Finland has the sisters Vanessa Martins Lopes and Sara Martins Lopes. I think Sara has retired now, and coaches, but she was in the Finnish group at Worlds one year.

Here's a picture of Vanessa.

A small group picture with both sisters.

If you look at the 2002 Worlds pictures at these sites, you will find photos with a couple of Cuban gymnasts from the group event.

I couldn't find any photos of her, but Wania Monteiro of Cap Verde was the "wild card" gymnast in the 2004 Olympics.

Here's another picture of Vanessa, taken by Julia Meltoranta in 2001.
It is unusual to see a gymnast wearing glasses! It's part of the reason she appealed to me, it just seemed so sensible :D

Plus I used to wear glasses when I did artistic gymnastics, until the tricks started getting a bit harder.

Oh and it seems that the little girl in the previous post is Tyler Rosemond, not Rosemond Tyler!

Hey everyone, check out these new links I found on Wendy Hilliard!

sports.espn.go.com . . .

(Video under the section "This is how we lift our world")

www.cstv.com . . .

(See video)

The clips don't show much action of Wendy, just a couple photos, but they have some black kids doing rhythmic gymnastics in them.

And here's Wendy's own website.
