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...

  • Kathryn Ruhl

    Where were her family members? Parents and grandparents? Friends? No-one to support her? How disgusting!!

  • Lucy Newman

    This is absolutely outrageous, they took her cast off TWICE, the second time was after surgery. They say it wasn’t the coaches fault but i think it absolutely was. He made her start training after breaking her leg and then again after SURGERY. This is a devastating loss that could have easily been prevented if the coach hadn’t been so greedy! This is so messed up

  • Life With Shannon

    Wow how horrific! I had never heard of her until I came across this today. That is just so damn sad and terrible. The pressure is always on the good ones because they carry everyone else. They, in turn, get treated like garbage. So sad.

  • Heidi V

    That's totally Russia for you. They got away with it once and I'm sure they'd do it again

  • Stalker Mo

    What is the title of the song used? And also, R.I.P Gymnast Angel...Wish she had more prosperous years to live forward to

  • David Gill

    This is so sad, lets be honest you was just a tool for their programme to win at all cost. RIP.
