Here you can see Yelena and Heidi-Marie Oosthuizen, future South African and African gymnastics champion who met and trained together at CSKA in Moscow in 1992.
In the group pic, taken in Durban, you can see from left to right Craig van Deventer, former junior SA gymnast, Nina Oosthuizen, half the age, but bigger than Yelena, Heidi-Marie Oosthuizen, former South African and African champion, Julia Maslinnikova, Yana Cherokova, Heather Van Deventer, a tiny Yelena and Nadezhda Maslennikova.
