Curly Girls.

I am a curly girl. Fros are good, always, whether they be afro, wafro or jewfro. This therefore is a celebration of my favourite curly girls in gymnastics. Nasty 80s perms that look like the council did them do not count, except maybe for Daniela Silivas.

In first place, the incomparable Tatiana Lysenko during her finest hour, the 1992 Olympic beam final.

Second up, Annia Portuondo Hatch. That power! That backstory! Those luscious locks!

Bronze medal to Elena Produnova, pictured here performing the vaulting equivalent of smacking the horse in the mouth. Otherwise known as the handspring double front.
