Oksana Chusovitina

Alright. You may be thinking, who? But we put Oksana on this list because she’s pure inspiration. In a sport where 20 is practically a senior citizen (Yeah, we’re talking to you Nastia and Shawn), Oksana shows us that spirit transcends age. This 37 year olld German gymnast is competing in her SIXTH OLYMPICS. Most of her competition wasn’t born when she competed in her first Olympics, and not only that, she’s still the 5th best vaulter in the world. Whoa. We’ll let that marinate.
