Oksana Chusovitina is back in the gym training! Oksana wowed the world last summer after being the first female gymnast to compete in seven consecutive Olympic Games at the age of 41. Oksana has been hard at work since the Rio Olympic Games and is showing no signs of retirement any time soon. Oksana is known for her powerful vault skills, but she has been posting many videos on her Instagram showing off her training on the other events.

Svetlana Boguinskaia, a long-time friend of Oksana and one of her personal coaches, also posted this photo of the Olympian on her Instagram

Since Oksana was originally intending on retiring after the 2012 London Olympic Games, many people believed that the 2016 Rio Olympic Games might be her last. Seeing that she is currently fully immersed in training, we are very excited to see what Oksana’s future gymnastics career looks like. Could we possibly see her in her 8th Olympic appearance in 2020? I guess we’ll have to wait and see!
