LatiNegr@s Project: Daiane dos Santos
Daiane dos Santos is a gymnast from Brasil. She is one of the country's most famous gymnast and is also an educator teaching physical education at a University in Brasil. She has created two tumbles/flips/floor exercises named after her that she performs. Because your girl does not know too much about the Olympics and how things work (or don't) and how other such competitions emerge, I can't break down her accomplishments any other way than to give you this link here.
Check her out at the World Cup Final where she incorporates samba moves into her tumbling. Please also notice the height she can take her body too.
Here she is in the 2008 World Cup Tianjin Finals:
