By grabbing the gold medal on floor exercise at the 2021 Doha World cup, Vanessa Ferrari earned an individual spot for the Tokyo Olympics.

Having competed at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, 2012 London Olympics, and 2016 Rio Olympics, Tokyo will be Vanessa's fourth Olympic Games.

This will be the first time for a female Italian gymnast to compete at four Olympic Games.

Her teammate Lara Mori came in second place on floor exercise in Doha, losing the Olympic individual spot.

This is not the first time for the 30 year old gymnast to make history. In 2006, she won Italy's first all around gold medal at World championships.
