There are very few gymnasts in the last fifteen years I can actually call myself a fan of. The power gymnasts don’t have enough artistry. The Artistic gymnasts couldn’t sniff the real artistry we had back in the 80’s and 90’s and gymnastics as a sport doesn’t hold a candle to what made me a fan back in the day that is why it is so rare for me to actually call myself a fan of a specific gymnast.
That is why Jiang Yuyuan is the only gymnast who has competed in the last fifteen years I am proud to call myself a fan of.
Powerful enough to do an Amanar. Clean enough to swing the Uneven Bars with precision and good form and artistic enough to make ME (yes me) love a happy go lucky gymnast that smiles for the camera even if she doesn’t hit her best routine.
So thanks Yuyuan for your contribution to the sport. You literally made my Century in gymnastics and I will go to my grave convinced you should have won the bronze medal on floor at the 2008 Olympic Games.
Have fun at University:)
Some of my favorite Jiang Yuyuan moments
Winning the Silver medal in the AA at the 2010 World Championships. Of course you can’t watch NBC and get this kind of coverage. Thank you Telemundo:) She tears up when she see’s her score. Aww
CCTV interview after her win
The 2008 Olympic Event Finals Floor. She was robbed in favor of Nelli Kim’s favorite little Russian bitch. Shame on the politics of the Olympic Games. Sadly the only version I could find was NBC. The comments section is full of people thinking she was robbed and the worlds resident stalker fanatic defending the Russian bitch’s win. Color me shocked:)
China wins team Gold. Parts ten and Eleven. Jiang’s floor is in part ten and the celebration is in part 11
