for her longevity but also her continued success. She won her first Olympic medal, a gold, in the 1992 team competition and added a silver on vault in Beijing.

Her average score of 14.166 was not high enough to place among the top eight and advance, but her appearance at these Olympics remains historic. She has indicated that Tokyo would be her last Games and seemed to give an emotional farewell after competing, but if the past eight Olympics are any indication, you should never count Chuso out.
