Olympian Dominique Moceanu Discovers Biological Sister, A Gymnast With No Legs

(WSCR) Before Dominique Moceanu, a member of the 1996 gold-medal-winning US women’s gymnastics team, gave birth to her first child in 2007, she received a letter than would change her life forever.

The letter, from a woman named Jennifer Bricker, said that Bricker and Moceanu were actually biological sisters. Their parents, Bricker wrote, gave her up for adoption when they found out that she had no legs.

Despite having no legs, Bricker, 24, is also a gymnast, like her sister. She even made it all the way to the Junior Olympics as a power tumbler.
