|Asymetrical Parallel Bars||9th||gold||gold||3240|
|Team with Portable Apparatus||bronze||640|
This seemingly fragile Russian gymnast would have won even more honours if
she had not been a contemporary of Larissa
Latynina. At Tokyo, she finished only 0.033pt behind Latynina in an event
won by Vera Caslávská (CZE). On
the assymetrical bars Caslavska seemed likely to finish first but missed
a pirouette off the top bar and fell, thus allowing Astakhova to take her
second individual gold medal in that event.
