Watch this video of one of the most inspiring moments from Olympics past. U.S. gymnast Kerri Strug is performing the Vault in the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta. On her first vault she hurts her ankle on the landing. We later find out that she has a moderate sprain. With this sprain she shouldn’t vault again. However, with tremendous courage she performs the vault and even with the hurt ankle she wins the Gold! Amazing! Now that is the stuff heroes are made of!
