Shannon Lee Miller (Phillips / Falconetti)

Captain of the 1996 "Magnificent Seven" team...

...Shannon is the most decorated gymnast (male or female) in American sports history with a combined 16 World Championship and Olympic medals.
She was a member of both the 1992 and '96 teams, and tried (but failed) to make the 2000 squad.
Shannon is also an ovarian cancer survivor.

Jaycie Phelps

Another member of the 1996 "Magnificent 7" Olympic gymnastics team.
In many ways, the most under-rated of the team because she tends to shun the spotlight.

Cathy Rigby...the SECRET Pix!

Are there other risque pix of 1968-1972 Olympic gymnast Cathy Rigby?
She posed in a tastefully-done, heavily-filtered nude shot in the August 21, 1972 issue of Sports Illustrated, the only nude photo (except "body paint" shots in swimsuit specials) ever published in SI!
...and that's the only picture from that session that's ever been seen by the public...
Cropped image
...until now!
Check HERE on the 40th Anniversary, August 21, 2012, for details...
