EVENT: 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta
COMPLEX SAYS: What's so badass about gymnastics? A brief history lesson on the Magnificent Seven will answer your question. Led by Shannon Miller, the '96 squad became the first team to win a gold medal for the U.S. in the women's gymnastics team competition. The defining moment came here as Kerri Strug fought off an ankle injury to stick the landing on one leg and advance to the All-Around finals. More badass than a lot of today's male athletes? No doubt, son.
