Gymnast Kerri Strug Vaults into Marriage
Olympic gold medalist Kerri Strug has a jewel on her finger to compliment the bling around her neck. The gymnast famous for getting injured during her vault at the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta exchanged vows with Robert Fischer, according to People.
In a sunset ceremony in her hometown of Tuscon, AZ, she wed her attorney husband on Sunday. Kerri shimmered down the aisle in a custom Pronovias gown, decorated with 5,000 Swarovski crystals.
"Robert always wants to make me happy," Strug told People. "He's a little old-fashioned. He really courted me, and for a while. To this day, he still gives me flowers on a regular basis."
The first man to literally sweep her off her feet, coach Bela Karolyi, was there to see his protégé become a wife. Bela carried the injured Kerri from the competition floor and to the podium to receive the gold medal with her teammates. Fellow "Magnificent Seven" gymnast Dominique Moceanu was also on the guest list.
The momentous occasion was hosted at the Skyline Country Club before 200 family and friends. The couple blended their faiths, merging Jewish and Christian customs into the proceedings. Guests were treated to a lavish fireworks display in the night sky and were surrounded by hundreds of orchids.
With her high-flying and body-suit wearing days in her past, Kerri couldn't wait to dive right into her wedding cake. "I'll be honest: I'm really excited about the cake. Remember, I was on a diet for a lot of my life!"
