A great Olympic champion, Olga Korbut, is helping to raise awareness for Multiple System Atrophy. "Olga Korbut, also known as the "Sparrow from Minsk", is a Belarusian, Soviet-born gymnast who won four gold medals and two silver medals at the Summer Olympic Games, in which she competed in 1972 and 1976 for the USSR team." according to Wikipedia. One of Olga's teamates, the great Soviet gymnast Nikolai Andrianov, died last March (2011) at age-58, after a long fight with multiple system atrophy. Please follow Olga on Twitter along with the @MSACoalition and @MSAawareness to help spread the word about this rare global neurodegenerative disorder.
