Elena Mukhina: The Thomas Salto Tragedy — The Dark Side Of Life

Elena Vyacheslavovna Mukhina was born on June 1, 1960, in Moscow, Russian SFSR (now Moscow, Russia). When she was five years old both her parents passed away and she would end up being raised by her grandmother, Anna Ivanovna. Mukhina took an interest in gymnastics and figure skating at an early age. When an athletic scout visited her school, she volunteered to try out for the gymnastics team. Later, she joined CSKA Moscow (“Central Red Army”) sports club. She would eventually get inducted into the CSKA Hall of Fame. Up until 1975, Mukhina flew under the radar and Soviet coaches largely ignored her and her abilities. It would take two separate incidents to bring her to the forefront of the Soviet team.
