    The vault has messy bent legs. I love how honest she is about how 10.0 was just given, and how the new scoring system does as its meant to do.

    When you think about how far the floor apparatus itself has come as far as the mechanics of the spring floor it makes the double tuck even more obsolete at the elite level. Especially when you have JO gymnasts competing double backs pretty routinely

    Can you imagine being Khorkinas child…. just think about that….. I’m sure she is a great mom 🙂

  4. Guest Says:

    That fact that Svetlana has the same birthday as Shawn.

    Even the full in double back somersault…Kyla can’t even do those floor passes anymore. Sigh. And she’s one of those double tuck people. I agree though maybe that move needs to be downgraded.
