Additional Information

Having initially announced her retirement after the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo, she later reversed her decision and said she had set her sights on the 19th asian games in Hangzhou, People's Republic of China, and the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris. "I just can't finish my career without a medal for Uzbekistan. I thought about it well and decided that after the Asian Games I will also prepare for the 2024 Olympics in Paris. The biggest motivation is my desire. I want to perform, I like it. I love gymnastics, and this occupation brings me great pleasure. I'm just doing what I love, why should I stop?" (sport-express, 24 May 2022; olympic, 08 May 2022; olympics, 30 Sep 2021; sports, 01 Oct 2021; gazeta, 13 Aug 2021; gymnovosti, 26 Jul 2021)

Born in Bukhara, Uzbekistan, she made her international debut for the Soviet Union. Following the dissolution of the Soviet Union, she represented the Unified Team at the 1992 Olympic Games in Barcelona and later began competing for Uzbekistan. In 2002 her son Alisher was diagnosed with leukaemia, so her family moved to Germany, where he could receive treatment. She obtained German citizenship in 2006, winning a silver medal for her adopted nation at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing. She returned to compete for Uzbekistan in 2013, having been given special dispensation by the executive committee of the International Gymnastics Federation [FIG].

In March 2022 the president of Uzbekistan signed a decree on the opening of the Oksana Chusovitina Gymnastics Academy in Tashkent, Uzbekistan. "It was my old dream. Perhaps, already in adulthood, I did not want anything as much as this academy. I waited for it for many years, like a child for a New Year's gift. Until now, there was not a single academy, no centralised school in Uzbekistan. Only now we are starting to buy equipment, to develop the sport, including in the regions. If we have strong gymnasts and someone beats me, I will only rejoice." (sports, 18 Aug 2023)

In October 2017 she was elected as the women's artistic gymnastics representative for the International Gymnastics Federation [FIG] Athletes' Commission. (gymnovosti, 06 Oct 2017)
