One of the most memorable sporting event moments in history occurred 20 years ago when the Magnificent Seven won the first ever team gold for the United States. It was a heated competition between the U.S. and Russia throughout the Team Final event. In a very dramatic ending, Kerri Strug landed her Vault after falling and injuring her ankle on the first one in order to seal the deal for the gold medal. It was an amazing moment in Olympic history.

If you have never seen the 1996 Team Final competition, you will definitely want to check it out on YouTube.
