Yelena Lvovna Shushunova (Russian: Елена Львовна Шушунова; name sometimes rendered Elena Shushunova; born 23 April 1969) is a Russian (former Soviet) gymnast, World, European, and Olympic Champion. Shushunova is one of only two women (Ludmilla Tourischeva being the other) who has won the grand slam of All-Around titles: Olympics, World Championships, World Cup and European Championships. Shushunova was the first to perform several difficult skills including a Yurchenko vault with 1.5 twists, a release on the uneven bars, and her signature Shushunova (a straddle jump to land in a front lying support) on floor exercise. Shushunova was renowned for pioneering complex skills as well as for her explosive and dynamic tumbling and high consistency, although she lacked the form and artistry of some of her rivals.
