At the 1992 Olympic Games in Barcelona, 20-year-old gymnast Vitaly Shcherbo of Minsk made history with his gold medal-winning ways. He began by leading the squad from the ex-Soviet Union to victory in the team event.

Six gold medals

Next he put together a superb and consistent performance to win in the individual all-around competition title. Then, on 2 August, Shcherbo took part in the individual apparatus finals. He won the parallel bars, the vault and the rings and tied for first place on the pommel horse to become the first person in Olympic history to win four gold medals in one day. Vitaly was also the first gymnast to win six gold medals in one edition of the Games. He returned to the Games in 1996 and earned four bronze medals: in the all-around competition, the horizontal bars, the parallel bars and vault events.
