  1. I'm French and I'll never forget this moment in Atlanta… I loved her and I still love her today… It's the typical example of courage, bravoure and transcendance ever…..

  2. Her voice matches to me! She sounds as sweet, soft, & beautiful as she looks and is! Seems like she may be the epitome of being beautiful on the inside and out!

  3. I have absolutely nothing against her voice. I think it's lovely. BUT, it is very common for girls who were abused, especially sexually, to have a very childlike voice into adulthood. Knowing what her coach was like, I can't help but be greatly concerned.

  4. I thought this (voice) happens to a lot of gymnast due to the amount of stress they put on their body.

  5. This was one of my favorite gymnasts. I always had the feeling she suffered bulling from her own coach (Bela Caroli)

  6. She won our hearts back in the day. I came here just to listen to her voice again. We still love her.

  7. The injury occurred on the first vault, not the second. She did not retire just because of this injury either.
