|More about KOSTINA Oxana:|
|The russian World Champion Oksana Kostina lost her life in a car crash 11th February 1993, shortly before her 20th birthday.
She was engaged to Eduard Zenovka, Pentathlon bronze-medalist at the Olympic Games in Barcelona. He drove the car which crashed into a truck. Both were seriously injured and needed surgery in hospital, where Oksana died a couple of hours later.
Oksana Kostina was much too long in the shadow of the two Ukrainian gymnasts Oksana Skaldina and Alexandra Timoshenko, but she won many international events before her excellent results at the 1992 European Championships. It was very hard for her not to be selected for the Olympic Games in Barcelona and she had to be patient until the World Championships in Brussels, where she became the new RG Queen, winning all gold medals.
She will be remembered for her beauty, exceptional talent, her perfect technique and most expressive style.ag.
