More about PODKOPAYEVA Lilia:
The most accomplished gymnast of recent decades, Lilia is the current World, European and Olympic champion.

She possesses the perfect combination of power and artistry, which is particularly evident in her floor routines. She is the only gymnast in the world, male or female, able to perform a double front somersault with half turn on floor.

When she was young her coach took her to see ballet performances at the theatre in Donetsk which inspired Lilia in her dance elements in the floor exercise.

She loves to perform to the crowd, but at the same time is a very gracious and modest person.(GymStars/Nov. 96)

She retired in 1997.
