Not a fan of Simone‘s new floor routine at all. There is not a lot of choreography in this routine and what there is , is not very good but no one tumbles like this kid and as always Simone has great presentation so I am sure it will score well. The music is okay but USA Gymnastics is sucking big time on the floor routines of 2016. They all seem the same.
Is the double Memmel turn in Aly ‘s floor routine new or do I usually just day dream through this routine and not remember it? She really needs to upgrade the double pike at the end and get a higher started value if she wants to make this team. That an hitting the Amanar.
I really enjoyed Laurie Hernandez‘s floor routine for the first time during this podium training. She sold it but she didn’t over sell it like she does during competition and it made the floor routine a hella lot less annoying than the past. She is a beautiful dancer and she danced through this routine unlike competition when she IMO doesn’t relax her arms enough to make it seem like dance. Like most of these routines there is not a lot of fluidity in the dancing. It’s straighten an arm to a movement then abruptly end. I don’t know if I explained this well enough but just go watch something from the 80’s or 90’s and you will understand what I mean.
Simone’s Cheng looks great. A little piked at the end. Laurie’s DTY needs way more height and distance and better form. oh Aly the Amanar is a mess. That did not look good at all but you stood it up. Ragan really flies off the horse for her DTY but she still landed short. Give her an inch in height and she should be fine.
Aly looked very good on beam. Only one connection was iffy but , DEAR ALY, Don’t leave it on the training floor this time.
Marta seems to be giving Aly a lot of comments during her routine. Talk about nerve wracking BS no one else has to deal with.
Okay now I am pretty much bored. What did you think?
Started watching this and found it more fun to watch then the entire set of videos. First the US’s warm up at the beginning. Everyone knows what to do and when to do it. All in unison. The damn Canadians were in the way half the time doing their own warm up in unison. Ashton didn’t do the back bends when everyone else did.
Then later on in the video you can see Rhonda and Kristie Phillips talking up a storm while the girls are training. Is Kristie judging this meet because to me that seems like a conflict of interest.
Regan fell on her first floor pass. Explains why i didn’t see the video on USA-Gymnastics individual routines. As much as I dislike this music at least her choreography is different from everyone elses. At least in part.
This is why I can’t stand Gracie Gold. Everyone else is dressed nicely and she is dressed like she’s the princess of the ball. Girl needs to get over herself.lol
