Khorkina's videos - 1997

Svetlana Khorkina Floor World Championships 1997

In 1997 Svetlana Khorkina included the Khorkina at the end of her floor routine (a 1½ turn in horizontal plan to land in front support) and will keep it until she retired. Even though she won the all around for the first time, the World Championships were full of controversies. First she refused to perform her second vault on the vault final after a fall on her first attempt. Then Kui Yuanyuan scored 9.787 during the beam final, same as Svetlana, but lots thought the spectacular beam of Kui was underscored and Svetlana should not have won silver.
