Vault into spotlight The Americans were neck-in-neck with the Russians in the team gymnastics competition at the 1996 Games in Atlanta when disaster struck. On her first attempt at the vault, American gymnast Kerri Strug injured her ankle. She hobbled up for her second attempt and successfully landed it despite the pain. But Strug couldn't put any weight on her injured ankle, which led to a moment many fans remember as her coach carried her to the podium to receive her gold medal.
