On behalf of Uzbekistan’s Gymnastics Federation, I would like to offer my sincere congratulations to our gymnasts who have qualified for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.

After qualifying for Rio 2016, Uzbekistan’s Oksana Chusovitina (WAG) has become the first female gymnast to compete in a record-setting seventh Olympic Games, adding another chapter to her glittering and inspirational career.
