Doris and her sister, Ingeborg arrived with their parents to Rochester in 1951, after spending four
years in a European refugee camp. The family lived in Greece and Doris attended Marshall High in her junior year.
By a special act of Congress, she was granted US citizenship- paving the way for her to join the Olympic gymnastics team.
Doris is remembered for her ground-breaking, continuous performance at the 1966 World Championships, an unusual animated effort which ended with a
flying dismount. She was an alternate for the US in the 1964 games in Tokyo.
