Yelena Isinbayeva is proof that true athleticism cannot be stopped. This Russian Olympian may have fallen in love with gymnastics at a young age, but when she grew too tall to pursue her gymnastic dreams, she set her sights on pole vaulting. Today, she has set 27 world records and won 19 gold medals in indoor and outdoor championships. She still holds the world record for outdoor pole vault! You can currently find Yelena preparing for the track and filed events in London, so watch out for this inspirational sports star!
