She won the Olympic gold medal in the all-around in Munich in 1972, after capturing the all-around title at the 1970 World Championships and the 1971 European Championships. She then went on to win the 1973 European all-around title and the 1974 World Championships title, dominating world gymnastics for that four year span.
