Having watched artistic gymnastics, it being one of my favourites sports, for MANY years, I could not help but notice the strange looking tumble in the video that I had posted earlier (0.56).
It was partly a flip, and partly a cartwheel, and she looked dangerously close to breaking her neck on landing.
The gymnast in the purple and black leotard is the Russian Yelena Shushunova, and the event was in the Seoul Summer Olympics in 1988.
To illustrate how difficult it is to execute the manoeuvre, here is a video where she had failed (1.02), losing her place on the podium for the floor exercise event final.
And here is one (1.01) where it was done perfectly, and she was awarded a perfect 10.0, contributing to her gold medal win for the all around.

One section of this video is really cute.
Mao and Yu-na seem to be looking for each other telepathically (4:10).
"Yu-na, are you up there?"
"Mao, I can't see you!"
