Olympic great visits local gymnastics facility for meet and greet

As for her favorite gymnasts, Miller told the students at FVG that she loved U.S Olympian great Marylou Retton. But Miller said she wasn’t built like Retton and couldn’t do what Retton did as a gymnast. She said the gymnast that had the greatest influence on her was Svetlana Boginskaya. Boginskaya’s style of gymnastics had more of a ballet-style than an athletic approach, said Miller. And Miller said that style fit more with her own skills as a gymnast.
