Kerri Strug
1996 Summer Olympics
The U.S. Women’s gymnastics team needed Strug to earn a 9.5 or better on her vault to seal the gold medal, but she fell on her first attempt, injuring her ankle. Her second pass, though, provided the defining image of the 1996 Atlanta Olympics: She landed her vault on one leg and earned a 9.712 — good enough to clinch the gold medal — before crumbling to the ground in pain.
