Oksana Chusovitina is defying odds at the 2016 Rio Summer Olympics. At age 41, the Uzbekistan gymnast appeared at the Olympics for a record 7th time.

To put things in perspective, Chusovitina, who is also a mother to her 17-year-old son, competed in her first Olympic games in 1992, before Simone Biles was even born.
