BUT she does have the record for most individual titles for a gymnast. She's the only gymnast who's medaled in all individual apparatuses. 40 plus years and no one has done that. She did get to work as a coach in Mexico, but only after the country threatened an oil embargo. Later, she was presented with the Olympic Order and was able to work as a judge and coach in her home country. Her life changed dramatically as soon as the USSR imploded: she became famous dissident turned president Václav Havel's advisor and Honorary President of the Czech-Japan Association. Soon, she was promoted to the IOC membership committee.
Let us not forget that she started out as a figure skater. I don't think figure skating really figures into gymnastics, so it's a pretty difficult switch. As I watched several of her routines, I realized how much ballet was a part of floor exercise. I watched it and thought, "Is this a ballet competition?" There was very little in the way of acrobatics (the double salto with a full twist was introduced by Mukhina almost a decade later) and it was mostly dance and doing the splits. I have to admit, sometimes I think the dance part is completely neglected on the floor exercise, so it's nice to see it done with such aplomb. Her balance beam routine was also ballet like with very little acrobatics. Vault was similarly simplistic acrobatically, but she still rocked it solid gold.
Her whole story shows that she's one badass woman. She defied the USSR, which controlled her country, when the whole world shook in their boots at the thought. No one tried not to provoke the red beast, but Čáslavská just looked down and away on the international stage. Take that.
