I am getting old and losing my memory but here are three so far. I should update with some more
Routine: Henrietta Onodi
Low landing on the last pass should have still won her Gold on floor IMO but there was no way the HBIC was going to let Henrietta beat a Romanian.
Routine: Shannon Miller GWG, 1994
There were a million versions of this floor routine of Shannon’s that I could have used for this but The Goodwill Games event finals is by far my favorite.
Shannon competed at Nationals in the US and The Goodwill Games IN Russia in a matter of weeks and all she got for her troubles was to be treated like crap by USA-gymnastics. They never wanted her to be their “it” gymnast much preferring anyone coached by Bela Karolyi and it really must have killed them that she went onto to be America’s best gymnast. Anyway after being jet lagged Shannon showed just who she was winning 4 medals in the event finals after losing her first AA in 2 years.
Liz Reid College Gymnastics
For years I was told if I wanted to be known as someone that knew about dance I had to be a fan of Elizabeth Reid. I resisted and resisted until I saw this routine. This I liked even if she has some weird “balletic” choreography at 42 seconds in:)
