This day in Sports History articles usually don’t mention Gymnastics unless its someone like Mary Lou Retton so I was kind of surprised to see not only a gymnastics mention but a Shannon Miller mention and about a World Championships no less. What happened in 2007 was a Highlight too but it isn’t gym related:)
1994 — Shannon Miller wins the women’s all-around title for the second straight year at the World Gymnastics Championships in Brisbane, Australia. The last woman to win consecutive all-around titles was Ludmilla Tourischeva of the Soviet Union in 1970 and 1974.
The Boston Marathon took place today and went off without a hitch. USA-Gymnastics Salutes the Boston Marathon
France, Romania and Belgium had a trio meet where Larisa Iordache won the AA. Looks like the my hope for Romanians future on bars finally put together a meet where she finished first in the AA. (Juniors)
According to the judges this is supposed to be the best floor routine in College gymnastics. Amazing first skill but I don’t understand what is so impressive about this floor routine besides the first pass. Less than perfect leaps. Bent knee’s, bad music. Nothing we haven’t seen for the last 8 years.
