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 when at the 1994 Commonwealth Games in Victoria, Canada she took out all 5 gold medals - ball, rope, clubs, ribbon & the all-around title - setting an all-time 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. Although she competed for Australia, she trained at the California Academy of Rhythmic Gymnastics.
