Korbut Flip ontroversy at the Olympic games



1972 was the year that Soviet gymnast Olga Korbut performed a now-banned gymnastics move known as the "Korubt flip." (On the uneven bars, the Korbut flip involves the gymnast standing on the high bar, doing a back flip and then re-grasping the bar.) It's now outlawed because of the risk in performing it, but man, did it get people talking back then.
