Mo began Gymnastics at the age of 6 and was soon good enough to be selected to attend the National training centre in
Mo's first International Competition was in 1994,where she competed in the Asian Games.
Mo was sensational.She took 6 Gold medals from 7 possibles.It was only a fall from the Beam that stopped her gaining
the seventh Gold.
As she progressed,Mo earned the nickname 'Mighty Mouse'.
She helped the Chinese team to a Silver medal at the 1995 World Championships and qualified for the All Around competition
in 1st place.
Although a slightly low score on the Beam meant she only finished the All Around in 6th.
She had however,qualified for all 4 Apparatus finals,bouncing back from a dissapointing All Around competition to take
4th on Vault,2nd on Bars,4th on Floor and 1st on the Beam.
It was then on to Atlanta for the Olympics of 1996.
The Chinese team finished the Team Competition in 4th place behind the USA,Russia and Romania.
Mo found herself within reach of winning Gold All Around but a small mistake on her final piece,the Floor,meant she ended
up finishing in 5th.
She had qualifed for 2 Apparatus finals,finishing 6th on Floor and winning a Silver medal on the Beam.
