Oksana Kostina(Click to enlarge)
Born : 15th April 1973 in Irkoutsk
Died : 11th February 1993 in Moscow
Coach: Olga Buyanova
Oksana was the Star of the year 92, she got excellent results at the European
championships, she won the five titles at the 92 RSG Worlds in Belgium.
Although she did not participate at the Barcelona olympic Games, she obviously
was the best gym of the year.
She was in the shadow of the two Ukrainian gymnasts Alexandra Timoshenko and Oksana Skaldina. Even if both
won many events in the end of the 80's, Kostina was the most expressive of the three Soviet gymnasts.
She can be remembered by all the RSG lovers for her delightful and expressive style, her technical work,
her talent, and a really great kindness.
She was saying during the '90 Goodwill Games that RSG is "a sport, an art, the grace".
Oksana, we're still remembering you. You're a Star!
