“”I found (gymnastics) because my brother came home one day and said ‘Cathy, there’s a trampoline at the local youth center. Do you want to jump on it?’ And I said, ‘Are you nuts?‘ ” – Cathy Rigby

Rigby won the silver medal for Balance Beam at the 1970 World Championships.  Yes, it’s true.  The US started winning medals before Karolyi showed up.
