Elena Mukhina was the 1978 World Championships AA champion. A tremendous expertise for her time.
Did Elena compete the first 1 1/2 twist step-out?
Recall the tragedy when she broke her neck two weeks earlier than the opening of the 1980 Summer time Olympics, leaving her completely quadriplegic. That was on a now-banned rollout ability on Ground. Her coach Mikhail Klimenko was blamed by Elena.
She died doubtless of problems from quadriplegia on 22 December 2006 (aged 46). Klimenko died of most cancers age-65.
