Olga Korbut’s double back

Olga Korbut

Even though it was 1976, this film looks like it was recorded during the Chaplin era. Nevertheless, rare footage of Olga Korbut doing a double back, shown at 1:20, as well as other stuff from the 1976 Olympic all-around is well worth a little fuzziness.

The dubbed-in version of “Malaguena” fits Nadia Comaneci’s floor routine pretty well, too. Thanks to Youtube user arthur93 for the amazing videos.
