The 2012 Olympics held some great moments and some- not so great for gymnastics. I thought it would be fun to, about a 년 later, look back at my 가장 좋아하는 moments for rhythmic (5) and men’s (3) and women’s (5) artistic gymnastics. I’m not that into trampoline, so I’m not ranking it. There’s a video at the end of each of the routine descriptions so 당신 can watch it for yourself- if 당신 can’t remember it!
5. Evgenia Kanaeva- Ribbon All Around Final
This ribbon routine is just amazing. And, of course, I had to have a Zhenya routine! Other than a little flub at the beginning, this routine was practically perfect. The ending was beautiful. Evgenia is the only 체조 선수 who could perform to Chopin! She made it look so effortless. I really can’t describe it better than the routine itself: link
