Afanasyeva's '12 Olympic Floor Final Routine
Not a bad routine except for the out of bounds. In fact on the BBC slow motion feed she didn't even go out of bounds on the double layout. The BBC commentators even noted that she might have not been out of bounds on the double layout, she got deducted for it though. Regardless, it was not a medal worthy performance with the 1/1 twist being completely out of bounds. In a recent interview about her gymnastic future career she stated that if everyone went perfect in the Olympic floor finals she could have only place as high as second place. This clearly means that she thinks no one could of touched Raisman if Raisman went perfect. It's going to be hard for a lot of gymnasts to beat Raisman in the new quad. Raisman will benefit a lot from the new floor rules.
