Almudena Cid Tostado is a Spanish rhythmic gymnast and the oldest competing rhythmic gymnast. She entered the finals of four consecutive Olympics, in Atlanta 1996, Sydney 2000, Athens 2004 and Beijing 2008.
This is a piece of her work, with the ribbon. Not the highest scoring and technically accurate piece but I was nearly moved to tears by this piece. It may be her last Olympics and I can obviously see that she performed with her heart and soul in in. It is almost like watching Sasha Cohen in 2006 Nationals Figure Skating.
