Biography

Tatiana Gutsu

Current Location: Oakland County, Michigan

Tatiana was born on September 5th, 1976 in a port city of Odessa, Ukraine. Tatiana began practicing gymnastics at the age of five and immediately showed the potential to be a stand out athlete. From her youth, Tatiana never stopped working hard to achieve her dream of becoming an Olympic medalist. 

 

As a child, Tatiana trained rigorously under renowned coaches Victor Dikii and Tamila Evdokimova. In 1988, Tatiana became a member of the Soviet Union National team and just two years later she became a star when she won five gold medals in the European Championships. 

 

After a strong start to her young career, Tatiana qualified for the Olympic Games. In 1992, the games were held in Barcelona, Spain and after 11 years of hard work she was ready to perform in the world spotlight. Tatiana brought home the gold in the women's all-around competition and won other various medals, as well. Her gold medal win was the first time the Ukrainian flag had been raised in the history of the Olympics. 

 

Today, Tatiana resides in Metro Detroit, Michigan where she continues to coach young gymnasts and helps inspire athletes to reach their goals, whatever they may be. It is her goal to help young gymnasts and athletes to become all they can be when it comes to athletic ability.

 

Tatiana Gutsu is available for personal coaching and appearances.
