Atlanta Olympics 1996, Women’s Vault event.

One of the most memorable moment of Olympics is the performance by American gymnast Kerri Strug during her vault competition win Gold medal even after performing with injured ankle.

During the vault competition of final rotation on the final day of the team competition of Atlanta Olympics 1996

Kerri strug all ready to perform but slightly injured her ankle with a poor landing that moment is really a moment of suffering for strug but he perform vault again and in that vault with an injured ankle she scores perfect and lands well.

It is a great example of your love towards game and nation and even the pain of Injurred ankle not stop her to win the medal for her nation.

Kerri won the Gold medal for USA in 1996 Atlanta Olympics

Strug would tell the media later. “Then she fell a second time, and it was like, ‘Forget this. This is a nightmare.’ My heart was beating like crazy, knowing that it was now up to me. I thought, ‘This is it, Kerri. You’ve done this vault a thousand times, so just go out and do it.'”
