I've played a lot of sports myself & watched a lot more in my 67 years, but I don't believe I've ever seen a more inspiring moment of individual courage than Keri Strug's performance in the 1986 Olympics: after destroying her ankle in a previous, failed vault-attempt, she completed the twisting Yurchenko (perhaps the most difficult move in women's gymnastics) and received a score of 9.712 (out of a possible 10.000), leading the U.S. team to its first-ever gold medal in women's gymnastics.

The 1996 USA Team, who will forever be known as The Magnificent Seven. The team consisted of both veterans and newcomers, with team captain Amanda Borden, Amy Chow, Dominique Dawes, Shannon Miller, Dominique Moceanu, Jaycie Phelps and Kerri Strug. This group was considered America’s best chance to take home an Olympic gold as a team. And take it they did!! Love the mag 7!!

Will there ever be a gymnastics team like this again? *My favorite ever!* The 1996 USA Team, who will forever be known as The Magnificent Seven. The team consisted of both veterans and newcomers, with team captain Amanda Borden, Amy Chow, Dominique Dawes, Shannon Miller, Dominique Moceanu, Jaycie Phelps and Kerri Strug. This group was considered America’s best chance to take home an Olympic gold as a team, and take it they did!! Love the magnificent 7!!
After Strug landed her one-legged vault attempt, the Magnificent Seven became the first Americans to win the women's gymnastics team competition at the Olympics. Miller added gold in the balance beam, Dawes got bronze in the floor exercise. The United States Olympic Women's Gymnastics Team won the first ever Gold Medal for the U.S. in Women's Team Competition at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics. Shannon Miller, Dominique Moceanu, Dominique Dawes, Kerri Strug, Amy Chow, Amanda Borden, and Jaycie Phelps.

One of my favorite all time moments in sports history: Kerri Strug, 1996 Olympic games, vaulting on a hurt ankle to win the gold for the USA. Incredibly inspiring.
Keri Strug's vault at the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games. My fave Olympic moment ever. Landing on the sprained ankle & winning USA team gold. Bela on the sidelines "You can do it, Keri" then carrying her off.
Kerri Strug. Who can forget that Olympic moment when this tiny gymnast nailed the landing on a vault with a broken foot. Fierce and determined, she pushed through the pain to lead her team to Olympic Gold. That's a teammate I'd love to have. #sisterheroes @oiselle
One of the greatest moments in American Olympic history! Kerri Strug was a member of the victorious all-around U.S. women's gymnastics team at the 1996 Olympics. She is remembered for "sticking" the landing of a winning vault on one leg due to an ankle injury. During the medal ceremony she was subsequently carried to the podium by her coach, Bela Karolyi. I was watching this when originally aired and it still gives me chills & thrills. God gives us great spiritual, mental & physical prowess!

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.
Kerri Strug, landed a gold medal-winning vault with an injured ankle -- never forget those olympics and that moment! Have it on vhs and everything.

And the video of it...god this brings me back. The Magnificent 7, USA gymnastics just isn't the same.
Kerri Allyson Strug (born November 19, 1977) is a retired #American #gymnast from Tucson, #Arizona. She was a member of the Magnificent Seven, the victorious all-around #women's gymnastics team that represented the United States at the Atlanta #Olympics in 1996, and is best remembered for performing the vault despite having injured her ankle.
1996 Altanta Olympics - Kerri Strug's Gold Medal Vault I was 18 and this moment was burned in my mind. still gives me goosebumps
True inspiration!!! Kerri Strug lands a vault on one foot with a third-degree lateral sprain and tendon damage.
1996 Altanta Olympics - Kerri Strug's Gold Medal Vault..... I remember being allowed to stay up late and watch this as a kid!
Kerri Strug was an unheralded member of the U.S. gymnastics team, but she exemplified pure grit in the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games. After star American gymnast Dominque Moceanu fell on two straight vaults, it was up to Strug to save the U.S. women’s hopes of securing a gold medal and ending the Russian’s forty year dominance. Strug failed on her first attempt, but with a busted ankle, she stuck the second landing…and the rest is history.

This is Kerri Walsh. In this image, her body hasn't been made ultra-thin by Photoshop. There's none of the computer-generated sameness given to print catalog models. She's an elite athlete, and her thighs are touching. More importantly, she has loved, respected, and taken care of her body, and it rewarded her with a moment like this. // Kerri Walsh Jennings (P.S. She's five weeks pregnant here.)
Meet the extraordinary Kerri Walsh Jennings. A professional beach volleyball player and philanthropist who is most famous for winning the gold medals in the 2004, 2008 and 2012 Summer Olympic Games with her partner Misty May-Treanor.
