Gymnastics Tragedy - The Story Of Elena Mukhina

This is probably the LONGEST video I will ever make. I know many won't watch it mainly due to the length of it, but I HAD to just explain basically everything because the point of this video, for me at least, is that maybe a coach will see it and the tragey won't repeat, normal people will see it and remember her name. In general it's just historical video of one of the greatest gymnasts to ever be born. It is such a sad story so not recommended for the weak of hearts. Gymnastics is a cruel sport at times albeit a gorgeous one that your whole heart will love.

I will start off by saying that I didn't even know which song to use because there are hardly ANY that honor her. I didn't want to use a stupid song in the background, it HAD to be meaningful. In the end, after a long search, I returned to my initial options and narrowed the choices down to "¢ση¢яєтє αηgєℓ, мα∂ ωσяℓ∂ ωιтн му нєαят ωιℓℓ gσ ση & ℓιѕтєη тσ уσυя нєαят" being the two being the main songs I'd choose from while the other two due to soothing melody in the cover versions of other languages. ιмρσѕѕιвℓє was also an option at one point, but I finally decided on the song you hear in the video, мα∂ ωσяℓ∂ and I'd say the lyrics and tune do the justice. Sorry for rambling, next video should be happier!! :D ..Probably...

    From what I found out; her “trainer” was a relentless asshole who CLEARLY pushed her too far, she eventually died due to the the effects of her permanent severe injuries :( I think she was only 48
