6 May 1980|
Kasumi Takahashi is a Japanese-Australian rhythmic gymnast who lives in Los Angeles, California, United States. She was born to a Japanese father and an Australian mother on 6 May 1980 in Tokyo, Japan.
She was an overnight success at the 1994 Commonwealth Games in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, when she took out all five gold medals - ball, rope, clubs, ribbon and the all-around title - setting an Australian record. However, her ribbon victory attracted some protest from the Canadian crowd, many of whom would have liked to see home gymnast Camille Martens rewarded with gold.
Kasumi retired from the sport in 1998 after suffering stress fractures in her back. Although she competed for Australia, she trained at the California Academy of Rhythmic Gymnastics.
