Did you enjoy this back in time video of Phoebe Mills doing her animated floor exercise at the 1988 Olympics?  She put so much energy, as well as skill, into her performances that everyone loved her!

She was an amazing gymnast.  But what is also amazing is how she didn’t stop there as an athlete.  She became a diver for awhile and later a snow boarder.

It’s always interesting to find out about a famous gymnast’s life after gymnastics.  So what is she up to now?
